Hello Ryan,

Thanks for your kind guidance. This time I have created a new folder and
chekout the repo within that folder . Then I did some modification in
the "newfile" and tried to commit. As you expected there is no such
errors as before. The repo has been updated BUT post-commit failed with

Sending newfile
Transmitting file data .
Committed revision 36.

Warning: 'post-commit' hook failed with error output:
Error validating server certificate for '':
 - The certificate is not issued by a trusted authority. Use the
   fingerprint to validate the certificate manually!
 - The certificate hostname does not match.

svn: PROPFIND of '/repos/test': Server certificate verification failed:

Surprisingly svn list with out any

Also the manual test as you suggested is working well

env -i ./post-commit /var/www/html/POSTCOMMIT/ 36
 svn post commit called
U /var/www/html/POSTCOMMIT/newfile


What might be then the problem with updating via https ? svn list is
working well but not the hook !!!

Here is again my post-commit script

#! /bin/bash


echo " svn post commit called "
/usr/bin/svn up /var/www/html/POSTCOMMIT || exit $?

Please suggest any mistake which I might still overlooking ???
