Re: How to clean the working dir from .svn folders ?

Hello,
as svn is the owner of .svn directories I suppose it can delete them.
More over according to my experience process launched into exec() have more
rights that other php functions.

For help here is my possible workflow :
checkout
some commits
delete the working directory

I'm in local on Windows for the moment, I'm going to install a local FTP
server to check the rights of the files.
But they are created by svn, in my mind it could delete them.

Damien.

Guten Tag Damien Mistic,

If you don't have permission executing unlink on those files, doing it
within exec won't change a thing, right? The permissions stay the same,
however they look like for your webserver.

But what is the difference between having a functional working copy,
destroy it by deleting the .svn folders and a clean export, which is
designed to make exactly what you want? Maybe you should describe your
scenario a bit more.

And what will this change if your error is permissions on the
.svn-folders and files in there?

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
