Re: Commit blocked by pre-commit hook (exit code 255) with no output

If I understand your pre-commit script, it consists of two lines and can only exit with a status of 0. Exit 255 code usually means that your script couldn't get executed.

• You're on Linux or Unix.
• Script is in the hooks directory
• The whole repository is owned apache:apache. And that's the user running the repository.
• you've tried logging in as user apache, unset PATH, and tried to run the script manually.
