Can not login to SVN

Post by bestofJ! » Tue May 01, 2007 10:55 am

Hey all,

We can't login to our SVN and commit the latest changes. Any possible reason?

Many thanks

Mmm, that login problem again. To put on a technical hat, this comes forward because a file on the file system (not in one of the projects, but a GFORGE one) is removed which shouldn't be removed. Don't personally know which one it is, but will take a look.

It does look like SVN is having a problem, we will look n to it. i know there is a lot of migration work going on in the background at the moment, so it might have temporarily effected access.

I have found the cause of the problem. There is a crontab script that runs every once in a while which creates a file with ALL svn authentication information. This crontab didn't finish, due to the process hitting php memory_limit settings. I set the memory_limit to 128 MB, and the file is now automatically generated again. This means it's working again.

Due to the added projects from the Forge migration, a cronjob is taking quite long to finish. That job is creating the permission files for SVN. This times out/collides with another cron job, emptying the created permission files for SVN.

Hey Guys;

For my own personal interest, are you running svn from inetd? There has also been some known issues where inetd thinks SVN is looping causing it to kill access to svn for 10min+

If that's the case, look to increase concurrent connections to svn in inetd....

But I'm sure you knew that  :pop
Thank you for calling the GOD department. What Now?

Will look into that. Still learning on the SVN and GForge front :P. The SVN problems so far, have been with cron jobs that kill the SVN authentication file and not with SVN itself. I will be back at home in half an hour, I will check SVN status straight away.
