Support » Fixing WordPress » Cannot commit plugins changes to SVN repository

  • Resolved MatthewRuddy


    Hi. So since the last update I’ve made to my plugin the Easing Slider, I’ve made the switch from Windows to Mac. I’ve been trying to figure out the SVN system again without having to use Terminal (I will be making many changes to the plugins soon and so I’d rather use a GUI tool rather than command lines).

    Anyway, it was working fine using an app called Cornerstone. However, its stopped working and I cannot figure out why. Here’s the error I’m getting:

    Description : You are not authorized to access the files in the repository.
     Suggestion : You might be required to provide a user name and password when prompted before being allowed to access the repository.
    Technical Information
          Error : V4AuthorizationError
      Exception : ZSVNAuthorizationException
    Causal Information
    Description : Commit failed (details follow):
         Status : 170001
           File : subversion/libsvn_client/commit.c, 867
    Description : MKACTIVITY of '/!svn/act/34afb25e-2b09-4a33-bdb1-5de58232ccb3': authorization failed: Could not authenticate to server: rejected Basic challenge (
         Status : 170001
           File : subversion/libsvn_ra_neon/util.c, 604

    I’ve entered my username and password (the same ones used to log into this site), but no luck. I’ve no access to the email sent to me when the plugin was accepted a year ago furthermore so I’m not sure if the SVN repository and the support forums use the same username and password.

    Can anyone shed some light on this? Trying to make changes to the repository at the moment is more frustrating than fixing the plugin bugs themselves.
