• When first creating my plugin I was using Windows and Tortoise SVN to update and push changes to the plugin SVN.

    Now, however, I am running Ubuntu 16.04LTS and need to connect again to push new updates.

    The problem is that no matter how I try, I cannot gain access to commit.


    svn ci -m "updated readme for recent WP versions" --username HarmonicDesign --password mySuperSecretWordPressForumPassword


    svn: E215004: Commit failed (details follow):
    svn: E215004: No more credentials or we tried too many times.
    Authentication failed


    svn: E215004: Commit failed (details follow):
    svn: E175013: Access to ‘/!svn/me’ forbidden
    Authentication failed

    depending on which account I attempt to access it with.

    Anyone have an idea on what’s going on? I’m hoping it’s something simple and stupid such as trying to commit to the wrong repository or something. Perhaps the dev svn is a different path than http://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/plugin-name.

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Make sure you are calling svn from your plugin root and that your plugin folder structure matches your repository. Sort of obvious, just making sure 😉

    Go through the Subversion section of the Plugin Handbook and be sure you’ve addressed all the details of using Subversion.

    How long has it been since you last updated? A lot of plugins that appeared to be inactive have been deactivated. You would have been sent email warnings, but that line of communication can often fail. If your account keeps having authentication issues, contact the plugin team at plugins@wordpress.org to verify your plugin’s current status.

    I had similar issues (using command line on OS X 10.11) and the solution was as simple as surprising for me: my password contained the character ) and that breaks the command line commands
