Support » Plugins » SVN "access to … is forbidden"

  • I’m trying to update a plugin through SVN, but it consistently fails:

    C:\svn\abcd>svn ci -m "tagging version 2.0"
    Authentication realm: <http://plugins.svn.wordpress.org:80> Use your WordPress.org login
    Password for 'abcde': *******
    Adding         tags\2.0
    svn: E195023: Commit failed (details follow):
    svn: E195023: Changing directory 'C:\svn\abcd\tags\2.0' is forbidden by the server
    svn: E175013: Access to '/!svn/ver/350848/abcd/tags' forbidden

    I’m sure the password is correct (otherwise I’d get a different type of error). Reading in the forums, it seems this happens when SVN is down. How do I know if this is so?

    NB: While at it, WordPress devs really need to work a bit on the plugin development process (including an interactive way to see status).

    Cheers,
    Chris.

    Can anyone confirm that s/he cannot update their plugin through SVN?

    Anyone????

    I do not see a plugin registered to your email address.
    Please send all the details – everything – to plugins@wordpress.org

    @dengbo The problem was that I was using a different account.

    If I remember correctly, Mike simply made my account able to write to SVN.

    Chris.

    I had the same problem today.
    After long and futile attemps I figured out that login is case sensitive and that’s what happens when you don’t match case…

    I’m having the same problem:

    [smsmsi] ~/Web/nurelm-get-posts > svn ci -m "Tested on 3.4.2, Tagging version 0.4"
    Adding         tags/0.4
    svn: E195023: Commit failed (details follow):
    svn: E195023: Changing directory '/home/sms/Web/nurelm-get-posts/tags/0.4' is forbidden by the server
    svn: E175013: Access to '/!svn/ver/271264/nurelm-get-posts/tags' forbidden

    Could somebody give me SVN access again?
