Support » Everything else WordPress » svn: E175013: Access to ‘/!svn/me’ forbidden

  • Hello,

    I was added as a contributor to a certain plugin. So I did svn checkout of the plugin code from, made changes in a file and then when i give svn ci -m ‘changes description’ it asks for user name and password. When i give the username and password, i get the following error message:

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

    I have checked the URL, username and password and all are correct.

    Can anyone help me with this? Thank you.

    It would appear you aren’t added as a committer to any plugins on this account (there’s a difference between a contributor and a committer), only a committer can add code to SVN, this is managed from the plugins Advanced View page, in the right hand sidebar there.

    After one is added, there is a delay before the changes take effect, so you won’t have instant access, wait an hour or so after being added as a committer before giving it a go again.

    Thank you Marius, you rock!

    I was added as the committer and now I am able to commit.
