SVN + SSH Causes webrick to hang

Added by Jon Welters about 10 years ago

Good morning all,

I'm working on getting redmine running to demonstratre to our software team. However I've ran into a snag, all of our SVN repositories run over ssh but don't use port 22. It's easy enough to add a line to the .ssh/config file to tell the ssh syntax to use a different port for normal svn+ssh usage. However Redmine seems to have some issues, when using a repository that is setup like this Redmine just hangs and eventually becomes useless until it's restarted. Redmine is running under a user that's fully configured to run a command like svn co svn+ssh://server-url/path/repo however it just dies when redmine goes to do the same thing. I'm assuming due to the non generic port usage.

Any help would be appreciated !

Thanks,
Jon

After some testing that doesn't appear to be the issue. I created a test repository on the same server in question and it fails. The repository I need to link into redmine has some svn:externals, are those known to cause problems. Other then that it is fairly large. Is there a known issue with large repositories and Redmine?

Hmmm.... I have the repository imported and working ! Turns out it just took 21 minutes to import (without showing signs of progress).

Last question, is there a way to get Redmine to recognize svn:externals ? That would be a big help for us and would be the breaking point as to whether it's worth the effort to transition our system from Trac to Redmine.

Thanks !,
Jon
