Error parsing svn output: #<REXML::ParseException: No close tag for /lists/list>

Added by Sergey Kolodyazhnyy about 12 years ago

Hi, everyone

Today I have tried to setup Redmine to work with SVN server trough HTTPS protocol but it's not working. In production.log I have found this exception:

No close tag for /lists/list
Last 80 unconsumed characters:
Output was:
 <?xml version="1.0"?>

It look like invalid XML format in SVN output and Redmine can't parse it. Also I have found issue #3929 which discribe same problem and it's closed (but I didn't saw working solution).

Server configuration:
- VirtualSVN server (on the separate server, I have no access to it configuration)
- SVN client 1.6
- Redmine (1.2 stable, up-to-date from svn repository)
- Apache 2.2 + mod_passanger

I found another good solution for the problem!
I've noticed for some older versions of redmine older SVN is used so that server certification is important for them and there is no switch in those old SVN's to bypass the problem, so the solution is to add your certificate as a CA (certificate authority) to your server ca store. for doing that just follow the instructions in section Method #2: Site-wide of here
