I'm running ruby script/runner "Repository.fetch_changesets" -e production with a cronjob. It works fine with a lot of projects but as soon as I add my "documentation" project I get the following weird error message (200 OK shouldn't be an error?)

svn: REPORT request failed on '/svn-browse/documentation/!svn/bc/145'
svn: REPORT of '/svn-browse/documentation/!svn/bc/145': 200 OK (http://localhost)


#1 Updated by Jean-Philippe Lang over 14 years ago

Where do you see these messages ?

AFAIK, this: /svn-browse/documentation/!svn/bc/145 is not a Redmine url.
The exclamation mark in the url makes me think about this rails plugin:
Do you use this plugin ?

#2 Updated by Nils Adermann over 14 years ago

Well as I said they are the output of the command I specified. I don't have any plugin installed. No idea about the url.

#3 Updated by Antti Perkiömäki over 14 years ago

Can only guess, but if the script is working properly with other names it could crash to the "documentation" name. Then again, you can try other name for the project or post the script that is doing the fetching.

I get the following weird error message (200 OK shouldn't be an error?)

This a svn error message, not a Redmine's one.
What's your repository url ? And what do you get when you manually run the following ?

svn info <url>

#5 Updated by Thomas Lecavelier over 14 years ago

I met that error when I try to access a svn served via HTTP with a proxy that don't understand WebDAV extensions. Have you other http svn repository outside your network?

#6 Updated by Nils Adermann over 14 years ago

The URL is http://localhost/svn-browse/documentation/ and if I try svn info I get the following:

naderman@phpbbsvn:/svn/documentation$ svn info http://localhost/svn-browse/documentation/
Path: documentation
URL: http://localhost/svn-browse/documentation
Repository Root: http://localhost/svn-browse/documentation
Repository UUID: e96c91bf-73f8-46e7-b89f-1e31f7b18a0a
Revision: 145
Node Kind: directory

Not sure what you mean with outside my network? There are thousands of svn repositories online (outside my network) ;-)

#7 Updated by Jean-Philippe Lang over 14 years ago

Redmine and svn are on the same host ?

To see what is going wrong with your repository, you can set Redmine log level to debug (uncomment config.log_level = :debug in config/environment.rb then restart) to see the exact svn commands that are ran against your repository. You will see lines like this in the log file:

Shelling out: <svn command>

Try to run these commands manually to find which one gets the "svn: REPORT request failed" error.
Again, this error is not reported by Redmine but by svn.

#8 Updated by Nils Adermann about 14 years ago

Alright apparently the weird message is caused by so I don't get to see the actual error message.

#9 Updated by Jean-Philippe Lang about 14 years ago

  • Category set to SCM
  • Status changed from New to Closed
  • Resolution set to Invalid

Thanks for the feedback. I close this ticket since it doesn't seem to be related to Redmine.
Reopen if needed.
