Subversion 1.6.6 Error “Could not open the requested SVN filesystem”
I am running ubuntu server with Subversion 1.6.6.
In windows I use the latest Tortoise SVN compiled against Subversion 1.6.6.
I create a new Repository and when I attempt to view the repository or import my files and get the following error:
"Could not open the requested SVN filesystem"
I can view the repositories via the command line (as root) but want to view them in Tortoise. Some repositories however are fine and I can view and comit without any problem via Tortoise.
I am sure its a user / permission thing but not sure where to look?
Any suggestions are greatly accepted.
How do you access the repository on your server? If you're using file:///, that won't work since the repository format isn't compatible between OS. You have to use either svn:// or http(s):// to access the repository (and set up the corresponding server app).
If you're already using svn:// or http:// to access the repository, you can check the apache error log or run svnserve in console mode to get more detailed error messages.
your repositories must have full read/write access for the user who runs the server (svnserve or apache).
