"Commit failed (details follow): Server sent unexpected return value (403 Forbidden) in response to MKACTIVITY (Possible reasons, what to do)"
This problem is often about different permissions for different SVN paths.
If you get
Commit failed (details follow): Server sent unexpected return value (403 Forbidden) in response to MKACTIVITY request for '/svn/reponame/your/path'
First, try to write to another SVN path on the server.
If that is also not possible, admin maybe needs to check IP based restrictions, or LDAP-based restrictions.
In the case you cant write to that specific Dir,
it is very likely your user has no write permission for the path
/svn/your/path. I.e. path based permissions configuration issue.
1. Go to command line;
svn ls svn://your.server/svn/reponame/your/path (the full URL of the path);
3. Enter credentials if needed. If you have no access, you user can’t even read the path
4. If you can list the path, user can read, but probably can’t write
Next thing is to contact the SVN Admin. And for Admin is to check the
The reason you cannot read the path may be that the
svnaccess file which has restriction for your user or your group.
[reponame:/some/path] SomeuserOrGroup = r
Admin could probably test that by commenting out the line
hope, could help you. Have fun ;)
