Hello Tech Community,
I have successfully set up SVN support on a local IS v9.12 running on a Windows computer according to the “Configuring the VCS Integration Feature”. So I know the procedure and know that the SVN repository is set up properly.
Then, I wanted to configure SVN on our central development IS v9.8 which is running on RHEL. However, when I come to the step where I have to enter the location of the SVN repository (chapter “Connecting to Subversion for the First Time”) and click “Save Changes”, the browser sends the request to the web server and then waits for a reponse (“Waiting for response …”) literally for hours (I waited approx. 2 hours since the IS hosts about 100 packages; this step took only about 3-4 minutes on my local IS, but it hosts only about 30 packages). Neither the error log nor the server log contain any related records. Additionally, I checked the following prerequisites:
- the Apache SVN client version 1.7.14 is installed (/usr/bin/svn)
- the path to the SVN client is included in the user’s path variable (/usr/bin)
- connectivity from IS to SVN server verified
I have searched the forums and KB articles, but didn’t find any applicable hint.
Hence, I don’t know why it is not working. Has anybody an idea?
