SVN : Attempt to Write A Read Only Database

Thursday, October 27, 2011 0 Comments

First time I knew 'subversioning' was not long ago. It started when we have a server in our office, a few days before now. Might be a week? I think so. Back to topic. We build our own server using Ubuntu Server 11.10. And we try our subversion apps, we stucked at error when commiting. The error was 'attempt to write a read only database'..

But now, the prob is fixed :) Here our way to fix it

['How to' Section]

The error 'attempt to write a read only database' is a file permission issue. Find a file *.db named 'db-cache.db' inside /svn/repos/project_name/db/ and allow group write permission. After that, fiola.. everytime we do commit, the message go away #yay
