When I was trying to commit the new wordpress plugin to wordpress svn repository. I was getting very strange errors. I was bit struggled to understand because I hosted many plugins in wordpress before.
wordpress svn forbidden error!
svn ci -m "add version 2.0" svn: E195023: Commit failed (details follow): svn: E195023: wordpress svn Changing directory 'var/www/*' is forbidden by the server svn: E175013: Access to '/!svn/ver/*' forbidden
I was getting the error something above. Then I realized I trying to access another account with my login access. Because I was the contributor of the plugin not an owner. So now it’s easy to fix. just need to give new user name and password to commit.
svn commit --username=<YOURUSERNAME> -m "add version 2.0"
When we pass –username, it will prompt the password. so after giving correct credentials it will work clearly good.
Great post! I was suck on this problem for a good time.
Thanks for this! I’ve just got the same error when updating my plugin to wp.org.
