Solving 403 Forbidden error during svn commit

Posted on

Every time i commit my code changes to svn i get the following error which was working before:

RA layer request failed
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: CHECKOUT of ‘/svn/myapp/!svn/ver/379/Build/Source/myapp/WebContent/META-INF/context.xml’: 403 Forbidden (

This is how i solved it.
1. Open svn server manager.
2. Click on Repositories.
3. Right click on your application and click on properties.
4. You will see the list of user.
5. Click on the user you want to give permission and the select Read/Write permission.
6. Click Apply and ok.

Hope this helps.
