SVN Troubles

I set up SVN on my account, and I’ve had a lot of trouble with it. After dealing with a permission issue, now when I try to Import or Browse it fails on the OPTIONS command with the message “Could not read status line: connection was closed by server.”

I’ve searched far and wide with no luck on trouble shooting. Anyone had similar issues?

I’m having the same problem since 2 or 3 days ago: Could not read status line: connection was closed by server." My SVN repositories was working well for several weeks until now.

I’m having the same problem since 5 ago.

Yeap. We are having the same issue, as well as a number of other problems – all of which began this past Sunday (and none of them have been resolved).

What web / fileservers are you on?

We are also having this issue with svn. I’d tell you what server I am on, but the panel isn’t responding…

Edit:
Fileservers - pistone, tastesgreat, charger
Web Server - pistone

Hi all,

I had had same issue, and I kludged it using svn+ssh:// instead of http://.

Note that we have to use svn+ssh://svn.example.com/home/{username}/svn/{projectname}/ instead of http://svn.example.com/{projectname}

Exact same problem here. I can work around it with svn+ssh, but don’t want to. Has anyone found a resolution for this?

I had the exact same problem and asked the dreamhost support team about it. They then rebooted the server and everything was up and running again…

Same here. It was an apache config error, and support was able to fix it right up for me.
