In Windows Vista I installed JBoss. When I then logged in as another user for some reason all the JBoss directories had no permissions, i.e. their permissions were 000. I ignored this and went ahead and copied one of the server directories. Then I tried to go into the copied server directory and could not.
Thinking something was funky I tried to delete the whole JBoss directory but got this maddening and uninformative window.
I googled for a long time but could not find a satisfying solution. I gave myself full control permissions for all files and folders but that did not help. Then I noticed that if I clicked on one of the directories that Windows Vista was not letting me delete I would be prompted for permission to enter this directory. Then I would repeat this process for all directories within. After doing this I could delete that directory.
I then looked in Cygwin and found out what Vista had done, it had simply given the directory read and write permission.
Therefore the simple solution was to do the following:
chmod -R 500 .
After doing that simple change I could remove everything.
This post is a log of how I personally got Subversion running on Dreamhost using this post.
- Obtained the Subversion source from http://subversion.tigris.org/project_packages.html#source-release, compiled it, and put the binaries in my
- Added the Subversion binaries to my path by adding these lines to my
# Set PATH so it includes user's private bin if it exists
if [ -d ~/bin ] ; then
For this change to take effect you either have to relogin or:
$ . ~/.bash_profile
- Initialized new subversion repositories. For example:
$ svnadmin create ~/svn/mk
$ svn mkdir \
I am following the suggested way of organizing a Subversion repository.
- Imported the files into the subversion repository. For example:
svn import ~/meetingkoreans.com file:///home/fkim/svn/mk/trunk/
svn import ~/meetingkoreans.com svn+ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org/home/fkim/svn/mk/trunk/
Note: I was having a strange problem when I tried to do an import and kept getting an already exists error. It turned out the problem was because what I was trying to import was a link instead of the actual directory. This might only be an issue on Cygwin.
- Checked the files out. To do this locally:
svn co file:///home/fkim/svn/mk/trunk meetingkoreans.com
To do this remotely:
svn co svn+ssh://email@example.com/home/fkim/svn/mk/trunk mkrb
