svn: Error setting property svn ignore

Solving svn ignore problems

When using SVN you can come across the following error when committing your changes:


org.tigris.subversio​n.javahl.ClientExcep​tion: Failed to execute WebDAV PROPPATCH
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: At least one property change failed; repository is unchanged
RA layer request failed
svn: Error setting property 'ignore':
Could not execute PROPPATCH.

With TortoiseSVN you can fix this error by recreating the SVN ignore file.

Here is a detailed list:

  1. Go to your root SVN Repo folder
  2. Choose TortoiseSVN -> Properties
  3. Delete the SVN .ignore file
  4. When you now want to commit the SVN Repo root folder with TortoiseSVN, you’ll see all the directories which you have previously ignored. Here you can add them back to SVN ignore file if needed.

Committing your work to SVN will now work again!
