Cannot auto commit after update


I am trying to figure out how to auto update a remote website (hosted on a Windows 2008 server) whenever changes are committed to the remote repository (located on same).

I am using this batch file in a post-commit hook...

"C:\Program Files (x86)\VisualSVN Server\bin\svn.exe" update --username usera --password passa --config-dir "C:\Program Files (x86)\VisualSVN Server\conf"

If I run this locally at the command prompt, on the remote server, logged in as Administrator, it works. If I run it remotely, by doing an svn update from TortoiseSVN, the batch file fires, but no update occurs and no error messages are shown.

I have found a few websites explaining how to do this in an apache/linux/unix environment (see links below), but how can I do this in an IIS/windows environment using VisualSVN? 

Has anyone got this to work in a Windows environment?

Common problem on linux platforms are the user priviliges the script runs with.

Maybe it helps to check, wether the svn or the (web)server user have access to the working copy.

Thanks cf13. What is the web server user called? Is it IIS_IUSR ?

I have got around this issue for now by running the update batch file in a windows task every 5 minutes.

Please close this job.
