Trac repository browser offline: SubversionException: ("Can't open file '/var/svn/macports/format': Permission denied", 13)

Description

The Trac repository browser is offline.

The tooltip over a linked revision number (such as r123456) says:

Couldn't open Subversion repository /var/svn/macports: SubversionException: ("Can't open file '/var/svn/macports/format': Permission denied", 13)

I'm not aware of this ever having happened before, so I don't know why there would suddenly be a permission problem.

Adjusting priority because this is something that broke that used to work.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

The SELinux context of the Trac server's copy of the svn repository got lost during an OS upgrade. I've restored it using a method that should hopefully survive future upgrades. This method probably needs to be used in other places and on the other servers to prevent similar problems.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
