I'm attempting to add a post-commit hook to Subversion that will send an email to a group of users when a change is committed to the code base.

I have been following these instructions, however when I make a commit, the command appears to be executing on the client that made the commit, rather than the SVN server.

To test this, I have tried using the following command as a post-commit hook:

@echo %1 %2>C:\svnhooktest.txt

expecting a text file with the repository path and revision number to be created on the server's C: drive. However, the file is created on the client's C: drive, causing me to believe that the command is being run on the client.

Does anyone know why this might be happening, and how I can get the command running on the server?

If you did follow the instruction and put the code to the post-commit.cmd then the hook has to be working as expected.

I can advise to follow steps from the answer to analyze what the hook actually does.

  • Thanks for your answer. I tried what you said in the linked answer but unfortunately it was no help. The log just re-indicates that the script is running on the client, which is not the behaviour I am expecting. – Simon Adcock Oct 23 '14 at 11:13
