We're running Stash 2.12.0 and while deleting a (particular) repository as admin, I got a HTTP 500 error:
/git/stash-home/data/repositories/230/null/jvermeij_test/KEEX_TEST/clone/KEEX/makefile does not exist Please see your system administrator.
I can use the repository, even clone it, but I can't delete it. Is there somebody that has seen this before and has an idea how delete the repository anyway?
I'm not sure how things got into that state, the path that is listed there should definitely not exist in a repository directory. The error occurs because a file listing in the repository directory lists files that don't actually exist.
If you do a 'ls' in the git/stash-home/data/repositories/230/ directory, does that include a null directory? Does the /git/stash-home/data/repositories/230/null/jvermeij_test/KEEX_TEST/clone/KEEX/makefile file exist?
I wonder whether there's a disk issue here or a mangled filesystem? Regardless you should be able to manually delete the 230 directory and subsequently delete the repository in the UI.
Yes, there is a 'null' directory and the file exists:
stash:/git/stash-home/data/repositories/230/null/jvermeij_test/KEEX_TEST/clone/KEEX % ls com makefile xvp
So should I try to
rm -rf /git/stash-home/data/repositories/230
and delete the repo administration via the GUI?
Or do you have another suggestion to delete the repository with Stash commands / GUI?
To be safe you could move the 230 directory out of the way instead of deleting it, but otherwise that's correct.
The fact that the null directory exists is strange. Do you have a custom plugin that could have created those files? Usually, the directory contents for a repository under data/repositories should be something like this:
