Cannot commit to Atlassian OnDemand SVN repository

I am working on a project hosted on Atlassian OnDemand. Yesterday when I tried to commit some code to its built-in SVN repository, I got the following error from TortoiseSVN:

Command Commit
Error Commit failed (details follow):
Error Can't create directory '/data/jirastudio/svn/root/db/transactions/17-z.txn': No
Error such file or directory

I was able to commit to the same SVN repository just a week ago. The error looks like a permission issue, but I did not change the default permission settings for that project. I am in the administrators, developers, and users groups.

Does anyone have an idea why this is happening? Any help is appreciated!

Great! Be sure to mark this question as answered to help others find this question :)

An Atlassian engineer fixed the issue after I created a support ticket for it. It turned out that the problem was on the Atlassian OnDemand server. The following is from the engineer's comment:

It looks like there was a side-effect of an outage your instance experienced over the weekend. I have repaired the missing directory and was able to successfully commit after that.
