subversion plugin: Lock obtain timed out


I've just migrated to jira 6.2.3 and subversion plugin 1.0 (was 0.10.14 but they aligned version numbers) ...

Since the upgrade we are getting tons of this error message, despite svn linking seems to be fine. My guess is that is caused by a permission-related issue, when trying to create the ".lock" file,

any thoughts on this?

I had the same problem under windows. I have resolved it by making the directory JIRA_HOME\caches\indexes\plugins\atlassian-subversion-revisions world writable.

Finally I've disabled the plugin, then granted rw permissions to the plugin\ directory, enabled & full reindexed.

It worked!

I've tried both of these and still no indexes (write.lock) file. :(
