SVN download of NOTEPAD++ source
I am attempting to do a tortoisesvn update from
And I am getting an error message that says
"“does not support the HTTP/DAV protocol”
This used to work fine about a month ago. Does anyone know what might be wrong?
That is NOT helpful. Please refrain from posting unhelpful or wrong information, as people will find this via searches in the future, and we don’t want to send them down the wrong road. Thanks.
does not support the HTTP/DAV protocol
I just searched for that (specifically,
github svn "does not support the HTTP/DAV protocol"), and found https://stackoverflow.com/questions/53129732/did-github-shut-down-its-support-for-subversion-clients
In that post, it was suggested that there was a change from TortoiseSVN 1.10 to 1.11 which caused that error to start. Did you update TortoiseSVN in the last few months? If so, that probably explains it.
As an experiment, I did a fresh checkout with TortoiseSVN 1.10, and I was able to check out the repo just fine. (Cannot test an update until a change is committed… sorry. But I’ve never seen a checkout work in a situation where an update would not work.)
I had this issue too, a downgrade to v1.10.2 solved it. Tortoise v1.11.0 is linked against Subversion v1.11.0. This brought some changes which are not compatible with the GitHub SVN bridge. That has already happened in the past and had been fix sometime.
Sounds reasonable I will try the backlevel version of TortoiseSVN; Thanks
Thanks to all; backleveling to TortoiseSVN 1.10.2 solved the problem.
