Hello fellow SCMers,

i recently bumped into an issue with my SCM-server version 2.12 (i have been upgrading all the way from 2.0.0) where i can no longer create a new SVN repository. 
I have attached to this email a screenshot of the error, its text as well as the details of the RPM package.

I would greatly appreciate if someone could help figure out where the issue is.

Thank you,
Gianluca

looks like the issue was that the path /tmp/scm-work was not there, i manually created it and the problem went away.
Perhaps a bug in the RPM pre/post install script where it isn't creating the directory when upgrading from a previous version?

Thank you,
Gianluca

I can't confirm the bug. The workdir is created on startup of scm-manager:


But maybe we can make it more secure by checking if the working directory still exists before using it. I've created a ticket at https://github.com/scm-manager/scm-manager/issues/1493
