Capistrano and svn prompts

| No Comments
I've been configuring rails 2 apps for automation with Capistrano 2.6 lately and I encountered a pretty irritating bug with svn. When you run the deploy:update command, Capistrano prompts you for your svn password and your machine password - like it should - and then it hangs forever on the actual deploy step. The problem occurs only when svn continually asks if you want to save your password with one of these dialogs:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
ATTENTION!  Your password for authentication realm:
    Subversion Repository
can only be stored to disk unencrypted!  
...
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Solution: make svn stop asking you if you want to save your password. To do this, modify your ~/.subversion/config so that it has (at least) this section:
[auth]
store-passwords = no
store-auth-creds = no
If you're interested, read more to view the error messages from Capistrano.
