I'm trying to upload my plugin for the first time to the WordPress SVN. I've been granted access from the WordPress team. I am able to download the directory. Then I try to place my plugin files into the trunk folder, and then commit the changes. When I do this. I am prompted for my login credentials. I use the same ones that I use on the Wordpress.org website. However, it keeps re-prompting me to enter my credentials.

I am not sure what I am doing wrong. I made a screencast of the process.

Try changing your password @ wordpress.org then retry.

If still fails check your firewall log

If it still fails ... ask Andrew Nacin :) http://twitter.com/#!/blamenacin :)

Funny, I tried this right before I saw your response. Didn't work though :( – mikemick Nov 1 '10 at 14:15
It might be a firewall issue. I'm in a corporate setting, and there are all kinds of restrictions on everything. I'll try it in a different environment later on, and report back. Thanks. – mikemick Nov 1 '10 at 14:17
I changed it to "https" based on your Firewall comment, and it now works. Yippee!! – mikemick Nov 1 '10 at 14:23

I've had issues with this as well, and my solution was to use a different form of the plug-in repository URL.

They give you: http://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/PLUGIN-NAME

With Tortoise SVN I've successfully used: http://svn.wp-plugins.org/PLUGIN-NAME

Give that a try and see if it helps.

Same situation. However, that is a nice tidbit to know. Thanks. – mikemick Oct 29 '10 at 15:57

Try clicking the "Save authentication" checkbox...? I had an issue like that, and if I wasn't saving the authentication, I would have to reenter password before every single command or transfer.

Yup, I've done that. Same thing. – mikemick Oct 29 '10 at 17:29
