Error during: git svn clone “RA layer request failed: PROPFIND request failed on” means fix your proxy configuration

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/05/22

When during a git svn clone you get an error message starting with “RA layer request failed: PROPFIND request failed on” it means you have to set your git svn proxy.

This is in a different location than the git proxy setting (it would be too easy if these were the same, right?).

So you do not get/set it through commands like these:

git config --global --get http.proxy
git config --global http.proxy localhost:3128

Via Cannot do git-svn fetch behind proxy and  git svn clone died of signal 11 under cygwin (thanks janosFredrik Pihl and User Pavel, I found out that you need to change these files (create the .subversion directory and servers file when they do not exist):

  • Windows:
    • %HomeShare%\.subversion\servers
    • %UserProfile%\.subversion\serverssour
  • Linux:
    • ~/.subversion/servers

If you ever run in the same problem with the regular SVN client, then you need to change yet different files (why have 1 standard when you can have many?):

  • Windows:
    • %AppData%\Roaming\Subversion\servers
  • Linux:
    • ~/Subversion/servers

Ensure a section like this exists and fill in the blanks:

[global]
# http-proxy-exceptions = *.exception.com, www.internal-site.org
http-proxy-host = YOURPROXY.com
http-proxy-port = YOURPORT
# http-proxy-username = defaultusername
# http-proxy-password = defaultpassword
# http-compression = no
# http-auth-types = basic;digest;negotiate
# No http-timeout, so just use the builtin default.
# No neon-debug-mask, so neon debugging is disabled.
# ssl-authority-files = /path/to/CAcert.pem;/path/to/CAcert2.pem<

Notes:

In some poorly managed networked environments, the %AppData% environment variable can be wrong, so make sure your Windows profile is not somewhere on a network share.

TortoiseGit seems to use yet another directory for GIT SVN server configuration.
