Subgit install fails

Dear Subgit.
When using subgit with a single projekt/folder, it works.
But when I try to sync a whole projet, with subproject/folders etc, then I get this.
The error message “svn: E175002: timed out waiting for server” and “svn: E175002: REPORT request failed on ‘/svn/!svn/bc/2350107/aax2sc’” suggests that you are encountering a timeout issue when trying to access a Subversion (SVN) repository. The error message “Read timed out” confirms this.
Can you assist and point me in the right direction?
Thank you.

Hello Karoly!

Thank you for reaching out to us on that matter!

Judging from the description, it seems the whole project synchronization attempt hits server-side timeout: when the whole project is set for synchronization, SubGit needs to scan more history and prepare more data which takes a longer time comparing to the time needed for a single folder, and during this preparation it hits the server timeout which ends up with the error. A possible workaround for such an issue it to increase the timeout setting for the http server that serves the SVN; for example, for Apache it can be done like follows:

Another possible workaround is to use another protocol to access the SVN server, like svn or ssh.
