We recently migrated our server from Windows 2003 to Windows 2008 R2. Contribute Publishing Service was installed on the old server and worked fine until we moved it to the new server. There are all sorts of connection problems since then. This one happened on most (not all) contribute clients.
(1) first, we removed old connections on contribute client (to start fresh)
(2) try to connect to the web site using the same key
(3) was asked for username/password and passed authentication
(4) everything seems working fine and I was able to make changes to the web pages as it supposed to.
Problem is: if I close contribute client and open it up again to do more work, it throws error at me:
"The Administrator has changed the Subversion settings for this site. Remove the connection to the site and recreate the connection."
If I re-do all above (1) - (4), I am able to connect just fine again until I close contribute, then I do another circle of the same thing. I am the administrator but I have no idea what "subversion" refers to and I sure not changed anything on the server.
pulling my hair all day yesterday and today, can anyone help?
Did you find a correction for this issue?
We are having the same problem on some of our sites. Anything we migrated from the old server is expriencing this issue.
not sure exactly but the problem went away after we re-done the Contribute set up for administrators with Contribute client on admin's desktop. Especially, I removed the option to encrypt admin settings on local computer which was previously selected. Be aware, you will lose your site settings (user roles etc.) and you would have to re-create all roles and put users back into those groups. We have a rather smaller Role/group settings, so that was not a huge problem for us. We are actully moving away from Contribute. we just had too many problems with it and there is just not much support from adobe or the general Internet.
