Apache/Subversion: SSL negotiation failed: SSL error: parse tlsext

If you are getting an error like the following when you do a large import or commit to Subversion over SSL:

Error: MKCOL of  
‘/repository/!svn/wrk/{GUID}/project/trunk/folder/file.ext’
SSL negotiation failed: SSL error: parse tlsext (https://mysite.com)


try modifying your Apache server’s httpd.conf, changing the SSLProtocol line like this:


#SSLProtocol -ALL +SSLv3 +TLSv1
SSLProtocol -ALL +SSLv3

Of course this will only work if you don’t need TLSv1 🙂

(I ran into this while running Subversion 1.6.5 over Apache 2.2.13 on Windows 2003 Server)

 

Hope this helps!

    Thanks a lot! I used
    SSLProtocol +ALL -SSLv2 -TLSv1
    to disable the problematic TLSv1 and it started to work!
