November 12, 2007 – 11:08pm svn: can’t commit — working copy is missing or not locked

If you accidentally remove a directory from your version-controlled project and try to commit, you will probably get an error similar to this. To fix it, try and remember *not* to remove or move any version-controlled file from the filesystem directly, but rather use the “svn mv” or “svn rm” commands.

To fix it, do an “svn update” in the removed directory’s enclosing directory to restore it, then do a nice “svn rm” on the folder you had originally removed. Finally, do an “svn ci” to save your changes.
