SVN PROPFIND 405 Method Not Allowed

Problem

I was getting the following error after trying to update a SVN repository.

[php]PROPFIND of ‘/’: 405 Method Not Allowed[/php]

And had no idea what it meant. I read on the internet that could be from trying to checkout a file that is none existent. The interesting thing is that I was just doing an update (svn update).

Solution:

[php]svn cleanup[/php]

That solved my problem immediately. After running the cleanup command I was able to make my update.
