Smells like a basic Unix permissions issue.  Do you have write permission on
those files in question?  Is it possible you made the checkout with one user
(maybe the web user) and tried to commit with another (your personal account)?

To avoid this sort of thing, I'd recommend leaving the checkout your web site
is running on alone and have a second checkout to develop on.  Then when your
development is complete just do an "svn up" from the web site checkout.

Hating the web since 1994.
