My webserver has multiple domains that I manage with PLESK. Each domain is connected to a git repository on bitbucket.org:

I have set SSH Keys and webhook in my bitbucket repository.

The automatic webhook that is triggered on a push event. This works for all my websites, except for one. I double checked the SSH key and webhook url, both are correct.

I can see the content of the request body, but I did not find any information why the response was not working. I only got HTTP status 500.

Any ideas how I may spot the issue?

  • More information about 500 errors can be found in your error log. Without the log information you won't know what the specific problem is. May 28, 2019 at 8:38

When I clicked manually on "Pull updates" in Plesk, an error message appeared:

error cannot open /var/.../git/FETCH_HEAD: Permission denied

enter image description here

I had to change user permission (see https://stackoverflow.com/a/13195882/2311074) and then manual pull and the webhook was working correctly. I am still wondering if there is anywhere a web hook issue log.
