Problem configuring pre-recieve server hook

Problem configuring pre-recieve server hook

We’ve just installed a fresh version of gitlab on my own server (v16.1.1-ee). Detailed info:

I tried to follow this guide to set up a pre-receive hook : Server hooks | GitLab

In the gitlab.rb we set the new configuration for gitaly custom hooks after an error of deprecation configuration appears in the reconfigure:

gitaly['configuration'] = {
  hooks: {
    # gitaly['custom_hooks_dir']
    custom_hooks_dir: '/var/opt/gitlab/gitaly/custom_hooks'

In the directory /var/opt/gitlab/gitaly/custom_hooks we’ve create a pre-recieve.d directory with a test hook:

[root@xxxxxxxxxxx gitaly]# vim custom_hooks/pre-receive.d/verifyCommiter

echo "GL-HOOK-ERR: My custom error message.";
exit 1

The hook is not working when pushes are made. Any idea about the problem?
Thank you.

Finally the problems were related to the permissions of the hook.

chmod +x hook
chown userWithPrivileges:userWithPrivileges hook

Now, it works.
