SVN Exclude files and dirs


I'd like to set up a working copy of files from svn and exclude 2 dirs and 2 files from svn update, but svn:ignore didn't help.

Let me illustrate the situation. I have a CMS that has its config.php, .htaccess, upload dir and template dir. I want to include these into svn because I commit the changes for default files. But after I check out to a working copy, I want to "detach" these 4 files from version control - I don't want them to be updated anymore, because they are changed for each website. But I want to update the other part of code. I tried the svn:ignore property, but didn't help.

Any suggestions?
