Start with something as simple as writing

echo 'it works' >/tmp/myhook

at the top of your hook script (assuming it's a shell script, of
course; for a different lanugage such an "I'm working" test will be
different) and see if it at least runs when you perform the action the
script is hooked onto.

If you'll see that /tmp/myhook file created then the hook script works
and the problem is elsewhere.  Otherwise do figure out why the hook did
not run (wrong name, not executable by the user with which credentials
Git runs etc).
