Error: EACCES: permission denied, mkdir '/tmp/jsreport/cli'

  • Not sure what happened cloned the process from a working server and I got this following the same steps.

     jsreport start
          throw err

    hi! hmm i recommend checking the permissions you have over the /tmp or /tmp/jsreport folder (if exists) and verify if you are able to create a folder at /tmp or /tmp/jsreport with the current logged user you have in the OS. this error is just the OS complaining the logged user does not have the necessary permissions to create a folder at /tmp

  • Thanks that's what I thought strange that I did not have issue on the first server with same setup

    ubuntu@reports:/tmp/jsreport$ sudo sudo chmod -R 777 /tmp/jsreport/
    ubuntu@reports:/tmp/jsreport$ mkdir /tmp/jsreport/cli
