Incorrect Directory Permissions


Installation may fail due to incorrect file permissions on relevant directories during the install process. The error message will indicate no write permission on the relevant directory or that the relevant file does not exist.

Error message



  1. After starting the installation, use the ps or top command to check that the correct account is running the installation.

  2. If the installation log notes issues with the file not existing, check the file permission of the corresponding parent directory.

  3. Check that the installation was started with sudo.


Do one or both:

  1. Use kill to stop any installation processes that may still be running.

  2. Use chown to correct the user or group permissions under the installation directory.

Then, restart the installation.
