How to make folder accessible to the SSH user


I setup my rails app with mina, like on tutorials on digital ocean help, and read anothers in other sites. I create a deployer user and create manually the “/shared/config/database.yml”, but when I run “mina setup --simulate”, I got the error

echo “! ERROR: Setup failed.” echo “! Ensure that the path ‘/var/www/lideranca’ is accessible to the SSH user.” echo “! Try doing:” echo “! sudo mkdir -p "/var/www/lideranca" && sudo chown -R deployer "/var/www/lideranca"”

I tried almost everything, and I cant undertand why this folder is still not accessible to deployer user.

Could anyone give me soe help here?

When you do ls -lah <br> <br>What is the user:group it shows? Also to make sure, are you doing this in root to make the folder take the permissions it needs for that user?
