I followed this process,[ ] to setup my server, everything is up and running. But when using the application through the server, the application keeps telling me i do not have server administrative permissions to make the changes. Im not entirely sure if its server related. It’s my first time with such a project. thank you

Hi there,

The issue is mostlikely that the files are owned by the root user.

What you would need to do is to use a chown command, that will change the owner of the files from the root to your-username.

The command that you would need to run is:

sudo chown -R your_user:your_user /home/your_user/foundrydata

Hope that this helps!

Thank you! That was exactly what was needed!
