#1 Updated by Dominic Cleal about 5 years ago

  • Status changed from New to Feedback

This looks like a filesystem permissions issue. Perhaps if you've run one of Foreman's rake tasks or similar as root it's created files in tmp/ that are root-owned. Try doing a "chown -R foreman:foreman ~foreman/tmp/".

#2 Updated by Alexander Chuzhoy about 5 years ago

chown -R foreman.foreman /usr/share/foreman/tmp did the trick.

Apparently, some file had a wrong owner under some directory...
