File access errors


  • assistant setup authorize button cannot be clicked
  • assistant setup progress lost after reload


Inaccessible configuration files happen on certain platform. This will be fixed in the next release. For the time being here are some solutions

Manually create the files

See the GitHub issue.

Manually change the permissions

The directory that needs to be accessible is /lib/assistant.

Advanced: Make sure to grant the user running the api, r+w permissions.

Quick and dirty: chmod -R 777 test/

Run the api as root

This is the last option to check if the error is access related. DON'T DO THIS AS A FIX!
