This question about Installation of Foswiki: Asked

Could not do LocalSite.cfg: Permission denied

Problem:

I'm trying to move my foswiki instance from a debian virtual machine to a docker machine. I've got a container running the latest version of Apache HTTP with all of the config with it. I've coped the /var/www/foswiki contents to this container and when i try browse to the new instance i receive this error:

Content-type: text/plain

I've checked the permissions of /var/www/foswiki/lib/LocalSite.cfg and it is writable via apache (it's the same permission as on the VM). I also ran the fix_file_permissions.sh script. Any suggestions?

Solution:

It actually a permission issue, still trying to work out the details but the process didnt have the correct permissions

You have probably found the issue but if not, some distros of Linux use SELINUX which requires a -Z when starting with a volume to properly sort the permissions
