Security Reminder
Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.

Hi @HedHernan

You might have a temporary folder that is just locked down. So first you can search for the folder and if it’s there make sure it’s writable. Otherwise you should be able to use commands like mkdir and chmod to create one and get it going.

Hi, mi friend NickB


Thank you very much for answering me, I can’t find the folder you mentioned… unfortunately I am an electronic engineer with little programming skills, it would be a bother to ask you for a step-by-step guide to help me. I would really appreciate it since I need to get my website online.

Here is a step-by-step guide that would probably be better than anything I could put together :slight_smile:
