Error deploying using Trellis

Hey guys,

I have my deployment set up and have been deploying regularly to my staging environment. However now when I run:

ansible-playbook deploy.yml -e env=staging -e site=staging.mydomain.com -vvv

I get the following error

rmtree failed: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/srv/www/staging.mydomain
.com/releases/20190409141126/web/app/themes/sage/vendor/illuminate/view/Vie
wName.php'
The full traceback is:

    }
}

I had gotten this error once before, retried the deploy and it worked. However now, no amount of retries will fix the issue.

I have also re-provisioned the server by running ansible-playbook server.yml -e env=staging. WIth no luck.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Ian

Hi there,

There should be a solution in one of the existing threads for this error:

https://discourse.roots.io/search?q=%5BErrno%2013%5D%20Permission%20denied

See:

Thanks @ben

I have solved the issue by:

ssh staging.mydomain.com 
sudo su -
cd /srv/www/staging.mydomain.com
ls -l # take note of the `current` symlink and which directory it points to
cd releases
rm -rf foldername # remove all the folders except the one which matches the symlink

Note, I assume that this will break any rollbacks, so be cautious just in case.
