Pipeline cache downloading and extracting but not loading

So I cache a the folder "_bin" under the cache named "bin." 


After running a pipeline that creates the cache, I run my tests. 

In the build setup, the output reads: 


pipeline output help.PNG




This cache holds a compiler needed for testing, however when using said compiler, an error is thrown.

I have tried running the pipeline that creates the cache in the same pipeline that tests it, and that works fine, so it is not a faulty path or any other error that I know of. 


My .yml where it causes the error:

pipelne cache help.PNG


The script sets the path then tests to see if the compiler exists, and this is where it is failing. 


In another post, I saw someone say that the output should download, extract, THEN load; which mine does not. So I believe this is the error. 

Can anyone confirm this?


Either way, what could be some possible issues here? Thanks.

So I found the issue, which is pretty strange. I am using a custom cache and it should by default be in the root dir.

But I came across a fix that I don't think should have worked.

The fix:

For whatever reason, adding the $BITBUCKET_CLONE_DIR variable which specifies the root dir fixed the issue.


This means that they could be lying about custom caches, and that it doesn't really start at the root dir unless you specifically tell it to. 


Either way my gcc script can find the cache fine and do its thing now. yay.
