Problem with mkstemp permission



facing some problems with bringing my code per atlassian/rsync-deploy on my ubuntu server.

INFO: Executing the pipe..
INFO: Starting RSYNC deployment to serverIP:../../var/www/*...
rsync -rp --delete-after --no-perms --exclude=wp-content/object-cache.php --exclude=wp-content/uploads/* . bitbucket@serverIP:../../var/www/*
rsync: mkstemp /var/www/ failed: Permission denied (13)

On staging with the same settings there is no problem.

My bitbucket-pipelines.yml is original with these changes:

EXTRA_ARGS: '--no-perms --exclude=wp-content/object-cache.php --exclude=wp-content/uploads/*'

Any idea, how I prevent generating this fault?


Thank you!

Hi @Georg Baur ,

Based on the output, it looks that rsync is trying to create a temporary file but fails due to permission errors.

When you define the pipe atlassian/rsync-deploy in your bitbucket-pipelines.yml file, you specify the user on the remote host to connect as.

Could you please check if this user has write permissions on the directory you are deploying to on your server?

Kind regards,

Hi Theodora,

Thank you so much for your answer!

Yes, I've figured out the same in the meantime.

I don't know why, but the permissions were broke for some reason!
I added the user again, and now it seems to work as it should!

Thank you again!
