Stash not finding STASH_HOME variable

Stash can't find my STASH_HOME variable on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

I've done "echo $STASH_HOME" and I got the variable, but Stash cannot find it.

This is the error I get:

Stash doesn't know where to store its data. Please configure the STASH_HOME
environment variable with the directory where Stash should store its data.
Ensure that the path to STASH_HOME does not contain spaces. STASH_HOME may
be configured in, if preferred, rather than exporting it as an
environment variable.

It does not contain spaces.

Hi there,

How did you configured the STASH_HOME folder?

Was it written on /etc/environment or was it described on file?

Please give a try adding STASH path on file, located on bin folder.

Also, please let me know how it goes for you.


The stash documentation about using Stash as service can be found on

Exit the session, login back in as the stash user and see if you can echo the STAHS_HOME variable correctly.
