unable to lock the instance


Hi, I'm trying to setup the DIY bitbucket backup and while the rsync part works ok the script fails when it tries to lock the instance:

[ -> lock_bitbucket][git] DEBUG: Running curl -L -s -f -u ******:****** http://localhost:7990/mvc/maintenance/lock
[ -> lock_bitbucket][git] ERROR: Unable to lock Bitbucket for maintenance. POST to 'http://localhost:7990/mvc/maintenance/lock' returned ''
Stack trace:
[./ -> lock_bitbucket]
[./ -> main]


When I try to lock the instance manually it fails with permission denied, I tried both the admin password and an API key with admin privs:


curl -s -u" kun...uw":"ND...iy2" -X POST -H "Content-type: application/json" "http://localhost:7990/mvc/maintenance/lock/"


<!DOCTYPE html><html lang="en"><head><meta charset="utf-8"><meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge"><title>Permission denied - EM-Git</title>

(and more html)


please advise.
