Setup: We can't write to your home directory

Setup: We can't write to your home directory

Your dedicated Confluence user needs read, write and execute permissions to the Confluence home directory /var/atlassian/application-data/confluence


but I have another home folder installed!
in the file: <installation-directory> /confluence/WEB-INF/classes/ it is written:
"confluence.home = / atlassian / application-data / confluence"

Maybe somewhere you need to reset the cache? Just in case, I created a copy of the home pack, where the system asks for the rights to both home folders to be correct, I executed the commands:
$ chown -R confluence <home-directory>
$ chmod -R u = rwx, go-rwx <home-directory>

Did you restart Confluence after changing the properties file to point at the desired directory?
