Can't create/write to file 'C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\Data\#sql_a5c_1.MYI' (Errcode: 13)

I was having an issue here: https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/261621/mantis-1-0-8-to-jira-5-2

I exported my current mantis schema, and imported it into a new one.

I then created the empty tables required to make Mantis 1.0.8 look like 1.1.8

When I try to run the import tool, I receive the following error:

Unexpected failure occurred. Importer will stop immediately. Data maybe in an unstable state com.atlassian.jira.plugins.importer.SQLRuntimeException: Can't create/write to file 'C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\Data\#sql_a5c_1.MYI' (Errcode: 13)antManager.java:61)

I tried creating the folder above, just to ensure that it was able to write there, but I receive the same error after creating that.

This is the longer log entry:

Error 13 is a MySql error - it means your MySQL user (as in the user running the server) is not able to write to that directory. Permissions usually, but also check for disk space and quota.

Is the importer writing a temporary file on the server that MySQL is running on? Or is it trying to write a temporary file on my Jira server?

It's the mysql server that isn't working.

Thanks Nick, I will check it out.

I ran a disk cleanup on the MySQL drive, and it is now running fine. Thanks for the tip Nic.
