Error file put contents meta services json failed to open stream Permission denied

+1 vote

I am new to Laravel. I was trying to open http://localhost/test/public/ and I got

Error in exception handler.

I googled around and changed the permission of storage directory using chmod -R 777 app/storage but to no avail.

I changed debug=>true in app.php and visited the page and got Error in exception handler:

The stream or file "/var/www/html/test/app/storage/logs/laravel.log" could not be opened: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /var/www/html/test/bootstrap/compiled.php:8423

Then I changed the permissions of storage directory using the command chmod -R 644 app/storage and the 'Error in exception handler' error was gone and a page is loaded. But in there I am getting this:

file_put_contents(/var/www/html/laravel/app/storage/meta/services.json): failed to open stream: Permission denied

Hello @kartik,

Below steps helped me fix the issue.

1.Find out the apache user - created a test.php file in the public folder with the code

<?php echo exec('whoami'); ?>

         And run the file from the web browser. It would give the apache user. In my case, it is ec2-user as I was using the aws with cronjob installed in /etc/cron.d/. It could be different user for others.

2.Run the below command on the command line.

        sudo chown -R ec2-user:<usergroup> /app-path/public

You need to identify and use the right "user" and "usergroup" here.

Thank You!!
