Failed to save state: open terraform.tfstate: permission denied

I am new to this technology. I have been trying to create AWS EC2 instances using Terraform.

$ terraform apply

I got the following output after executing the above command.

aws_instance.example: Creating...
  ami:                         "" => "ami-2d39803a"

Failed to save state: open terraform.tfstate: permission denied

Although, the EC2 instance gets created, but the state of my infrastructure is not saved as you can note in the last line in the console output.

Can anyone help me with this?

Thanks

Here is what you can do. Just check the permissions of the directory in which terraform have been placed.

Just do the changes according to your requirements in permission mode of home directory and terraform will work fine.

I hope the above information will be helpful to you.
