I’ve just finished setting up a new FreePBX (188.8.131.52) instance on Ubuntu Server 20.04.
When I access the FreePBX web admin, I get a critical error in the dashboard that reads:
Cache path is not writable! The cache path of /var/spool/asterisk/cache is not writable, caching is not enabled as a result the system might be slower. Please fix this by running ‘fwconsole chown’ from the CLI.
I tried running ‘fwconsole chown’ (again) and restarted with ‘fwconsole restart’ but it didn’t solve the problem. I also restarted the server, but again, it didn’t work. I gave asterisk user permissons manually for that directory, but still, no luck.
Everything seems to work fine, and I installed many modules with success. But, I’m concerned that this will be an issue in the future.
I’ve searched online, but couldn’t find an answer. Other people solved it with ‘fwconsole chown’. Do you know what else I might try?
Thanks to everyone!
