We are experiencing an error “Can not write to the LESS cache folder” when trying to Apply Config. I tried steps in this post: Exception Can not write to the LESS cache folder after update to 14 and that did not help either.
Error on WebGUI:
Unable to continue. Can not write to the LESS cache folder at /var/www/html/admin/modules/endpoint/assets/less/cache. Please run (from the CLI): fwconsole chown:: in /var/www/html/admin/libraries/utility.functions.php on line 207
#0 /var/www/html/admin/libraries/BMO/Less.class.php(187): die_freepbx(‘Can not write t…’)
#1 /var/www/html/admin/libraries/BMO/Less.class.php(94): FreePBX\Less->getCachedFile(’/var/www/html/a…’, ‘/admin/assets/e…’, Array)

#3 /var/lib/asterisk/bin/retrieve_conf(550): connectdirs->generate_less(‘endpoint’)
When I’m run the fwconsole chown command with –file parameters, it returns the following:
[[email protected] ~]# fwconsole chown --verbose --file=/var/www/html/admin/libraries/utility.functions.php
Taking too long? Customize the chown command, See http://wiki.freepbx.org/display/FOP/FreePBX+Chown+Conf
Setting specific permissions…
Unable to find permissions for /var/www/html/admin/libraries/utility.functions.php, is this owned by the PBX? Did you set an override?
Finished setting permissions
Not sure if I’m missing any steps in between the commands.
I ran fwconsole reload as suggested in another thread for Reload failed because retrieve_conf encountered an error: 1 and the warning got cleared but appears when Apply Config is clicked.
