I am getting error from Log
  • Hello there,

    I am getting following error from batch program.

    [2021-03-18 04:00:01] fuelphp.ERROR:
    permission denied

    The directory permission is set to 766 and the user have a permission to read/write.

    I gueess the way of initializing logger is maybe wrong.

    So, could you please check it out?

    # How I initialize
    $filename = \Config::get('common.log.dir')'Y')'m').DS.'request-log.php';
    \Config::set('log_file', $filename);
    \Config::set('log_threshold', \Fuel::L_INFO);

    # How I used.
    logger(\Fuel::L_INFO, $something);  

    The strange thing is that this error happens just once a day.
    This error dose not happen second time.

    Do you have any suggetion for this?

    Best regards,

    Under which user does it run? It is usually different from the one the webserver is running.

    chmod operations are only allowed by the file owner, no matter what rights were given. So you can get this error if the file owner is for example httpd, www-data, ....
  • Hello,
    That is right.
    I totally forgot to give the permission to the user that runs batch program.
    Thanks a lot.

  • Hello there,

    I got diffrent error message from file.php like followings.

    [2021-03-25 04:00:01] fuelphp.ERROR: 0 -
    Invalid path:
    directory cannot be read. in /usr/local/batch/fuel/core/classes/file.php
    on line 270 [] [] [1;31mUncaught exception Fuel\Core\InvalidPathException: 0 -
    Invalid path:
    directory cannot be read. in /usr/local/batch/fuel/core/classes/file.php
    on line 270[0m

    This looks like the file path is wrong.

    The correct one should be like this.

    Do you know why I am getting these errors?

  • Incorrect COREPATH set in index.php ?
  • Maybe what I sahre is insufficinet information.

    I changed log setting in config/config.php as following.

            'log_threshold'   => Fuel::L_ALL,
            //'log_path'        => APPPATH.'logs/',
            'log_path'        => '/var/log/fuel/',
            'log_date_format' => 'Y-m-d H:i:s',

    By the way, this is COREPATH that is defined in index.php.

    define('COREPATH', realpath(__DIR__.'/../fuel/core/').DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR);

    Do you have any idea for this error?
    It dose not happend everytime.
    Just once a day.

    So, I feel like this is strange error.

  • I can't see what your setup is.

    If you have /usr/local/batch/service/fuel/core... and /usr/local/batch/service/public/index.php, then that code is ok. If you moved stuff around, you need to adjust the paths accordingly.

    The fact that you get the wrong path suggests public and fuel are not where are are by default.
  • Hi,

    I will share my setup.

    Possibly, folder structure, public/index.php, bootstrap.php and config/config.php enough?

    I guess I did not move anything.

  • Here is folder structure.

  • I did not modify following.

  • Here is config/config.php

  • Hello there,

    It looks like it give me an error when if I change root "log_path" to different folder.

    For example, If I keep the log folder to fuel/app/log then it is no problem.

    OK: /var/html/appname/fuel/app/log
    NG: /var/log/fuel/

    That is a different question than you initially asked.

    On modern distro's, you can't just write in any location without the correct security policies in place (apparmor, selinux).  So you need to write a security policy for that.
  • Hi,
    Thanks for that.
    I did not know about that.
    Thank you.
    I will check it out tomorrow morning :)

Howdy, Stranger!
