Problem creating new directory on build container


#1

Part of our build creates and runs some tests using Lucene indexes, which are stored on the filesystem. However, it seems that my application can’t create the directory. I get denied trying to create /var/foo/lucene/indexes, which causes my application to fail to start.

This is a java application running on the Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty) build environment.

Does CircleCI not allow the creation of that directory? Is there a suggested way to handle situations like this in CircleCI?


#2

I would try using circle.yml to setup the directory beforehand to see if it helps.
