Cannot run app on CakePHP [warning (512)]

Hello,
I am getting an error while trying to run app:

Warning: SplFileInfo::openFile(/Users/username/Sites/cake/app/tmp/cache/persistent/myapp_cake_core_file_map): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /Users/username/Sites/cake/lib/Cake/Cache/Engine/FileEngine.php on line 355

Any ideas how to fix it?

yes, you need to make your Cache directory writable.  The manual even has the commands you can run to fix it assuming you're on linux:

http://book.cakephp.org/2.0/en/installation.html#permissions

HTTPDUSER=`ps aux | grep -E '[a]pache|[h]ttpd|[_]www|[w]ww-data|[n]ginx' | grep -v root | head -1 | cut -d\  -f1`
setfacl -R -m u:${HTTPDUSER}:rwx app/tmp
setfacl -R -d -m u:${HTTPDUSER}:rwx app/tmp

Hi, Thanks for it. I am using Mac x OS.
Is it the same in terminal or different?

RobOwner (Aidellio)Commented:
Should be the same. But if you need to then just use:

chmod -R 777 app/tmp

In the patent directory. Not ideal to have those permissions but I'm guessing you're just running this locally at the moment given you're running it in your Mac?

You may need to use sudo before that chmod command
