[docker Course 5-11] EACCESS permission denied

Hello there ,

I’m working on WSL2 with an Ubuntu-20.04 distro

During this lesson, when mosh introduces the path to volumes with the $(pwd) path (1.58min) and I try to start a new container, if I look at the logs, it says the following:

react-app@0.1.0 start /app
react-scripts start

:information_source: 「wds」: Project is running at
:information_source: 「wds」: webpack output is served from
:information_source: 「wds」: Content not from webpack is served from /app/public
:information_source: 「wds」: 404s will fallback to /
Starting the development server…

Failed to compile.

EACCES: permission denied, open ‘/app/node_modules/.cache/.eslintcache’

can anyone give me some pointers ?

After looking around for a bit, it seems to be a question of privilege access for the app user, but I’m still not very confortable with tinkering with that ^^

thanks a lot for your help, whoever you are !


Try adding this “somewhere”: chown -R app /app
That should make the user “app” owner of the directory.
I really wonder how this worked for Mosh and does not work for us. And why he does not care to fix it.
