django: How to avoid permission error on migration

I am trying to deploy a django application on a virtual server running ubuntu 16.04.

python manage.py makemigrations


leads to the following traceback, after some models and fields have been created:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "manage.py", line 12, in <module>
execute_from_command_line(sys.argv)
File "/home/sysadmin/.virtualenvs/django/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/django/core/management/__init__.py", line 353, in execute_from_command_line
utility.execute()

with open(writer.path, "wb") as fh:
IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: u'/home/sysadmin/public_html/aegee-stuttgart.org/aegeewww/migrations/0001_initial.py'


I also tried:

sudo python manage.py makemigrations


But since I am using a virtual environment, I get the following error, since django is not installed system wide:

ImportError: No module named django.core.management


How can I fix this error? The python path is recognized correctly and django is obviously installed in the venv.

How do I have to set the permissions for the user?

Thanks!

Answer

You need grant access for user to migrations folder:

sudo chown <your_username> <path_to_migrations_folder>
