Cache cannot access /home/<system name>/ directory in linux

Beginner, CentOS, Caché

I have a repository that I want to have in my /home/centos7/ directory, but it appears that Cache cannot access files there. Is that really the case? 

It seems like this is the case because in System Management Portal, when I try to up a new database in /home/centos7/, there aren't any directories listed, even if I add a custom one. Is Cache blocked out from this directory, and are there any others that Cache doesn't have the permission to access? 


I'm guessing it is a permissions issue. I would start by opening the directory up 

chmod 777 /home/centos

Better yet, are you starting caché as the root user? That might help considerably

Thanks to Sean O'Connor for the simple solution, just ran chmod 777 /home/centos7 and my files and directories were accessible in Management Portal. 

That was the solution! Thank you! I tried chmod 766, and that didn't work, it needs to be 777. 

Going forward, i'd make a practice of keeping the directories that you want to operate cache in owned by the cache user (cacheusr) and the group. Also, doing a ccontrol start as root will typically provide permissions that these issues won't come up. Root is especially useful later when record locking comes into play
