Error Unable to save file: permision denied - My Solution


#1

Cheers all, I wanted to edit a PHP file from external user. While saving Atom gave me error: Unable to save file: permision denied ‘…/file path/…’ .

I am using Windows 10, Atom 1.22.1 x64

There were similar issues, but none helped me out.

The solution was quite easy in my case. I am not using english windows, so I hope my translation would match
I opened file manager, right clicked the file, in the properties i went to attributes unchecked the “Only for reading” property.

After this Atom can save the file after editing.

i have to add, that the file i tried to edit was on my disk in my PC…
