I'm having problems uploading indices from a snapshot. I'm running Elasticsearch version 7.16.0
path.repo: ["/home/user/Downloads/snapshot1"] in my yml file.
The Elasticsearch cluster fails to start. The error is below:
systemd-entrypoint: java.lang.IllegalStateException: Unable to access 'path.repo' (/home/crux/Downloads/snapshot1) Likely root cause: java.nio.file.AccessDeniedException: /home/user/Downloads
Permissions for the the snapshot1 directory are set recursively, with 777 permissions
and Elasticsearch:Elasticsearch as the owner/group.
I don't know what other permissions need setting which would allow my cluster to start?
