Good evening

Does anyone have a solution to this issue that Im having running rails
dbconsole.

I keep getting permission denied error

Thanks

Permission denied - /usr/lib/sqlite3 (Errno::EACCES)

The error said you can’t read /usr/lib/sqlite3. Please ensure you have
permission to read that file/folder.

You appear to be running a mac, so you might be able to use the repair
permissions function in disk utility.

Put sudo before your command. If you don’t have permission to read,
you’ll almost certainly not have permission to write.

Hey Luke,

I tried repairing permissions via disk utility but was unsuccessful, I
also
ran chmod -R 0777 /usr/lib/sqlite3 in the command line and it spits out
the same error message.

Kindest Regards

I suspect he meant sudo on the chmod command, then you should not need
it on the rails command.

Thanks Colin, this is what I meant:

sudo chmod -R 0777 /usr/lib/sqlite3

Tried this also Luke and still getting the same permission denied error
messageon /usr/lib/sqlite3 when I run rails dbconsole.
This is kind of wierd, I wonder why sudo chmod -R 0777 /usr/lib/sqlite3
didnt work!!!

On my copy of OS X /usr/lib/sqlite3 is actually a symlink to something:

eg:
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 27 25 Jul 2010 /usr/lib/sqlite3 ->
/System/Library/Tcl/sqlite3

So what you really need to do is go to where that symlink points to and
do your chmoding there.

The output of the following command will should the real location of
sqlite3
ls -l /usr/lib/sqlite3

-or-

ls -l /usr/lib | grep sqlite3

This is a pain in the arss. I ran the command ls -l /usr/lib/sqlite3 and
it spit out
total 4960
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root wheel 2534656 Mar 6 2009 libtclsqlite3.dylib
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root wheel 89 Dec 9 2007 pkgIndex.tcl

Also ran ls -l /usr/lib | grep sqlite3
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 2436160 Mar 6 2009 libsqlite3.0.dylib
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 18 Aug 30 2008 libsqlite3.dylib ->
libsqlite3.0.dylib
drwxrwxrwx 4 root wheel 136 May 27 2009 sqlite3

So i ran the sudo chmod -R 777 on each file, and still had no success
running rails db.

Do you think I should reinstall sqlite3, just guessing :slight_smile:

You can say that again :wink:

OK, you would definitely have access to the directory that is in the
error message:

Users/musdev/project_manager/sqlite3–with-sqlite3lib/ruby/1.9.1/gems/railties-3.0.3/lib/rails/commands/dbconsole.rb:94:in

`exec’: Permission denied - /usr/lib/sqlite3 (Errno::EACCES)

I have a few additional suggestions:
-make a new rails project and see if you have this same issue
-send the output of your path environment variable eg. echo $PATH
-send the contents of your database.yml
-send the output of: whereis sqlite3
-run the command at the full path of the output of the above command
-run: sqlite3

The above should give us a better indication of where the problem is
happening. I don’t see this as a rails issue, but something in your dev
environment, so reinstalling sqlite3 could have the desired effect.

Sorry for just getting back, super busy. :slight_smile:

So i created a new project and still Im running into the same issue.

This is in my echo $PATH:
/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/bin:/Users/musdev/.rvm/ge
ms/ruby-1.9.2-p136/bin:/Users/musdev/.rvm/gems/[email protected]/bin:/
Users/musdev/.rvm/rubies/ruby-1.9.2-p136/bin:/Users/musdev/.rvm/bin:/Users/
musdev/.vim/bin:/Users/musdev/.gem/ruby/1.8/bin:/Users/musdev/.gem/ruby/1.9
/bin:/usr/local/bin/:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/mysql/bin:/usr/lib:/opt/loc
al/bin:/opt/local/sbin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/X1
1/bin:/usr/local/git/bin

Why is /usr/lib on your path? From previous messages there’s an
sqlite3 file in there with it’s execute permission set to true. Since
it’s ahead of usr/bin, the shell is finding /usr/lib/sqlite3 and
trying to execute that, which presumably doesn’t work because it’s not
an executable.

My database.yml file contains:

SQLite version 3.x

gem install sqlite3-ruby (not necessary on OS X Leopard)

development:
adapter: sqlite3
database: db/development.sqlite3
pool: 5
timeout: 5000

Warning: The database defined as “test” will be erased and

re-generated from your development database when you run “rake”.

Do not set this db to the same as development or production.

test:
adapter: sqlite3
database: db/test.sqlite3
pool: 5
timeout: 5000

production:
adapter: sqlite3
database: db/production.sqlite3
pool: 5
timeout: 5000

whereis sqlite3 is in /usr/bin/sqlite3

Running sqlite3 in usr/bin/sqlite3 worked just fine.
