7 – Error copying file. Is there a permissions issue?

I have a process that fetches a file, then moves it (overwriting if already exists). The copy part fails, and I cannot determine why.

Here is some PHP I am using to reproduce the issue I am seeing (with output functions from Devel module):

$source = 'temporary://someFile';
$destination = 'public://profile_pictures/someFile.jpg';

# Get name of Linux user running this
$username = posix_getpwuid(posix_geteuid())('name');
dpm($username);   # nginx

dvm(file_exists($source));       # TRUE
dvm(file_exists($destination));  # TRUE

# File permissions
dpm(substr(sprintf('%o', fileperms($source)), -4));       # 0600
dpm(substr(sprintf('%o', fileperms($destination)), -4));  # 0644

# Try Drupal's copy
$r = file_unmanaged_copy($source, $destination, FILE_EXISTS_REPLACE);
dvm($r);  # FALSE

# Try PHP copy that Drupal uses internally, to see the error
dvm(copy($destination, $source));  # TRUE    ( Copy backwards works... )
dvm(copy($source, $destination));  # FALSE   ( But this doesn't work.  )

The last line gives the following error:

Warning: copy(public://profile_pictures/someFile.jpg): failed to open stream: “DrupalPublicStreamWrapper::stream_open”

So copying backwards works, but it won’t copy from temporary:// to profile_pictures. Also, if I delete public://profile_pictures/someFile.jpg first, then it works.

Permissions of files and folders:

drwxrwx--- www-data www-data temporary://
-rw------- nginx    nginx    temporary://someFile
drwxrwxr-x www-data www-data public://profile_pictures
-rw-rw-r-- nginx    nginx    public://profile_pictures/someFile.jpg

The temporary directory is a sub-folder of public://. The nginx user is in the www-data group.

Is this a permissions issue? Looking at Drupal’s requirements, I don’t see what I am doing wrong.

server – Critical Issue – Apache2 Errors Failed to Start Ubuntu 20.04.LTS

I have been trying to install Magento 2.4.4 on a localhost server that is for testing purposes and have the Magento 2.4.2 already unzipped in the Magento2.4 folder and the Apache page shows up in the web browser but the localhost/magento2.4 does not.

Here is the error I am getting;

Any help is appreciated

How to solve the issue of my query results of in my sheet?


I have this sheet that I enter all data of patients in (Data_Entry) tab and I want these data to be sorted by Room number and bed number in the form of 00-00. For example Room 4 bed2 (4-2) and so on. I added a helper column L that modify the room/bed number in a way I remove the “-” and I multiply by 10 if the number entered has no “-” because some rooms are only one bedded room. Then I query all the data in All_patients Tab to be sorted first by unit(Column I), then by ward(Column B), then by modified Room&Bed (helper Column L). Because sorting by Column C (actual numbers like 4-3) doesn’t result in correct ascending numbers.

But I had a problem at the results in All_Patients tab that the original helper column L(Data_Entry) which is Column K in the results tab(All_Patients) doesn’t show all the values of the numbers.So, that resulted in an incorrect ascending order by room& bed number.

=ArrayFormula(IFs(REGEXMATCH(C5:C, "-"), SUBSTITUTE(C5:C,"-",""), C5:C<>"-",C5:C*10)) this formula is in L5 of (Data_ENtry)tab that modifies the room/bed numbers in actual numbers that can be sorted if needed.

=query(Data_Entry!B5:L,"select B,C,D,E,H,F,G,K,I,L where F is not null AND B<>'Ward' order by I,B,L",0) this formula is in B5 of (All_Patients) tab that brings all entry data and sort them by unit,ward,room.

Probably there is a smarter way of sorting room/bed number
