When you start skedler and if you see the following error in console or in skedler log (skedler.log):

Error: spawn EACCES

    at exports._errnoException (util.js:870:11)

    at ChildProcess.spawn (internal/child_process.js:298:11)

    throw errnoException(err, 'spawn');

Do the following to resolve this issue:

  • Give executable permission to skedler_home directory.

$> sudo chmod -R 765 skedler_home

$> ls -l  skedler_home

Expected behavior of the above command ls: Permissions field containing execute flag: -rwxr-xr-x
