Getting Access Denied error

shiny

#1

I am trying out shiny pro trail version on my private cloud and I am facing the following issue. Can someone help?

I want to understand if any shiny files will be created on the server to make sure I provide proper permissions before spinning up docker container.

[INFO] shiny-server - Using config file "/etc/shiny-server/shiny-server.conf"
[INFO] shiny-server - Creating user-specific config directory at /.shiny-server

I have figured out how to resolve the issue. the folder is getting created on current work directory. I changed and it got resolved.

Now, I am facing below issue

[ERROR] shiny-server - Error loading config: The user 'undefined' does not have permissions to run applications as one of the users in 'shiny'. Please restart shiny-server as one of the users in  'shiny'. (/etc/shiny-server/shiny-server.conf:2:1)
