we are attempting to install an R package on the shiny server
install.packages('ggplot2'). We have a user, but cannot remember the password, so created a new user with same credentials. When I attempt to install the package, i get the following message.

Installing package into ‘/usr/lib64/R/library’
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
Warning in install.packages("ggplot2") :
'lib = "/usr/lib64/R/library"' is not writable
Would you like to use a personal library instead? (y/n)
Is this because it is a new user and needs to build its own library? will this be available to all usres who access the site if I say "yes"?
