Rstudio Server permission denied writing to /var/run/shiny-server??

I testing out different logins, I get problems with Rstudio server not loading and saying "error occurred during transmission." I tried the solutions mentioned in this link:

Resetting a user's state on RStudio Server

But that was not the problem at all. The service journal showed the problem was a permission denied on the /var/run/rstudio-server folder:

Jun 04 12:03:09 rserver[14658]: ERROR system error 13 (Permission denied) [path: /var/run/rstudio-server/rstudio-rsession/mike-d, user-id: 1005, st>

So to get it to work I have to change it so that the currently logged in user is the owner of that folder, which is ridiculous. In a proper install of rstudio server (open source), who should be the owner of the /var/run/rstudio-server folder and what user should be set in the /etc/rstudio/rserver.conf file. I didn't have any problems like this on my old server; must have been beginner's luck!
