Passbolt commands cannot be executed as root

Hey All,

I followed each step of and am having issues finishing up the installation.

When trying to create my first passbolt user i get:

Passbolt commands cannot be executed as root.

The command should be executed with the same user as your web server.
By instance : su -s /bin/bash -c "/var/www/passbolt/app/Console/cake COMMAND" HTTP_USER
HTTP_USER can differ regarding your environment : www-data, nginx, http

If i try to run a healthcheck I get the same thing.

I am having the same problem when I try to minor update.

Anyone has a recommended solution?

what user if your nginx or webserver running as ?
sudo as that user and run your backup :slight_smile:

(you could possibly also try adding your su user to the web group)
