I have a trouble with my Magento 2 - 500 page error in front and backend.

Error log:

2016/05/29 21:28:00 [error] 2681#2681: *1 FastCGI sent in stderr: "PHP message: PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught Zend_Cache_Exception: cache_dir "/var/www/html/var/page_cache" is not writable in /var/www/html/vendor/magento/zendframework1/library/Zend/Cache.php:209

My Server Centos 7
Nginx 1.10
Mysql 5.6

I have already changed 777 page_cache directory.

Can anyone help me to solve this problem?


Try letting the folder have read and write permission (i.e.: changing the permission to 777) to var directory, this worked for me for Magento 2.1.

Ensure you are using recursive option.

chmod -Rf 777 <magento install directory>/var/

Please run the following command that works for me.

sudo chmod -R 777 page_cache
