When I try to create a shipping label in Magento Commmunity Edition 1.9, I'm facing a permissions error in system.log:
Warning: imagepng(/var/folders/f3/pd3xtxvd0y390_qjv7pryv6m0000gn/T/shipping_labels_11721274915437009a686f81412890778.png): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/my_site/app/code/core/Mage/Adminhtml/controllers/Sales/Order/ShipmentController.php on line 732
I am also faced with the following error in exceptions.log:
exception 'Zend_Pdf_Exception' with message 'Cannot create image resource. File not found.' in /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/my_site/lib/Zend/Pdf/Resource/ImageFactory.php:38
Stack trace: #0 /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/fswings/lib/Zend/Pdf/Image.php(124): Zend_Pdf_Resource_ImageFactory::factory('/var/folders/f3...')
As well as the less informative error on the front-end:
An error occurred while creating shipping label.
I've set my permissions site-wide (while developing) to 755 for folders and 644 for files. I tried several things to see if this is indeed a permissions issue:
- I've temporarily set permissions on ShipmentController.php to 777
- I've temporarily set permissions recursively on the var folder to 777
- When that didn't work, I tried setting permissions recursively on the whole project file to 777
- I've tried to disable and enable the cache, as well as flushing it
My theory is the pdf generator Zend uses is unable to write to var, as I do not see a var/folders directory.
Anyone else have this issue?
