Copying tutor gives permission denied

Hi,

I was following this from the docs: Making backups and migrating data — Tutor documentation

On the 3rd step, when I run
rsync -avr "$(tutor config printroot)/" username@server2:/tmp/tutor/

I get permission denied on some files:

I did do tutor local stop before copying. Is this a problem or can I proceed without those files?

Hi! As indicated by the banner at the top :point_up: this forum is no longer monitored. It is kept open for reference purposes only. You are strongly encouraged to move your question on the official Open edX forum: https://discuss.openedx.org/

Thanks!

To resolve your issue, run rsync with sudo. This is a mistake in the documentation that will be fixed in the next release.
