Your problem
My problem is : I want to update Mautic from 3.1.2 to 3.2 and I get the following error.

Steps I have tried to fix the problem : -

Looks like you don’t have enough permissions to write in /opt/bitnami/apps/mautic/htdocs/ or to override /opt/bitnami/apps/mautic/htdocs/.htaccess

It could depend on many factors, check folder’s owner and see your own user permissions.

I don’t know the Bitnami setup, maybe they prevent you to override .htaccess?


I just managed to update Mautic to 3.2.1

Previously it was updated by a programmer, so I opened the history to see how he did it.

The commands is as follows:

sudo su -
cd /opt/bitnami/apps/mautic/htdocs
php bin/console mautic:update:apply
php bin/console mautic:update:apply --finish

I really don’t know what the problem is and why these commands work.

If anyone has an explanation or a solution to make it work with normal commands again, I appreciate it.

Thank you very much for your help.
