IntelliJ IDEA 14.1.1 on Mac OSX: Log path '/Users/<username>/Library/Logs/IdeaIC14' is inaccessible.

I haven't had any problem with previous versions, until now. It says:


Log path '/Users/<username>/Library/Logs/IdeaIC14' is inaccessible.

If you have modified the 'idea.log.path' property please make sure it is correct,

otherwise please re-install the IDE.

I keep both new and old versions and it seems only 14.1.1 complains about the 'idea.log.path'. Any advice?

Check folder permissions, it may be owned by admin for some reason. Try removing this folder so that IDEA creates it again.

Run disk tool with permissions fix.

Thank you for your reply, but there's no such folder. I also ran disk permissions repair and it's still the same...

What if you create it manually?

Provide stat output for the manually create folder if it still doesn't work.

You're right. The folder ~/Library/Logs/ was created by another program with owner root:staff. After fixing this, IntelliJ no longer complains.
Thank you, Serge

Try "rm -f idea.log" and its solved.

  1. [This is a case]
    When I had zero space on the hard drive, the system threw me that error. I released space and the error disappeared.
