    I’m trying to run the sandbox tutorials and download the nyse and baseball data. I click ‘upload’, ‘files’, ‘select files’, then when I select my file to upload, nothing happens. Text box says “uploading to: /user/hue. I noticed on the example, the directory is /user/sandbox, but I don’t have a sandbox path. When I try to edit my path to /user/sandbox, I get the following error message: Cannot access: /user/sandbox. Note: you are a Hue admin but not a HDFS superuser (which is “hdfs”).
    Please advise.

    Hi Mark,

    I’m glad you are all up and running now!

    Cen – when you SSH as root you can just su to HDFS without a password – so I don’t really understand what you are asking. You can even change it if you need to.

    Thanks

    Never mind. I saw some other posts about an ie10 problem. I’m using firefox now and it’s working fine.

    Hi Mark,

    In the sandbox can you check the directory permissions on /user/hue ?

    The file should be uploaded here by default (if you are logged in as hue) as this is your home HDFS directory.
    As the hue user is a HUE admin but it isn’t in the HDFS superuser (which is hdfs on the Linux system) then you are not permitted to do this. You can ssh into the sandbox and change it but you should be able to upload the file to /user/hue.

    What browser are you using?

    Thanks

    Dave
