Installation on Linode failed at step two


Hi there! I was successful at using Easy Engine on a Digital Ocean droplet and am now trying it on Linode. First step seemed to go ok, but I got a permission error on step two (ee stack install):

-bash: /usr/local/sbin/ee: Permission denied

My current user account has full access, so that’s a bit odd. Any ideas?


Hello Peter,

Its seems like you don’t have a sudo/root user privilege.

Please use following command

sudo ee stack install  



Am pretty new to doing things by command line but that should have been obvious.

Thanks very much!
