I'm using Areca version 7.2.8 on a multi-user LTSP Ubuntu setup. So multiple users are working at the same time on the server. They all installed areca locally in their own home folder. They did a full back-up one day. Some days later they wanted to check their back-up and have a look at their logical view. But only for one person this logical view was visible, for the others, the window was blank.
I looked at the log and there was some Java io Exception, concerning /tmp/areca/etc... I appears that the first person made that areca directory, while the others just have r-x rights. So they couldn't write in that directory.
Workaround: I changed the rights of /tmp/areca so that the 'group' and 'others' have full rights as well (namely rwx). I don't know of the consequences of this workaround, but it seemed to work. So they all had their logical view again.
Real solution: maybe instead of /tmp/areca/... /tmp/dir per user/areca??
