EACCES: permission denied, mkdir '/app'


I have built a simple Dockerized Vue/Vite app and connected the GitHub repo to Cloudflare Pages and, up until a few days ago, have had no trouble deploying the app.


I have made no meaningful changes, but now when I deploy, I get the error: EACCES: permission denied, mkdir '/app'.

Any thoughts on why this issue suddenly appeared and how I can resolve it?


Fixed it. I removed the .npmrc file and specify the pnpm settings


explicitly in the Dockerfile:

FROM node:22.2-alpine AS base
COPY package*.json pnpm-lock.yaml /app
RUN apk add --no-cache git \
    && corepack enable \
    && pnpm config set store-dir /app/.pnpm-store \
    && pnpm config set package-import-method copy \
    && pnpm config set package-manager-strict false

FROM base AS prod-deps
RUN pnpm fetch --prod \
    && pnpm install --prefer-offline --ignore-scripts --frozen-lockfile --prod

FROM base AS build
COPY . /app
RUN pnpm fetch \
    && pnpm install --prefer-offline --ignore-scripts --frozen-lockfile \
    && pnpm build

FROM base AS deploy
COPY --from=prod-deps /app/node_modules /app/node_modules
COPY --from=build /app/dist /app/dist
CMD ['/bin/sh', 'start_compose.sh']
