I am trying to deploy Firebase hosting of my web app.

At the command line, when I type firebase deploy, I get the following error.

Note: firebase deploy is just one example. The same error occurs for all firebase commands. (e.g., firebase --help, firebase -v, firebase login, firebase logout, etc.)


/usr/local/lib/node_modules/firebase-tools/node_modules/configstore/index.js:53 throw err; ^

Error: EACCES: permission denied, open '/Users/mowzer/.config/configstore/update-notifier-firebase-tools.json' You don't have access to this file.

Everything I have tried so far (including every CLI firebase instruction) rejects me for lack of access.

What can I do? What should I try?

(I am on a Mac OSX Yosemite v10.10.5 and firebase-tools v3.0.3)

Edit: When I do sudo firebase deploy, I get the following error.

Error: The entered credentials were incorrect.

I tried the following solution.

I tried to delete problem files then reinstall firebase-tools.
cd .config/configstore
# Delete problematic files
rm firebase-tools.json
override rw-------  root/staff for firebase-tools.json? y
rm update-notifier-firebase-tools.json
override rw-------  root/staff for update-notifier-firebase-tools.json? y
# Reinstall firebase-tools
sudo npm install -g firebase-tools


cd path/to/directory
cd firebase deploy

Now this file generates the error:


cd /usr/local/lib/node_modules/firebase-tools/node_modules/configstore

This looks like an issue with the permissions of modules you have npm installed. This is something lots of developers run into, and npm actually has some documentation on how to resolve it. Once you go through that, try again (you may need to re-install firebase-tools) and things should work.
