> Cordova Installer Fails
> -----------------------
>                 Key: CB-270
>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Callback
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: iOS
>         Environment: Mac OS X
>            Reporter: Shazron Abdullah
>            Assignee: Shazron Abdullah
>              Labels: installer
> Show the Installer Log and report an issue in the Google Groups or Cordova Issue Tracker
(JIRA here).
> *How:*
> When the installer is launched, Apple-L to show the install log, then select "Show All
Logs" from the drop-down list. Run through the installation until you get the error (don't
close the installer down yet). Copy and Paste the log.
> *Permissions Issues*
> A previous installer (Cocos2D as an example that does this) installs their own templates
using the Root user, causing permissions issues for the PhoneGap installer, which does not
need root privileges to install.
> Substitute [USERNAME] below for the name of your home account.
> *The log might show this:*
> {code}
> /preinstall: mkdir: /Users/[USERNAME]/Library/Developer/Xcode/Templates/Project Templates:
Permission denied
> {code}
> *In Terminal, if you do:*
> {code}
> ls -la "/Users/[USERNAME]/Library/Developer/Xcode/" and go to the row with Templates
> {code}
> *It would show for example:*
> {code}
> drwxr-xr-x 12 root staff 408 3 May 00:18 Templates
> {code}
> That's the problem, the owner of the folder is root. You'll have to reclaim this for
your current user.
> *How:*
> {code}
> sudo chown [USERNAME] "/Users/[USERNAME]/Library/Developer/Xcode/Templates"
> {code}
> *Run the installer again, and it should work this time.*
