I´m trying to upload geoTIFF files to GeoNode 2.6.3, installed in Ubuntu 16.04. When I try I get this error:

Could not save the layer layer_name, there was an upload error: Error while storing uploaded file::Unable to create /usr/share/geoserver/data/data/geonode/layer_name

It used to work in GeoNode 2.4, and the geoTIFF files I´m uploading are the same ones I had in 2.4 version. I tried the upload from the web portal interface and from the QGis plugin "Geoserver-explorer". Had same error in both cases. What could be the problem?

edit: add parts of geoserver.log

  • Did you see the geoserver log for more details about this error?

I solved it. It was a misconfiguration in the GeoNode REST role service. This link helped me find the error
