[Solved] Plone 5.2.4 Failed to create virtual environment for /usr/bin/python3.8

Dear All,

I just tried to install latest Plone 5.2.4 (with Python 3.8 on my server) using the unified installer and I get this error message:

Failed to create virtual environment for /usr/bin/python3.8

By looking at the install.log I saw there was a unix rights issue:

Error: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/srv/www/htdocs/zinstance'

Then I tried to manually create the floder and gave it the good rights:

mkdir /srv/www/htdocs/zinstance
chown plone_buildout.plone_group /srv/www/htdocs/zinstance

But then, I had a new error message:

Instance target /srv/www/htdocs/zinstance already exists; aborting install.

Do you have any tips to resolve that?

Thanks by advance

I solved that issue by creating a subfolder with the good rights:

mkdir /srv/www/htdocs/plone
chown plone_buildout.plone_group /srv/www/htdocs/plone
./install.sh --target=/srv/www/htdocs/Plone/ standalone
