Changing content of zip causes a permission failed


I had a working version of this project, but whenver I try to change the contents of the zip file (the jasperreport server zip file) I get the error:

/ line 57: ./js-ant: Permission denied the first time and / line 66: ./js-ant: Permission denied the second.

(the lines being "init-source-paths " and "./js-ant $i " respectively)

I want to change the file like in: so that the dockerised server can send emails.

doing that or just any change, like adding an empty .txt file or deleting a file in the zip folder will start making permission denied errors.

I'm thinking editing the zip file, somehow changes its rights, but I made sure to give all files execution rights with chmod -R 777

I've added the RUN chmod +x / from the readme, but it didn't help.

I work on windows, with version jasperreports-server-cp-6.3.0-bin of the server .

1 Answer:


Shouldn't edit the generated zip file directly. Change the jasperreports server and generate the zip file.

Instructions are provided in the following page.
