Mag2 Permissions Problem


Mag2 Permissions Problem

Can someone please advise me on the following problem

Here is a link to a video showing what is happening

I strongly believe this is a permissions problem

In video clip one I do the following steps

1. In terminal I type in command - php bin/magento setup:upgrade
This brings up a warning message in red
(Permission denied in /var/www/html/top-property-store/vendor/colinmollenhour/cache-backend-file/File.php on line 663)

2. I refresh the page the site is still working

3. I put in command sudo php bin/magento setup:upgrade

4. I refresh the site and the site is down with a warning message


In video clip two I do the following

1. I put in command sudo php bin/magento setup:upgrade

2 I put in command sudo php bin/magento setup:di:compile

3. Go to the site then click on a link and the site is down again with the same warning

Warning: file_put_contents(/var/www/html/top-property-store/var/cache//mage-tags/mage---cc6_COMPILED_CONFIG): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /var/www/html/top-property-store/vendor/colinmollenhour/cache-backend-file/File.php on line 663
