## Magento Path trying to write recurssively

When I use commands like

bin/magento module:enable

Magento tries to write to the wrong path within itself

/var/www/magento2/app/etc/var/www/magento2/app/etc/

as if it did not know where the base directory was

For example

[Magento\Framework\Exception\FileSystemException]
The path ".:///var/www/magento2/app/etc/var/www/magento2/app/etc/" is not writable

There must be a way to edit this? I have tried

bin/magento module:enable --magento-init-params "MAGE_MODE=developer&MAGE_DIRS[base][path]=/var/www/magento2" <module name>

but get the same error

Looks like a bug, I have noticed it too.

I recommend to report it in the issue tracker: https://github.com/magento/magento2/issues

## Re: Magento Path trying to write recurssively

Ok I have fixed this issue.

This was a permissions error the command needed to be run on sudo

Unfortunately, the error message was a bit cryptic in this regard so it had me stumped for a while

## Re: Magento Path trying to write recurssively

I have the same problem, but it is on content->configuration. If it is a file permission problem, what file should I check?
