This error message appear until 22.04 since you exporting the configuration and it is an inssuficiency of privilege.

How to solve the problem

Solution Centos/RedHat

  • Check permissions:
ll /etc/centreon-engine/

ll /etc/centreon-broker/


  • As you can see apache isn’t the owner

Here is the commands to solve:

chown apache:apache /etc/centreon-engine/*

chown apache:apache /etc/centreon-broker/*

For Debian it’s www-data, not Apache

su - apache -s /bin/bash -c umask


  • If the issue isn’t solved, check the permissions here:
ll -R /var/cache/centreon/config/

ll -R /var/cache/centreon/symfony

Apache should be the owner aswell.
