    I installed Publii on my new Macbook Pro M1 because my old Mac died. When I start Publii on the new machine I get:

    Uncaught Exception:
    Error: EACCES: permission denied, mkdir '/Users/don19'
    at Object.mkdirSync (fs.js:925:3)
    at mkdirsSync (/Applications/Publii.app/Contents/Resources/app.asar/node_modules/fs-extra/lib/mkdirs/mkdirs-sync.js:31:9)

    The User don19 doesn’t exist any more on the new Mac. Is there any way I can just open Publii? I’m happy to reconstruct the site if needed. I realize it would have been better to have had the site root in Dropbox as you advise, but I don’t understand why a fresh install on a new computer still looks in the old root location. I did migrate the apps from an existing iCloud account but deleted Publii and reinstalled.

    All seems to be working now. Today Publii opened without the above error dialog, asking me to create a new site. I created a site with the same name as before and then copied the old files into Documents/Publii/site_name. After quitting and restarting Publii everything worked as before, the settings were all restored.

    Hi,

    Thank you for your feedback.
    I will add more friendly message for such cases in v.0.39.0.
