Borg Backup over SSH Help

Borg Backup over SSH Help:


I am trying to get borg setup to backup over ssh. The first step is just running a backup and see if it works, automation comes after.

So I run this in the terminal:

borg create ssh:// ~/Documents

It asks for my SSH passphrase and then provides this output. That isn’t the entire thing, but you can see there it has permission issues on a lock.exclusive file.

I’m not sure what that is, or how or what to change the permissions to for that. Since this is happening over SSH, not sure how to allow myself permission in this situation.
