Fix Docker Error: GitHub Actions Entrypoint Executable Error

How to fix a Docker error for a Github Actions entrypoint executable error.



Error response from daemon: OCI runtime create failed: container_linux.go:348: starting container process caused "exec: \"/\": permission denied": unknown


If you're using GitHub Actions, you'll get this when you've forgotten to set the as an executable. You can fix this error by running chmod +x </path/to/> (replacing </path/to> with the directory path from the process root) and committing it.

When Have I see this?

When I'm creating a GitHub Action and I forget to set the as an executable, I'll see this error when the Actions container runs.
