Hi Peter,
Thanks, yes I was unsure whether to rename the thread or whether that would be frowned upon.

It does appear to be something to do with the file permissions, I'm trying to figure it out.

Thanks again,

@Niko: The OP was now asking about CentOS (within a thead, about MS-Windows, yes).

I don't know about Jetty (bundled or installed indepdendently) but on Unixoids it's merely a question of file permissions, i.e.:
If the user your container runs as does not have permissions to create a directory (or write to it) then give it those permissions.

For comparison/inspiration: Here's an example for IDPv3 with Tomact8 on Debian 8 -- so clearly *not* directly applicable to your case -- where Tomcat runs as non-root:
That's just for the IDP to function, but it seems you'll need to take care of Jetty's "tmp" directory, too, in a simiar way.
