Any idea what might be the cause for this?

$ dokku postgres:link dbname appname
/var/lib/dokku/plugins/available/docker-options/functions: line 82: /home/dokku/appname/DOCKER_OPTIONS_DEPLOY: Permission denied

I'm using Dokku 0.7.0

/home/dokku/appname/DOCKER_OPTIONS_DEPLOY was root:root for some reason. A simple chown fixed it. It's obviously unrelated to dokku-postgres. Sorry!

I also ran into this when trying to link a Redis image to my app. To be specific, the line that will fix it is:

chown dokku:dokku /home/dokku/appname/DOCKER_OPTIONS_DEPLOY

Replace appname in there with the name of your app.
