How to change Octoprint file system to read /write


I just installed a new version of octoprint (1.9.2) and I need to install some files for my touch screen, however the file system is read only.

Using "sudo chmod" commands don't appear to work.

How can I unlock the file system, to allow changes, please?

I can navigate easily through Linux / Raspian, etc , just need to know where to make the changes.

Thanks in advance for your help.

If the filesystem has switched itself to read-only mode then it is sometimes indicative of a dying SD card.

The filesystem should not be read-only out of the box - this would prevent any OctoPrint data from being saved. If you reboot it prompts you to re-set it up?
