That sounds like you have a permissions issue on the /opt/django/CAPgraph/
part of your filesystem.

Are you running an extra "permissions" system, such as selinux, that
might be blocking the access before the normal filesystem permissions
take effect? If so, check the logs for that, and configure it to do what
you want.

(Or: if what you have right now works well enough for you, leave it as-is.)
