As usual, try disabling selinux if it’s active. If that helps, investigate audit log..

I then created the folder /main/ inside that, this is the folder I deleted and on restart nginx created. Which makes me think that there is no permission problem but instead some other underlying problem that is throwing this false error. The cache gzip files are being made and the folder path for 2:2:2 is being created.
