It sounds like the file ownership got messed up.
Depending on how comfortable you are with using the terminal I would
use the following to change the ownership
chown <username> <path-to-file/file.ext>
For example the file is in your db sub folder of your Documents
folder the path is /home/username/Documents/db. The username is your
log on name for Ubuntu.
chmod 644 <path-to-file/file.ext>
depending on your preferences. The above will give read/write
permission to the owner, read permission to anyone in your group, and
read permission to the world (world being anyone on the same machine as
you). Pretty standard permissions but you may want to deny all
permission to group and world in which case you'd use 600 instead of
644. I have no idea what the application requires in terms of
permissions, this is just a standard unix/Linux command.
