Actual behavior permission denided

enter image description here After entering the code in the on my MAC I got a permission denied answer. What is the reason why? MDB CLI was recommended for the installation of MDB5 on a external 3rd party Web Server.

It looks like your operating system denies permission. Try changing the npm's default directory permission:

sudo chown -R $(whoami) /usr/local/{lib/node_modules,bin,share}

And then run the npm install mdb-cli -g command again.
