Pytesseract exe is in home directory but I get [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/home/

I am trying to use Pytesseract with my django project. I have put the tessract.exe into the directory:


However I get the error:

PermissionError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/home/shaanluthra/Swift-Summarizer/api/tesseract-OCR/tesseract.exe'

I have installed all the dependencies for pytesseract but am not sure why my permission is being denied for /home/

exe is a windows file, PythonAnywhere runs on a linux system
