Click the Open Logs button or go to Output > Julia Language Server. You should see a message like this, among others:

Please make sure you have permissions to write to the LS depot path at

Your current account needs to have read/write access to the indicated directory. Also make sure that it isn't on a NFS volume or similar, as that may cause issues.
