SOLVED: Plex mnt permissions

Postby modem7 » Wed May 17, 2017 11:56 am

Hey guys,

I installed plex manually, but can't seem to get it to scan my locally mounted folders.

DEBUG - * Scanning /mnt/samba/Movies

I've done sudo gpasswd -a plex users (and restarted the plex service) but still no go.

This is a manual installation, almost everything seems to work bar the scanning of the libraries. Thoughts?

Figured it out.

Apparently it doesn't like Greyhole in the slightest. If I go to /var/hda/files/x then I can see everything with no problems.

Bah

Marking as solved

You might want to check out Plex in the wiki.
