PLEX not reading files, whats the group and permissions for it?

Post by storms »

hey guys, great project.
i'm having problems with my PLEX, it doesnt want to read the files on the Videos folder at all!
i think its a permissions problems, wondering what user:group the dietpi-software assigned to the PLEX installation, tried looking for it but couldnt find it.

edit: permissions problems ON the files in the /mnt/dietpi_userdata/Videos/ files
root:root isnt working either, plex was "thinking" for about 1hour and it came up with nothing.

Code: Select all

ls -lah
dietpi@core:/mnt/dietpi_userdata/Video$ ls -lah
total 5.8G
drwxrwxr-x 10 dietpi dietpi 1.0K May 13 21:28 .
drwxrwxr-x  8 dietpi dietpi 1.0K May 13 10:26 ..

Please do: usermod -a -G dietpi plex

This will be applied with the just released v6.24 (hotfix) as well.
