I can’t be the first person to run in to this problem
Quickbox user ID called Admin
Plex media folder is located /home/admin/media
Plex user (default install) can see the folder, but not make any changes (delete)
I have a few choices.
CHMOD the permissions to allow everybody to read write, this means any new content needs to get the permissions changed. An alias or crontab would work, but yuck!
Run the Plex app as admin - fixes the permission problem, but adds additional problems with Plex library permissions and possible problems with updates.
Third option is to run Plex as root. Fixes the permissions problems, but I’m pretty sure I’m not supposed to be doing that.
I’m currently using answer 3, but there must be another way.
I was wondering if groups are the answer. How do I make a group that Plex and I can both write files in my home directory ? Has anybody encountered this before?
