Plex not reading Directories & Files

Hey Everyone!

Newbie here, I just had QuickBox installed yesterday and after many (many) attempts, plex started and I was ecstatic. However, I added videos to /home/customer/Movies & /home/customer/TV Shows and when I try to add them to the plex library, Plex isn’t able to see the directories.

I added plex as a user to ‘customer’
Adding user 'plex' to group 'customer' ... Adding user 'plex' to group 'customer' Done.

I figured this would fix the behavior I’m seeing, but unfortunately it still isn’t working.

Any ideas?


User acc is gone?

Hey there @phatedone!

Could you attempt the following and see if this sets you up:

username=USERNAMEHERE!!!
usermod -a -G ${username} plex
chown ${username}:plex /home/${username}
chmod 750 /home/${username}
setfacl -m g:${username}:rwx /home/${username}
