Plex not recognised Mount on Debian Server

The Command I currently use is - rclone mount gcrypt: /home/tom/GDrive

Everything works on Windows but on my Server PLEX doesn’t load anything.

Does the Plex user have access to see those files? What’s your mount command?

rclone mount gcrypt: /home/tom/GDrive

What do you mean does the user have access? I’m trying to add the Library

You need to add allow-other.

      --allow-other                        Allow access to other users.

Its saying I need to edit the fuse.conf file. But what do I edit?

Make your /etc/fuse.conf look like this.

By default it is commented out:

felix@gemini:~$ cat /etc/fuse.conf
# /etc/fuse.conf - Configuration file for Filesystem in Userspace (FUSE)

# Set the maximum number of FUSE mounts allowed to non-root users.
# The default is 1000.
#mount_max = 1000

# Allow non-root users to specify the allow_other or allow_root mount options.

Yes its working! Thank you very much

Actually I’m still having Issues. PLEX now scans the media but still doesn’t play it. Something is wrong with my Permissions.

If you really don’t care who can see the media on the server, you can add:

--umask 000

That will mount it with rw for everyone.

Sorry for late reply. I would try this but I’m completely fucked up my Server and can’t connect to SSH. I have blocked port 22 apparently.

Oh that stinks!

Do you have a way to start a console on it and maybe get it working again?

I’m in rescue mode but don’t have a clue what I am doing.

If it is a VPS, most providers will give you console access that you can use to just unblock ssh.

Its a Server from Seedhost. I asked them about it and they said they can’t help because its self managed.

I fixed the Server but --umask 000 doesn’t work. It just brings up all the options.

What’s your full command line that you are trying?

rclone version

shows what version?

Never mind got everything to work for now with this command -

rclone mount --allow-other --allow-non-empty gcrypt: /home/tom/GDrive

Oh right, I am sorry as I assumed you had that and should have asked. Happy you figured it out!

Command is not working now. It worked for about a day but now I’m getting the error “Please check the permissions for this file” when trying to play on PLEX.

If you do a “ls -al” on the files that will show the permissions on the file.

You probably need to add the umask to your mount of the permissions are wrong.
