Rclone + MergerFS and Plex

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

My plex server on my Dedi can't open any mount folders. I'm using Rclone and MergerFS. It just appears to show the folder as a grayed out file. I followed a guide by UltraSeedBox on the setup.

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

rclone v1.55.1

  • os/type: linux
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.16.3
  • go/linking: static
  • go/tags: none

Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (The Focal Fossa), 64 bits

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

Google Drive.

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

My mount command is

  --allow-other \
  --allow-root \
  --config /home/myth/.config/rclone/rclone.conf \
  --use-mmap \
  --dir-cache-time 1000h \
  --poll-interval=15s \
  --vfs-cache-mode writes \
  --tpslimit 10```

type = drive
scope = drive
token = XXX
team_drive = YYY
root_folder_id =

#### A log from the command with the `-vv` flag  

-vv: command not found

I was actually able to get my mount folder to work by changing my mount command, plex now recognises files inside that folder. However, my MergerFS folder still works via FTP yet Plex doesn't recognise any files inside.

Turns out it was a basic permission issue. I thought I had the permissions correct as I set them using SSH, but when I connected via VNC the permissions weren't set.
