Users and mount commands in rclone Docker

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

A few questions:

  • My non-Docker users can't see the folders when they're mounted. I've passed through a folder to the rclone Docker container where I mount the remotes, and then try to view those folders outside of Docker. (When I bash into the rclone container, I can see my mounted remotes and contents, which belong to the container's 'root' user.)
  • How can I specify which user the rclone Docker container is supposed to run as in my docker-compose file (I try to stay away from Docker run commands, etc.)
  • I think I should be able to auto-mount my remotes at container start through the "command" option. Is it possible to mount multiple remotes this way?

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

Latest rclone/rclone Docker image.

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

Ubuntu Server, 64-bit / Docker (via docker-compose)

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


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

Here is my docker-compose file:

    image: rclone/rclone
    container_name: rclone
    restart: unless-stopped
      - 5572:5572
      PHP_TZ: ${TZ}
      PUID: 1000
      PGID: 1000
      - ${APPDATA}/rclone:/config/rclone
      - ${APPDATA}/rclone:/logs
      - ${CLOUD}:/data
      - /etc/passwd:/etc/passwd:ro
      - /etc/group:/etc/group:ro
      - /dev/fuse:/dev/fuse
    privileged: true
      - SYS_ADMIN
      - apparmor:unconfined

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

Not needed - storage configuration is correct as I can see the contents of the remotes in the rclone web UI.

A log from the command with the -vv flag

I've passed through the log folder to my mounted Docker volumes, but I don't see any there after running the container. Is there somewhere else I should be looking?

hello and welcome to the forum,

the config file and rclone mount command are missing from your post.....

I don't have a mount command because I'm using the default mount options in the Docker web interface.

What I'm trying to figure out is if I can run multiple mount commands in my docker-compose file before I start building them (since the web interface doesn't seem to save previously configured mounts).

does that include --allow-other?

It doesn't. I just tried it with allow other and allow root both set to yes, but had the same results.
