Can not create directories on mount

Post by jenssen99 » June 2nd, 2018, 7:49 am


Installed SABnzbd in Arch Linux, I have a folder mounted in /mnt/, I can access it via Linux, however if I want to created default folder (downloaded/temporary) in Arch Linux, I receive this message: Cannot create download_dir folder. I already started SABnzbd as the same user (changed default user in sabnzbd.service from sabnzbd to my own username, also changed rights on folder /opt) who has access on the mount, but it will not work within SABnzbd. I can remove/add files etc via CLI within Linux.

Am I something missing here?

Double check the whole permissions tree, can SABnzbd read the /mnt/?
Try the "Browse" button inside SAB, it will show what it can access.
