Access rights problem with Plex in Docker

  • Hi there,

    I just tried to run Plex in Docker. Unfortunately I get the following problem:
    "Starting Plex Media Server.
    PMS: failure detected. Read/write access is required for path: /config/Library/Application Support/Plex Media Server"

    I entered the dockeruser PUID and GPID in the starting parameters. I even set access rights via ACL to read/write for anyone. But to no avail, any ideas where my mistake lies?


  • That's not the directory you need to check. It's:

    /Library/Application Support/Plex Media Server

    Google is your friend and Bob's your uncle!

    OMV AMD64 5.x on ASRock Rack C2550D4I C0 Stepping - 16GB ECC - Silverstone DS380 + Silverstone DS380 DAS Box.

  • Thanks, it seems to be working now. I noticed that there was a mix-up with upper and lower cas C in config. (Even though the path entered in the parameters seid "Config", the error log said "config". I changed the folder and share name to "config" and also changed the parameter to lower case. Now it seems to work.
    I have another issue now when accessing via browser:
    "This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below."
    But I think this was described in a tutorial video here, I will check.

    Ah, that was rather easy - did not have the /web in
    With my previous installation this was not required
