User / Group Identifiers
When using volumes ( flags) permissions issues can arise between the host OS and the container, we avoid this issue by allowing you to specify the user and group .
Ensure any volume directories on the host are owned by the same user you specify and any permissions issues will vanish like magic.
In this instance and , to find yours use as below:
Thank you again for taking the time out to reply. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it.
I just spent the last hour googling pieces of your post. I think sometimes the people that are experts at this have a hard time connecting to the weekend warriors like myself because they don't understand how little we understand about this area. I also think that's why you see so many people opening the permissions - they don't fully understand what they are doing and the guides tend to skimp on information in this area and they don't want to be admonished here for opening something up that they did not need to.
Anyway, at a high level I completely get what you are saying. In the guides I set up PUID and PGID to be 1000 and things went swimmingly. Until they weren't, which is now. I did as the guides said and everything was great until last week.
so this is the state of my AppData folder where I keep all of my docker configs. At this point in time none of my containers are operating normally. Some are working but I can't edit them ("can't find container information" error in portainer). Others have the same error AND they don't start. From doing my research I can see that for many of these "root" is the owner and the group users is also listed. Now what? I completely get that if I type "ID 1000" I should see what you showed me. But how do I get there? Again, I set them in docker-compose the way you described.
Based on what I said in the previous paragraph doesn't it seem like this is more than just a permissions issue in the individual folders? I can't find any similarities between the errors I am getting and the folders with similar permissions.
Thanks to all who are helping!
