Playlist "elsewhere"

ERROR 2022-11-22 22:17:11,835 [1:M3UBackend-3] mopidy.m3u.playlists
Error creating playlist ‘mmwtest’: Permission denied
ERROR 2022-11-22 22:17:11,838 [1:M3UBackend-3] mopidy.m3u.playlists
Error creating playlist ‘mmwtest’: Permission denied

I think I have a permissions error, but I’m never sure when it comes to these, especially when the item is running from a docker, but the files are out on a server…

I’m running Docker Hub mopidy-multiroom snapcast setup using a docker stack dockerfiles/docker-compose.yml at master · hamishfagg/dockerfiles · GitHub

IT works! But, I want to save and edit playlists from a share on a machine with my music. When I configure mopidy.conf to point to that location /media/music/Playlists/music, I get the permission denied error shown at the top.

The perms look like this in that directory:
-rwxrwxr-x+ 1 root users 9334 Dec 18 2020 garage.xsp
-rwxrwxr-x+ 1 root users 4246 Oct 3 2021 ‘a good mix.xsp’
-rwxrwxr-x+ 1 root users 1102 Oct 12 2021 ‘dads choice network.xsp’
-rwxrwxr-x+ 1 root users 282 Oct 15 2021 test.xsp
-rwxrwxr-x+ 1 root users 12164 Nov 26 2021 ‘The Slip East Coast 2021.m3u’

The music files are the same, root, users, -rwxrwxr-x+

When I try to write a playlist in the default location from the docker /appdata/dockerfiles/mopidy-multiroom/mopidydata/m3u, the perms look like this:

-rw------- 1 mark poweruser 427 Oct 17 15:43 test_playlist.m3u8
-rw------- 1 mark poweruser 153 Nov 12 13:23 Garage.m3u8
-rw------- 1 mark poweruser 60964 Nov 12 13:29 a_and_b.m3u8
-rw------- 1 mark poweruser 163 Nov 22 16:10 mmwtest.m3u8

Well, I took ownership as mark of all things in my music folders and subfolders, now it works. eh. I hate doing that, it seem so risky and ‘god mode’ like to brute force without understanding why it’s like it is… I suppose my music folders got owned by root during some library relocation or repair as I got the server going. whatever. maybe it helps the next guy that tries to set up this docker combo
