Trying to setup permissions for the plugins sickbeard / couchpotato.

I’ve read almost every thread google / the forums have but haven’t really found a solution yet.
I’m assuming it’s the data here: (Jail name)/usr/pbi/xxxxxxxxxx
I tried:

chown -R guest:guest /usr/pbi/sickbeard-amd64/*  
chown -R guest:guest /usr/pbi/couchpotato-amd64/*  

But I couldn’t get it to work.
Or would I have to chmod 777 the folders?


You used chown -R to change the owner of the directory, but ultimately it's the permissions that matter, which are controlled by chmod. chmod details are explained more here.

  • chmod -R for folder and chmod for file – silfrede Mar 13 '14 at 0:16
