Ok so that seems to be screenshot from ControlPanel/Shared Folders, could be there is an issue because you have created user called Songkong instead of songkong

Can you also send me two screenshots for the two tabs in folders permissions in FileStation as well please

thanks Paul (Administrator)

Assuming you have an Intel based NAS you could try songkong/songkongdockerdev image instead. This is same as standard songkong docker build except I don't specify a user, therefore I think this means it runs as root and therefore should have full file access.

Heh, so you can use that instead it is running exactly the same version of SongKong. But I would like to know why we cant get permissions to work when running as songkong instead, it would be helpful to see that other permissions screenshot page I asked about and whether the issue is simply that you created as user Songkong instead of songkong.

Then I have to make decision about whether I should make the standard docker app run as root instead. By creating a user I was trying to follow best practise but since it has caused a problem for number of qnap users I am wondering if better to just run as root.

just sent you the screens as requested.

I've also recreated a new "songkong" but still same results...

Happy to run more tests if needed though, just let me know.

Since only the administrator can install/run SongKong it seems reasonable to allow that to run as root rather than trying to solve the problem of getting correct uids/gids and adding to these songkong.

The effect is essentially the same, since with a songkong user the customer would be attempting to give songkong access to write to music files without giving it to non admin users of the qnap. So whether using songkong or root the aim is when running songkong have access to all files. Access to what music files songkong has access to is already controlled by the mapping of the /music folder. Hence using a songkong user would only have the effect of controlling access to a subset of files within /music folder and I cannot see a usecase for this at all.

Of course, this does mean when songkong is running anyone could use webbrowser to change any files under /music, but this is the case anway if songkong user was given permissions to /music folder anyway, so there is no change. But I will additionally introduce simple password access to songkong front end itself - https://jthink.atlassian.net/projects/SONGKONG/issues/SONGKONG-1648

I have now rebuilt songkong/songkong and songkong/songkong-arm32 so that they run as root and this should resolve permissions issue. I have now hidden songkong/songkongdockerdev since it is now no different to standard images.

Thanks, to be clear it is now part of the standard version. Also we have just updated docker images to use SongKong 5.14, that has just been released.

ok. I might need to open a new ticket but I've tested songkong and got loads of songs unmatched which seems unreal because they're all soul classics ...Any idea why this happens at all?

Not really, if nothing is getting matched then maybe database corrupted in which case please run Empty Database from the Admin menu, otherwise please run Create Support Files
