I'm working on an old HP tower that seems to not like any of the updates being pushed by Ubuntu. So I am still running 16.04. A recent update broke my entire system and I had to reinstall my OS. Since doing that I have not been able to find how I set the permissions for plex to be able to see my media folders.
They are currently split between two drives at the following locations /SharedSpace/Videos & /MyBook/Videos. This all worked last week and now I can't seem to find instructions that allow plex to access those folders to populate the library.
I also can not find where how to move the plexMD folder from the home directory to a partition that has more space.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Here is the output of my
df -h command
