Plex docker not respecting UID / GID variables
I am setting up a new Plex server and cannot get these permission issues worked out.
I have tried running Plex with the following command:
docker run -d --name plex --network=host -e PLEX_CLAIM="claim-XXX" -e PLEX_UID="0" -e PLEX_GID="0" -v "/plexshare/plexdockerconfig":/config -v "/plexshare/transcode":/transcode -v "/plexshare/media":/data plexinc/pms-docker
However I cannot access my /transcode or /media folders which are owned by root.
When I exec in to container as root I can navigate fine:
But when I do the same as user plex, I can't:
Since the docker runs PMS as "plex" and doesn't respect my GID preferences, I have no way of accessing my media.
I am at a loss here so if anyone has advice please chime in.
