External Hard Drive Mount

I am attempting to attach a USB External hard drive to my Raspberry Pi with Ubuntu Core and Next Cloud. I have tried 2 different hard drives with both being partitioned NTFS, Fat32 and Ext4. I have mounted the drive using the command sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/localdrive and am able to copy and move files to the drive from the command line. When I access the Raspberry Pi with the browser I am able to see the localdrive but when I try to move or copy a files to it I receive a error say "Could not move or error uploading. Following is a copy of what I receive in the log under admin.
Thanks for any help!!

So you data directory of NC is on /media/localdrive? Is this folder accessible by www-data (sudo -u www-data ls -lisa /media/localdrive)? Regarding the file system, if you use this disk only for NC on a LInux system, I would prefer ext4.

I had not used that command. I inputted it and still have the same trouble. The drive I am using now is formatted ext4. I am including the log with this message. Thank You for the help.

Such errors are best to be reported directly to the bugtracker.

Is the /media folder as well readable by the webserver user? I’m not sure if snappy creates a jail? @oparoz

Can you tell me how to report it to bugtracker?
