How do I mount a Drobo5N share for storage?!?!

Nextcloud version 10.0.1
Operating system and version Ubuntu 16.04
Apache or nginx version Apache 2.4.18
PHP version 7.0.15

Good afternoon everyone!

I’ve been trying to mount a share on my Drobo5N as the data directory for my Nextcloud installation. I can manually mount the share and browse and create files and folders but when I configure Nextcloud to use that share it shows an error on the log in screen saying that the root is not writable.

I think this is a permission issue (duh!). I’ve tried all combinations of users and passwords. I hope someone might have gotten this to work.

Thanks for taking the time to read!
