Permissions on external HDD container

Hello All,

good day.

im trying to migrate my NC19 server to a container.

so far i can install the container and map a persistent drive to the host’s drive but when i try to use an external HDD i get the following erros on the log:

Initializing nextcloud …
rsync: chown “/var/www/html/data” failed: Operation not permitted (1)
rsync error: some files/attrs were not transferred (see previous errors) (code 23) at main.c(1207) [sender=3.1.3]

this is more than likely a permissions issue, but when mounting the HDD as root and granting access to the external drive /media/ncd as root:root or as www-data:www-data i get the above error.

now, the external hdd file system is exfat (not sure if this will affect on the container).

any ideas how can i get past this?

im close to format my hdd as ext4 to see if this fixes it.

your assistance is appreciated.


Just fixed my issue by changing the filesystem from ExFat to ext4.
