Problem while trying to setup local storage


I am trying to share an external HDD which is in NTFS format but i cannot see the files on the shared folder.

I have setup the mounted drive that i want to share but on the client i cannot see any files
What am i doing wrong?

I am using Ubuntu and i am new with linux so i would appreciate any help from you guys!


If it’s Ubuntu and you’re looking at an NTFS filesystem, have you looked at the permissions you’ve established for the mount? i.e. Is the user that nextcloud runs as (apache?) allowed to view the folder, but are the files set to a different permission level. First off I would suggest that you show us what the file permissions look like in the root of your shared folder…

# ls -laZ

The Z above will include the selinux context just in case that’s enabled, which can have an effect on things as well.

Can the nextcloud user read the share in linux terminal?
