Any way to remove the username and password for the webGUI? 

 

Environment variable or via the settings.json file?

 

I didn't think there was a username or password needed?

There was, at least on mine (default admin/pass), but that may have been a remnant from a previous docker as I migrated to the Linuxserver docker from another one.

 

Anyway, I figured out how to disable it.  Stop the docker, change the rpc-authentication-required setting to false in the settings.json file in the docker appdata directory.  It will no longer prompt for a password.

False is the default setting on settings.json :)  I agree was from your previous docker.

I'm having trouble setting the watch directory.  It keeps resetting itself back to /config/watch which isn't where my watch dirtectory is.  I've tried many sequences of editing the settings.json with no luck.  My Download and incomplete settings hold fine.

 

Any ideas ?  It worked fine in your previous (pre-ls.io) container.

Has anyone else tried to change the watch folder with any success ?

 

I haven't tried to do it but could you use a symlink to work around the issue?

added separate mapping for watch folder.

 

if you pull the latest version from the hub by updating, you will need to add

 

/watch as an extra volume mapping in the unraid template, new users won't have to do this.

Hey guys. Been using this and several of your dockers and they are working great.  ;D

 

I would like to make a suggestion to this specific docker. Is it possible to add python2.7 package to the Docker image? I use a postprocessing script (nzbToMedia) when the torrent download finishes but its not being triggered because of the missing package.

 

TIA and keep up the awesome work.

Thanks.  Pulled the latest and it's all working with a new watch folder mapping.  Cheers.

i migrated from needos docker.

 

1.

my current folders are capitalized for Complete & Incomplete.

now each time the docker starts a complete & incomplete folder is created lowercase.

downloads still go towards the capitalized directories but the lowercase are just there being duplicates and causing headaches on my mac

i tried editing the settings.json but changes doesnt seem to stick and issue still persists when restarted.

 

2.

is there a way to add a username and password?? similar to needos container??

any changes made to the setting.json are not sticking on docker restart

in my case it keeps creating lowercase complete & incomplete even though Complete & Incomplete already exist

You did stop the docker before trying to edit the settings.json right? (I'm not using this but that's how settings.json should be modified)

The team should have told you this, but the init scripts inside the docker are hardwired to create the directories thats giving you hell. Best recourse is to move everything into the lower case directories and use those.

thats news to me. bummer :'(

 

can anyone from the team let me know if creating the directories can be avoided??

The obvious solution would be to just use lowercase.  Personally I try to avoid using uppercase on Linux for this very reason.  I'll take a look over the next couple of days.  But if we changed it to use uppercase then I'm sure we'll see complaints from others about wanting to use lowercase...

 

Having said that, until I've looked at it further I'm not entirely sure of the issue and the exact cause.  So I'll reserve judgement for now.

ken-ji is right, lowercase is hardcoded in and I'm struggling to think of a reason why it's a significant problem, but I'm happy to listen to arguments for and against...  ;)

its just the way ive always had things since unraid 4.7. and from plugins to needos dockers.

thw beginning of thie year i made the switch from needos dockers to linuxserver.io dockers

all went well except for transmission creating those lowercase folders and having to delete them

annoying at the most as long as i dont reboot the server or restart the docker lol

 

attached is how nice it looks on my explorer/finder :P

Honestly, I'll talk to Sparklyballs about this, but I'm not convinced we will change anything.
