ANSWERED Small bug in setup wizard

Recommended Posts

Ceten

Hi

I'm just going through the setup of a new Emby server on my Synology DS918+.
The package installed just fine but while going through the setup wizard I noticed the dropdown for adding a folder to my media library didn't work.
After selecting one of the folders on my NAS it just closes the dropdown without selecting the chosen folder.

Not a big problem as I could just enter the path manually but I thought I'd let you know :)

Please attach the emby server log, thanks.

When proceeding I noted Emby did not find anything in the shared folder due to missing permissions. I tried again to add a folder after giving read/write permissions and now it works without any errors.

The log also shows an access denied error so I guess we can blame this on me not setting the correct permissions before trying to add the folder:

2017-12-28 15:10:38.622 Error HttpServer: Error processing request

...

Maybe it would be an option in this case to show a message pointing to the wiki (https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Wiki/wiki/Synology-:-Setting-Up-Your-Media-Library-Share) which helped me solve this?

It might help people who are new to Emby/Synology.
