I don’t understand why the permission is denied : in the mp3 folder there is only one mp3 file that have the readable properties ( i’ve checked it)

addtional info : I’ve done everything logged as root (SSH mode)

thanks for your help


Check the directory it lives in, too. It has to be at least r-x for world to be able to work.

I use rwxr-xr-x for directories and rw-r–r– for files. That’s pretty much the minimum you can have to have it work. Remember, it drops privs and runs as “nobody”, not as root.
