    Linux user squeezeboxserver password

    Hello all,

    On my Linux LMS installation I wish to move the playlists folder to a NAS. My NAS does not allow setting a share to be full access to all users so I need to know the password of the Linux user squeezeboxserver, that gets setup on install and is the owner of the current playlists folder; /var/lib/squeezeboxserver/Plugins. Does anyone know if this is the same password for all installations?

    My thinking is I can then add this user to my NAS and so move the playlists folder.


    Thanks in advance,
    Paul.

    I would have thought you could create any password you want on the NAS and then create NFS mount from your LMS machine to the NAS box using those new credentials.
