    Server can't see media on Mac

    I recently upgraded to an iMac running Mac OS Catalina and LMS 8.2. My media is on an external drive and even though I choose the music folder on that drive, LMS does not see any of the music files when I rescan. I have tried clearing the cache but it doesn't help. I have some FLAC files on the internal hard drive and those show up fine. Any suggestions?

    Please search the forum for catalina or mojave. There are several
    threads of almost identical subject line...

    summary: you need to give perl5.18 full disk access.

    I tried searching and I have given full disk access to perl5.18. Still nothing in the library. It works fine in Mojave, though.

    No worries.

    The bash binary lives in /bin (not /usr/bin). Follow the instructions I posted in my replies in the thread I mentioned.

    Use the LMS panel in System Preferences to Stop / Start the server.

    Thanks. It seems to have worked--the media library statistics went from 0 albums to 2751. Hallelujah!
