MythWeb Video "Scan Collection" breaks on file permission errors

Reported by: professorbooty@… Owned by: Rob Smith
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: mythweb Version: 0.21-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords: mythweb scan collection
Cc: Ticket locked: no


In MythWeb/video, hit the Scan Collection button in the upper right. If the user - i assume the Apache user account - does not have execute permissions on at least one directory under the videos directory set for MythWeb, MythWeb will throw the "An Unknown module was specified," page for anything under MythWeb/video.

The only way to resolve this is to re-scan the video collection from the front end. I believe this means that MythWeb is declaring there to be no video files and thus the MythWeb/Video? module won't load.

(In [17452]) Fixes #5395, this verifies that the main directory is enterable before deleting, and softens up the enabling requirements a little
