So you’ve got a couple problems right from the get-go. Looks like you have the old config file loaded, and didn’t overwrite it when you installed nightlies.

So reinstall the nightly with –force, and let it overwrite the config file.

Permissions look wrong or something on that directory. Normally the cache dir is /opt/var/cache/mt-daapd, so I think you must have changed it.

So make sure it exists and is writable by the guest user.

[email protected]# mkdir /var/cache/mt-daapd
[email protected]# chmod 777 /var/cache/mt-daapd

will do it at the expense of being insecure if the box is used for multi-user stuff (which I’d guess it isn’t).
