No. It doesn’t do anything.

I changed “runas” with my user name (the one that I use to log in to the system), and the 3689 page gives me an error. I had to change “runas” back to “mt-daapd”.

Is it because the directory that I want to use is on ntfs file system? does it make any difference?

It’s because the user that the server is running as (the run as user) doesn’t have permissions to the music.

Try stopping the server, then editing the file /etc/mt-daapd.conf (or maybe /etc/mt-daapd/mt-daapd.conf, don’t remember on feisty). Change the run_as user directly in the config file to be your user name. Then restart the service and it should go.

You might need to do a full scan from the web interface, but you should be good.
