I have a question:
1) Is it possible to disable the web configuration in order to save memory on my slug from being used to run a web server? I’m ok configuring my mt-daapd from the command line and looking at error logs if there are problems.
No, not really. The songs and the playlists and whatnot get served over http, so a web server is a necessary requirement to server daap or rsp.
So the web interface is just kind of free. It listens on the same port as the one for server requests, so it doesn’t even take up any more threads or listening processes or anything. It really is free.
If you just didn’t want it to be able to respond, you could delete the stuff in the admin-root directory, but it wouldn’t gain you anything resource-wise.
