This is something locking the database — a virus scanner or something of that nature.

First thing I’d do is get svn-1589 from the nightlies site: http://nightlies.mt-daapd.org. Don’t get the latest one, get 1589. That’s stable and works well, plus it’s switched to sqlite3 which has extra code in it to avoid db errors from locked files.

Why is it rescanning the database? Why is it failing on the second scan? HELP???

It rescans periodically to catch new files added. You can configure that from the web interface if you like. From the control panel, there is a link to the web administration panel. Go to “config”, and you’ll see a value for rescan interval. that’s in seconds. If you set it to 0, it’s disabled.

Otherwise, you can tune it to whatever you like.

Yell if that doesn’t fix you up.
