The Web Interface is nice and all, but I just don’t use it and would like to disable it.
The web interface is free. DAAP is layered over http, so there *must* be a http server. You could always just empty the files out of the admin root, or put an index.html that didn’t do anything, but you can’t get rid of the web server. Won’t serve files if you do. 🙂
b) it’s one more thing being advertised to my network
Yeah, it might make sense to not advertise it over mdns. At some point, I’m going to make it not advertise if you don’t have an admin_pw set, so that might do something, but from a resources standpoint, it’s already advertising the daap server, so it doesn’t cost any extra resources to advertise the web interface.
maybe I’m just a minimalist, but is there any way I can get rid of that pesky web interface?
In short, not really. And there aren’t really any resouces to “save” there.
