    I’m trying to set up a Firefly media server. my system is already a working LAMP server with Ubuntu Breezy up to date. I went through the steps i found here however when I go to http://localhost:3689, I get an “unable to make connection” error. I looked in my active services and do not see the daemon listed on there.

    Any ideas?

    You can run


    /usr/sbin/mt-daapd -d9 -f -y -c /etc/mt-daapd.conf

    and it will churn out a bunch of stuff, including why it didn’t start. That will probably give you a place to start.

    i tried chmod’ing the file and the folder and get a ‘no such file or folder’ error.

    mkdir -p /var/cache/mt-daapd
    chmod 777 /var/cache/mt-daapd

    that should do it. You can use less permissions permissions, but you’ll have to see what user the daemon is running as and set the permissions accordingly.

    what if you:


    strace /usr/sbin/mt-daapd -d9 -f -y -c /etc/mt-daapd.conf

    Hrm. That really does show access denied when trying to create that. You ran this as root, right?

    Did that file already exist there? Can you touch a file in that directory? How strange.

    Might be worth trying to rebuild the package from scratch. Do you have development tools on that machine?

    ok, i went in through terminal to the file and changed the permissions on it. i had been previously trying to change the permissions on the folder. i was able to log in to the web interface now.

    thank you, i really do appreciate your help.
