I’ve got access to web admin page, but I’m unable to scan any track from my folder.

The directory you put the music in has no permissions for mt-daapd to read. Not readable = nothing found. 23rd February 2010 at 10:28 pm #18917 EVILRipperParticipant FYI, firefly is often run as user ‘nobody’, so make sure anyone has read access. 24th February 2010 at 10:02 am #18918 Anonymous I know, but I’m linux newbie and don’t know how to solve this issue. 25th February 2010 at 4:27 pm #18919 Anonymous At a command line enter: chmod 777 /path/to/your/music/folder. Replace /path/to/… with the correct path.
