    Hi,

    I have Firefly all set up and running on by Ubuntu box. 😀

    Embarrased to admit that I seem to have hit a rather elementary stumbling block when copying the fireplay files over though 😳

    I’m trying to copy the files to

    /usr/share/mt-daapd/admin-root

    But every time I try, I get a permission denied error. I thought this may have been to do with the permissions for the admin-root folder, but I’m unable to change them either – again I get a permission denied error!

    I’d greatly appreciate any advice you can offer. 🙂

    Scratch that! 🙄

    I was using a windows based file transfer program, which seems to struggle with CHMOD requests. I did it directly via SSH and now I have FirePlay working too. :D:D:D

    Heh, yes. The user with which you login on ftp is probably not the same user that installed firefly. So there’s the reason why you couldn’t write in the admin-root dir.

    I was connecting using SSH and logging in as root. Same as when I installed Firefly.

    It was just some naff windows file transfer client which doesn’t get on with CHMOD. I tried it with my web server last night and couldn’t change perms on that either, but it was fine with a direct connection.

    Anyway, all live with Firefly and Fireplay now. 😀 I’m sat in work and streaming my test tracks using Fireplay…
