    For 9 months or so I’d been running Firefly on my Windows Media Center PC to serve songs to my Roku Soundbridge. A few weeks ago I started finding Firefly stopped all the time. I could restart it but it would very soon stop again. I removed and reinstalled both Bonjour and Firefly and now I can’t even get Firefly to start! Here’s the log:
    Log file: firefly.log

    2007-08-03 14:33:20: Aborting

    Some changes to files and programs in the last few weeks: I installed Orb (Orb 2.0); I installed Mozy; I moved my iTunes music folder from one drive to another (and updated the location in both iTunes, which is working, and Firefly); there was, I think, a McAfee update (but McAfee firewall still shows Firefly as having full access); there was a Firefox update after which I got a pop up saying that Firefox was disabling some incompatible Java plug-in. When I just removed and re-installed Bonjour (Bonjour for Windows 1.04) and Firefly (1.0 svn-1586), both installations were I think newer versions than the ones I previously had. Please help if you can.

    Well, it seems that your database directoyr is no longer accesible to firefly.
    Could be its McAffee thats blocking access at that time, or that the path is generally locked….

    Check out the firefly config file (called mt-daapd.conf for legacy reasons ;)) and especially the line that contains “db_param”. Thats the culprit path.

    I don’t know how to open mt-dpaad.conf, and I’m not sure what I should be looking for or how to fix it if I were to open it. Can I email the conf file to you or send you a remote desktop invitation? I did just Google for some freeware to open a conf file and downloaded “libconfig-1..1.3.tar.gz” but it seams I need a program I don’t have to open that! If you want to email your email address to me I’m [email protected].

    You can edit the conf file with notepad or wordpad.

    Thanks. After reading the recommendation of 1489 posted on the rokulabs forum, I removed 1586 and installed 1489. 1489 might have been the version that had stopped working after many months of joy and started my flailing around to find the problem (which led to my removing whatever version had stopped and installing 1586), but in any event removing 1586 and installing or re-installing 1489 temporarily restored my service. After starting (a big improvement over 1586!) and scanning my library, 1489 ran for 10 minutes or so but then stopped. I’ll post the error report and log in the next message.

    Here’s my config file. Any suggestion?

    # This is the Firefly Media Server config file.
    #
    # Note that any changes made to this file will require the server to be
    # shut down and restarted
    #
    #

    [general]
    #
    # web_root (required)
    #
    # Location of the admin web pages.
    #
    # If you installed from .RPM, .deb, or tarball with –prefix=/usr, then
    # this is correct.
    #
    # If you installed from tarball without –prefix=/usr, then the correct
    # path is probably /usr/local/share/mt-daapd/admin-root.
    #

    web_root=admin-root

    #
    # port (required)
    #
    # What port to listen on. It is possible to use a different
    # port, but this is the default iTunes port
    #

    port=9999

    #
    # admin_pw (required)
    #
    # This is the password to the administrative pages
    #

    admin_pw=firefly

    #
    # db_type (required)
    #
    # This is what kind of backend database to store the song
    # info in. Valid choices are “sqlite” and “sqlite3”.
    #
    # sqlite seems to be more stable.

    db_type=sqlite3

    #
    # db_parms
    #
    # This is any extra information the db needs to connect.
    # in the case of sqlite and sqlite3, this is the name
    # of the directory to store the database in
    #
    # If you installed from RPM or .deb, this path likely already
    # exists. If not, then you must create it. The directory itself
    # must be writable by the “runas” user.
    #

    db_parms=.

    #
    # mp3_dir (required)
    #
    # Location of the mp3 files to share. Note that because the
    # files are stored in the database by inode, these must be
    # in the same physical filesystem.
    #

    mp3_dir=C:Documents and SettingsHP_AdministratorMy DocumentsMy Music

    #
    # servername (required)
    #
    # This is both the name of the server as advertised
    # via rendezvous, and the name of the database
    # exported via DAAP. Also know as “What shows up in iTunes”.
    #

    servername=Firefly Media Server

    #
    # runas (required)
    #
    # This is the user to drop privs to if running as
    # root. If mt-daapd is not started as root, this
    # configuration option is ignored. Notice that this
    # must be specified whether the server is running
    # as root or not.
    #
    # This is a leftover from the port from unix — it’s
    # not used on windows, but still hanging around, like
    # an appendix.
    #

    runas=nobody

    #
    # password (optional)
    #
    # This is the password required to listen to MP3 files
    # i.e. the password that iTunes prompts for
    #

    #password=mp3

    #
    # extensions (optional)
    #
    # These are the file extensions that the daap server will
    # try to index and serve. By default, it only indexes and
    # serves .mp3 files. It can also server .m4a and .m4p files,
    # and just about any other files, really. Unfortunately, while
    # it can *attempt* to serve other files (.ogg?), iTunes won’t
    # play them. Perhaps this would be useful on Linux with
    # Rhythmbox, once it understands daap. (hurry up!)
    #
    # Failing that, one can use server-side conversion to transcode
    # non-standard (.ogg, .flac) music to wav on the server side.
    # See the ssc_* options below.
    #

    extensions=.mp3,.m4a,.m4p,.wma,.flac,.ogg

    #
    # ssc_codectypes (optional)
    #
    # List of codectypes for files that the daap server should
    # perform internal format conversion and present to clients
    # as WAV files. The file extensions that these codectypes correspond
    # to must also be present in ‘extensions’
    # configuration value, or files are not probed in the first
    # place.
    #
    # Valid codectypes:
    #
    # mp4a – for AAC (.aac, .mp4, .m4a, .m4p)
    # mpeg – for mp3
    # wav – for wav
    # wma – for wma
    # ogg – for ogg
    # flac – for flac (.flac, .fla)
    # mpc for musepack (.mpc, .mpp, .mp+)
    # alac for alac (.m4a)
    #

    #ssc_codectypes ogg,flac,alac

    #
    # ssc_prog (optional)
    #
    # Program that is used in server side format conversion.
    # Program must accept following command line syntax:
    # ssc_prog filename offset length …
    # Parameter filename is the real name of the file that is
    # to be converted and streamed, offset is number of bytes
    # that are skipped from the beginning of the _output_ file
    # before streaming is started, length is length of the song
    # in seconds (or zero). All other possible arguments must
    # be ignored. The resulting wav file (or the rest of
    # the file after initial seek) is written to the standard
    # output by the ssc_prog program. This is typically
    # a script that is a front end for different conversion tools
    # handling different formats.
    #

    #ssc_prog /etc/mt-daapd-ssc-script

    #
    # logfile (optional)
    #
    # This is the file to log to. If this is not configured,
    # then it will log to the syslog.
    #
    # Not that the -d switch will control the log verbosity.
    # By default, it runs at log level 1. Log level 9 will churn
    # out scads of useless debugging information. Values in between
    # will vary the amount of logging you get.
    #

    #logfile /var/log/mt-daapd.log

    #
    # art_filename (optional)
    #
    # There is experimental support thanks to Hiren Joshi
    # ([email protected]) for dynamically adding art to the id3v2
    # header as it is streamed (!!). If you were using a music system
    # like zina or andromeda, for example, with cover art called
    # “_folderOpenImage.jpg”, you could use the parameter
    # art_file _folderOpenImage.jpg and if the file _folderOpenImage.jpg
    # was located in the same folder as the .mp3 file, it would appear
    # in iTunes. Cool, eh?
    #

    #art_filename _folderOpenImage.jpg

    #
    # rescan_interval
    #
    # How often to check the file system (in sec) to see if any mp3 files
    # have been added or removed.
    #
    # if not specified, the default is 0, which disables background scanning.
    #
    # If background rescanning is disabled, a scan can still be forced from the
    # “status” page of the administrative web interface
    #
    # Setting a rescan_interval lower than the time it takes to rescan
    # won’t hurt anything, it will just waste CPU, and make connect times
    # to the daap server longer.
    #
    #

    rescan_interval = 600

    # always_scan
    #
    # The default behavior is not not do background rescans of the
    # filesystem unless there are clients connected. The thought is to
    # allow the drives to spin down unless they are in use. This might be
    # of more importance in IDE drives that aren’t designed to be run
    # 24×7. Forcing a scan through the web interface will always work
    # though, even if no users are connected.

    #
    # By default m3u processing is turned off, since most m3u files

    # I hear about it. 🙂
    #
    # If you are sure your m3u files have good paths (i.e. unixly pathed,
    # with relative paths relative to the directory the m3u is in), then
    # you can turn on m3u processing by setting this directive to 1.

    # 0 (Normal)
    # Just scan the first mp3 frame to try and calculate size. This will
    # be accurate for most files, but VBR files without an Xing tag will
    # probably have wildly inaccurate file times. This is the default.
    #
    # 1 (Aggressive)
    # This checks the bitrates of 10 frames in the middle of the song.
    # This will still be inaccurate for VBR files without an Xing tag,
    # but they probably won’t be quite as inaccurate as 0. This takes
    # more time, obviously, although the time hit will only happen the
    # first time you scan a particular file.
    #
    # 2 (Painfully aggressive)
    # This walks through the entire song, counting the number of frames.
    # This should result in accurate song times, but will take the most
    # time. Again, this will only have to be incurred the first time
    # the file is indexed.

    Would you recommend I change the rescan interval and/or the scan always settings to 0? Also, you may see above in my log that there are some weird entries mixed in with my playlists (entries that firefly fails to scan but then lists among playlists even though these entries contain no items). Would changing m3u setting to 0 fix that, or if not would you suggest a fix?

    This is a program that’s locked the database file when the server tries to open it.

    It used to be anti-virus software that would do that, but (assuming you are using sqlite3 as a db backend rather than sqlite2), it should be worked around with the current version.

    I’d guess it’s one of the two pieces of software you mentioned.

    Do you have an option to not back up files by extension? Like, can you configure it not to back up the database or scan files with an extension of .db?

    I think that would probably fix it.

    If the problem is Mozy, an offsite backup program, then I should be able to stop it from scanning and backing up the db file. I don’t think Mozy lets you ignore files by extension, but it has a directory check box system for selecting and deselecting which files are in the backup group. I definitely want Mozy to back up my music files, but I guess I don’t need it to back up the firefly db. Is the file I may need to prevent from being backed up the “songs3” database file in the Firefly folder? If the problem is Orb, a media server, then I think I can likewise tell it to look in certain directories and not others. Thanks again for your help. BTW, if you get a chance I’d be grateful for your advice on the config file settings questions I posed in my immediately previous post in this string: I.e., would you recommend setting rescan and always scan to 0 (and just manually telling Firefly to scan when I add new items to my library), and — more importantly — do you think setting m3u to 0 will eliminate those phantom playlists (or is there another fix for that)?

    I set rescan to 0 myself, as I add music infrequently enough that I manually scan when I do, and I don’t like stuff in the background stealing cpu unless I tell it to.

    You could set m3u to be 0, and that will stop the playlist issue, but the more fundamental issue is that the m3u files aren’t accurate — the paths in them aren’t correct, or there is a file system codepage problem. Both of those I hope to have worked around in the server software at some point soon.
