Thread: Mediatomb configuration

  1. #1

    Default Mediatomb configuration

    Hi All,

    I have installed the mediatomb application from Packman, but I cannot seem to log in. It is running and I cannto seme to tell how. The service is enabled and when I look at the script it is starting as "Nobody" but when I grep the service it shows running as the mediatomb user.

    Also I cannot connect to it via port 50500 in the .conf file but I can to port 49152 and I am presented with a username/login screen.

    If I run mediatomb -d logged in as myself there is not login screen, but I want it running on startup

    I am trying to set this up as a standalone use server just to catalog my NAS based media on a file share

    To solve the problem:

    edit /etc/mediatomb.conf

    Change MT_USER to "nobody".

    Everything should start properly for you then.
