I installed mediatomb on my ubuntu server 10.0 today through apt-get. After running it as a daemon, i opened the gui web page and it requires me to enter username and password. I tried mediatomb for both without success. I checked the config.xml and account is disabled.
Are there any solutions?
I think that's mediatomb's way of telling you that your server is not running. Try going through these questions & see if that helps:
You might try running it from the command line first instead of going through the daemon until you get everything running.
i actually solved the problem by enabling account the entering the username and password at login.
Oh Interesting. Thanks for replying back, I didn't know you could do that.
