How to access the web interface

    I've been looking around in the documentation, and one thing I can't seem to fin out is how to access the web interface. If i go to the root of my server, I simply get the pages served by Apache, so that's not it. I've seen port 50000 and 50500 somewhere hidden in the docs, they don't work either.

    The URL to access the web interface seems extremely basic information to me, and I shall assume that it's in the documentation in some kind of "getting started" section, but silly me can't seem to find it. So the question is: what is the url?

    My server is a Ubuntu 11.10 server, if that helps. My linux knowledge is kind of novice.

    If you are accessing the interface from a different computer on the same network, you will first need to know the IP (or domain name) of your server as well as the port you set for mediatomb.  If you didn't set up a different port in the .config file then it is the default port of 49152.  To access web interface type in a browser:
    In my case it is
    Hope this helps.

    I meant hostname not domain name.  Domain name is probably something different.

    Your server must have a static ip address assigned to it so you can easily access its web interface. Open your browser, enter your server's static ip.


    If you are trying to access it outside lan, your server is likely behind a router. Before you can access your server's interface your router must also have a static external ip address or hostname. You can have it through DDNS. Then your router must be set to forward your server's static ip address and its port. Then in your browser enter your home external ip address.

      i.e. http://www.external-ip-address:port where "port" is the port your server is being forwarded by your router to listen.
