More instructions for installing on linux

Post by superzentredi »

Hello, I downloaded the zip file onto my ubuntu machine but for the life of me I can't figure out how to get it working. I've tried launching from the command line but I get Segmentation fault (Core Dumped) error. Ive also tried the master from git hub with nodejs npm installed and everything but I can not get the web interface to load. It just says NAT setup doesn't work: Error: Timeout.
Could use some more thorough instructions on how to set this up on a linux machine.
Thanks

I just tried a clean install of MMS on my Ubuntu VM without any errors. What version of NodeJS and NPM are you using?

Here are the steps I took:

Code: Select all

git clone https://github.com/mediamonkeyserver/mms.git
cd mms
npm install
npm start
Note that the npm install process may take some time the first time. If you force-stop it while it's in the process of compiling the web interface, it may get borked and you'll need to re-clone it.

I'm personally not certain of what the NAT setup doesn't work: Error: timeout is coming from, but it's not necessary for MMS to function. (I got the same error on my Ubuntu VM, but the server still loads under localhost:10222)

Here's a sample of expected output:

Code: Select all


> mediamonkeyserver@0.3.2 start
> node server.js

SQL: path=/home/drak/MediaMonkeyServer/mms.db
Database loaded in 0.04 seconds
Prepared statements in 0.00 seconds
0 files have been read from database in 0 ms
Scanning of /home/drak/Music has failed: Error: Can not scan directory
==================================================
MMS v0.3.2 running at http://172.29.164.42:10222 (or http://localhost:10222)
Connect using a web browser or using MediaMonkey 5.
==================================================
Scanning of /home/drak/Videos has failed: Error: Can not scan directory
A new client connected (Chrome on Windows)
NAT setup doesn't work: Error: timeout
User admin has logged in
(Reason /home/drak/Music and /home/drak/Videos scan failed is because those folders don't exist :slight_smile:)

npm is 7.24.1
nodejs is 10.19.0

I might try starting from scratch on this, something must've gone wrong somewhere in the process. Usually takes me a couple tries to get things running properly in ubuntu as Im still a developing amateur at linux based systems.

Seems everything is running on the mediamonkey server but the web server on 10222. It loads the database, tries to scan directories. The only error now seems to be a certificate error. "Caught exception: Error: error:140AB18F:SSL routines:SSL_CTX_use_certificate:ee key too small"

Thanks, the error "SSL_CTX_use_certificate:ee key too small" will be fixed in the next build.
