Reply To: Running Two Copies of Firefly on a Single NSLU2


I’m also thinking of splitting up my music library.

Technically, yes. You’d need to make two config files, with two different db_parms (directories), different ports, different names, and different mp3_dirs. You could share admin-roots.

Should work fine.

Sherlock showed his second config-file:

web_root /opt/share/mt-daapd/admin-root
port 3690
admin_pw mt-daapd
db_dir /opt/var/xt-daapd
mp3_dir /share/flash/data/public/xmasmp3
servername XMAS Music
runas guest
playlist /opt/etc/mt-daapd/xt-daapd.playlist
extensions .mp3,.m4a,.m4p
#logfile = /var/log/mt-daapd.log
rescan_interval 600
always_scan 0

Unfortunately the config-file shows more than just the settings which are different according to the other config-file.
Am I right and are the following settings the settings that makes the difference:

Please can someone confirm and also tell me some more about the port to be used. How can I determine wich port is free?
Also can someone tell me more about the web-root? Will this be the web-page for the second firefly instance? [/quote]
