anyone ever gotten this from MythWeb going into the video tab?

Error

Could not create a symlink to /share/Movies/dvd/:/myth/video, the local MythVideo directory for this hostname (stingray). Please create a symlink to your MythVideo directory at data/video in order to use the video portions of MythWeb.


I'm using R5.5.

Now I'm having the same error on a fresh install of R6. Didn't have this issue on R5.5. I checked the database paths and hostname entries and they appear to be fine.

hmm....not sure where to go from here.

yes, I have.

Did you check under:
Code:
/var/www/data

to ensure that all the paths, links, and permissions were correct?

I seem to recall I had to tweak this.

The above directory is where mythweb gets its data.

ok....had some time to look deeper into this....for some reason the symlink was missing.....needs to be from the default video directory, i.e. /myth/video to /data/srv/httpd/htdocs/mythweb/data.

the directory structure of the web server has changed in R6 and I don't have a 5.5 machine any more but I suspect if you follow the /var/www path as suggested you will find data directory you can create the symlink to there...

To make it easier for the new folks,

$ sudo -i
# ln -s /myth/video /data/srv/httpd/htdocs/mythweb/data
# ctrl d
$

should do the trick

mjl,
That's just for R6. OP said he was running R5.5.

Which would be:
Code:
$ su
# ln -s /myth/video /usr/share/mythtv/mythweb/data/video
# ctrl d
$


You may also have to link in the covers directory as well. I can't remember if this is the stock place as I network mount all of my stuff but I use:
Code:
ln -s /myth/video/.covers /usr/share/mythtv/mythweb/data/video_covers


C

Thanks

Didn't notice the R5.5 part but it was needed in R6 for me anyway.

This isn't working for me in R6.002. "/myth/video/.covers" is symlinked to a directory on my FreeNAS media server. MythWeb doesn't show the movie posters.

MythVideo does, but not MythWeb.

I'm not sure how to fix this.

Help?

MythVideo does, but not MythWeb.

I have the same issue and I am also network mounting. I had this working in R5.5 but not in 6.xx. Unfortunately I haven't had time to investigate too far as to why. I eliminated the lighttpd basedir as an issue and I think my permissions are generally ok.

My next suspicion is that I use CIFS to mount which I know has some issues with web servers for data transfer.

What are you using for network protocol?

NFS.
