Mythweb mythvideo dir error

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: Rob Smith
Priority: trivial Milestone: unknown

Cc: Ticket locked: no


Just installed svn 12991 when i try to go into mythvideo in mythweb it gives the following error:

Error Could not create a symlink to /mnt/store/movies, the local MythVideo? directory for this hostname (mythhd). Please create a symlink to your MythVideo? directory at data/video in order to use the video portions of MythWeb.

Thats all fine except that it has already created a valid symlink to that directory and it is valid. if i delete the symlink it will re-create it but still give the error.

(In [13000]) Re #3117, adds in a save funciton to the video object, cleans up some code, re #3185, fixes the duplicate error message.

Almoast there. in 13003 i get the same error but in: "MythVideo? directory at data/video_covers in order to use the video artwork"

If i delete both symlinks video@ and video_covers@ from data and reload it creates them and let's me in to mythvideo, if i the go back adn try to access mythvideo again i get the error.

Can you give me the output of a ls -l on the data directory (I'd like to see what the symlink is and all that jazz). I'm really wondering what is going on, as all it does is check if it's a directory or a symlink.

You don't have something really strange in your setup do you?

Just tried to change the Artwork dir to /mnt/store/MythVideo and changed the path in the database, all works fine after that.

Closing as reported as working fine.

I'm experiencing the same error. The symlinks are wrongly created and as a workaround i had to remove them and recreate them as directory's so i could mount them with "mount -o bind". With this dirty hack, the video directory is fine and video's can be played on both the localhost and the remote hosts. Video covers are still unavailable though.

Before using this dirty hack i've verified all permissions/ownership on both the directory's and the symlinks. Both were fine imho.

gentoo linux / Mythweb 0.21_p16809

Are you running apache chrooted by chance?
