upnp server: 500 Internal Server Error
« on: January 31, 2011, 02:21:09 pm »
Hi all,

i wanted to test the UPnP server of LMCE but could find it on my network so i looked at:
webadmin -> Advanced -> Configuration -> UPnP Server
all it did show was a big message: 500 Internal Server Error

does anybody have any idea as how to solve this?

thanks upfront,
br,

Raymond

Whenever you find a bug, open a trac ticket, after checking that such a ticket does not yet exists. And you should fill the information in, that helps people to track down the bug and you

How do you know the difference between a real "bug" and a user or system problem.  In otherwords, how do you know that is actualy error in a script somewhere and not a driver issue or an improper user setting.

Thanks,

So basically, you try your best to make it work by searching the forum/wiki/chatroom.  If you are still unable to resolve, then create a ticket with what you did and what the result was and hope for the best.

Sounds simple.

Thanks,

Odd...

Sounds dismissive to me. Don't get me wrong, I am not involved in the project... I just mean that if it were my work in question... I would take that to mean that I was "doing something fundamentally wrong" without actually having to explain ones area of expertice.

That's awesome.


I wish my dick was that big.
I never quit... I just ping out.

This is just the best way to make sure that you didn't set something wrong or forgot so install something. It also maybe a well documented issue and there is some work around that has already been found.

If you are still unable to resolve, then create a ticket with what you did and what the result was and hope for the best.

I would hope that the issue can be recreated so that those that know what they are doing can fix it so the next person doesn't have the headache.

To me, this still sounds quite simple. The smiley face just meant that this made me happy.

I think- and big guess here- that you can get it to run by typing this into a terminal

Code: [Select]
sudo mediatomb -d -i 192.168.80.1 -p 3877 -c /root/.mediatomb/config.xml

Then from a browser you can access mediatomb from 192.168.80.1:3877


I don't know if this gives you the same as you would get from the web admin pages (this doesn't fix that, BTW) but will get you a screen that says mediatomb at the top.

I think the admin pages try to connect on port 49152- so maybe changing the 3877 port to 49152 will get the admin pages working- this is just duct tape as that I don't know how to actually fix the problem.

FWIW

Correct.
