I have just installed Slimsever 6.5.0 on SUSE 10.1.

I have entered my details for my Live365 account. However slimserver does not accept a password of 11 characters. So I have changed my password on live365 to less characters. However, Slimserver will not accept my apssword change. Or rather it does, but when I go back to the server settings/internet radio page it appear my old password remains.

Any clues how to clear my old password, or hack the file the password is contained in soI can get round this?

Cheers

Steve

Thanks for the info.

The password is encrypted, so I deleted it. I then reentered the correct password for 365 but it still doesn't work. The encrypted characters were exactly the same as my original password. Am I missing something here?

Also, I get parse errors when I attempt to attech to Internet Radio sites. I have seen similar comments for 6.5, are there bugs in this version.

I still think this is a great system though!!
