View Full Version : Web control panel not displaying

Hi guys,

I just got a new Squeezebox V3 and am having a small problem with it. Well actually the problem seems to be more with slimserver.

I installed slimserver and started it, everything seems ok. no errors or anything. But when i point firefox or safari to http://localhost:9000 , i just get a blank page.

The squeezebox seems to work fine, finds the server. the server has found my itunes library on it's own. and the squeezebox plays my library just fine.

I am running Mac OS X 10.4.8 on a Macbook pro. Slimserver 6.5 downloaded yesterday. The built in firewall is off.

Have i missed somthing in the setup? i'm sure i did everything in the instructions, not that there is much to do apart from install and start.

Many thanks for any help in advance.

I saw this when I changed the skin to one that didn't exist. (Duh!)

Try http://localhost:9000/Default

I got it! I was having the same problem in OS X. Do this:
1. Stop SlimServer.
2. Go into this folder: (your user name here)/Library/Caches/SlimServer/templates/
3. Move all the files and folders there to the desktop.
4. Restart SlimServer.
5. If you can hit your SlimServer web interface now, you can delete those files you moved to the desktop. This cured my blank-page problem, and automatically recreated the files in the "templates" folder.
