View Full Version : Slimserver unable to connect to DB

2007-12-04, 07:10
I am running Slimserver 6.5.1 on a Linksys NSLU2 with the Unslung OS. I use a Squeezebox v2. So far, the Slimserver and the SB have worked fine, but after restarting the NSLU2 I ran into problems.

The slimserver starts, but terminates after a few seconds. The slimserver log contains the following:

<end log>

It seems that there is a problem connecting to the database.

The database seems to use port number 9092. I guess that it could be a problem with the port configuration or the mysql service.

Being new to MySQL, I am not quite sure how to track the error.

Ideas are most welcome.

I`m used the SC7, after the same problems on my Synology CS 407.
This version runs since 2 weeks without problems. I donīt now thats the mysql problem in the 6.5.... :-(
Then the SC7 runs on your system, install this version.
Regard`s, Eiber. :-)
