    Media server doesn't save any of my new settings

    Hello all,

    I can't seem to get the media server to save my more recent settings.

    Example: as my iTunes library has grown, I have had to increase the "Maximum Playlist Length" in "Advanced Settings-->Advanced-->Performance-->Maximum Playlist Length". The setting works in the short term but the next day after I boot up my Mac, the Maximum Playlist Length setting has reverted to its previous number.

    A second example happens when I add a new radio station to my Web Remote Control. Again, it remembers the setting for the short term, but the next day, it's gone.

    I assume after you change the max playlist length you click the apply button ?

    dasmueller, yes, I clicked the "Save" button. Each time.

    DJanGo, Just ran Disk Permissions. I'll see if it saved my LMS settings tomorrow after I boot up my Mac.

    Did you check server.log? Anything in there?

    Media Server issues not resolved

    I wanted to give this a few days to see if the previous fixes helped. They didn't.

    @mherger: this is the result of today's attempt to add a radio station to my favorites in the Web Remote Control in the server logs.

    I am not sure how to read this so I have no idea what action to take.

    These messages have nothing to do with your adding a favourite. But they do show that there's a problem on your system. Either permissions, or disk full or other storage related problems: it has tried to download a file and rename it. And that simple action fails. You could try to do the renaming of the file manually. Would that work?

    @mherger, just to be clear, is the file I need to look for and rename "baby.version"?

    The favorite I am adding is from a URL so I am not uploading or adding any files.

    Yes. And check its permissions, too.

    I checked the permissions first. The settings say the permissions are "custom." Do any of these need to change or is it best to rename the file and start over?
