    LMS has lost all it's settings

    My squeezelite-X app stopped playing today and flashed it lost connection to my LMS server. No bother I though so I restarted my server (WHS 2011) running LMS and its come back.

    However the music is there but my settings don't seem to be. Nothing in library, nothing in mysqueezebox and everytime I try and enter my login it bounces back timeout.

    This could be the death knell for me, I'm not using any players other than squeezelite-X when working in my office. Google Home and spotify have taken over the rest of the house. I do have my receiver setup but I have not used it in about a year.

    squeezelite is still my goto in the office for spicefly sugarcube and Erlands plugins as well as Michael's Spotty but I really cannot be bothered setting up again? Anybody know of quick recovery from anywhere? Do I have settings I can copy in?

    Update: OK the plugins appear to be there still, but all mine rely on mysqueezebox for licence manager, so that does seem to be the root cause? Will see if it sorts itself out? I can logon fine to the mysqueezebox website by the way.

    OK, stuck with it, turns out the WHS server ran out of disk space on C:\ It's been backing up 30mb a day for trackstats for about 4 years

    Tidied that up and although I am having to setup again all the plugins are working again once I managed to get it to save mysqueezebox.com settings again.

    Trackstats isn't working though but the 30mb files are down to 1mb so I am restoring an old copy first but I know by past experience this will take a few days, so will leave that running and see how it looks later in the week.

    No sure why lack of disk space = loss of settings but lets see if I can get it back. Spicefly SugarCube is working which is my favourite plugin so that is a big plus.

    If it doesn't fix the trackstats I am half thinking about scrapping the OS partition of my Micro Proliant and installing full server 2012 R2. At least that is still on extended support for a while and I have a licence through work. Then will do a final LMS build from scratch on a better OS. I have to have windows OS because of the MusicIP integration in SugarCube.

    You can run MusicIP on a Raspberry Pi. There is a thread dedicated to it.

    Cheers for the info, I think my WHS 2011 lives on though, the restore was successful and a quick check of the slim wiki for trackstat refreshed my middle aged brain

    WHS 2011 only has my LMS server and a few network shares so can stay until it stops working. Windows 10 reads the shares fine even with HOMEGROUP support being dropped.

    TRACKNUM. TITLE (TRACKSTATRATINGDYNAMIC) was the required interface setting. Its not on by default.
