    PlayLog

    I'm trying the PlayLog plugin.

    It doesn't log anything, even though I've configured it to automatically
    log all tracks.

    The server log shows some errors:

    Plugins::PlayLog::Plugin::logfileDir (497) unable to create logging
    directory "/PlayLogSongLogs"

    Did I miss a config setting?

    PlayLog tries to create a subdirectory of the main LMS playlist directory ("playlistdir" in server.prefs). Be sure you have that set to a directory that LMS can write to.

    (IIRC my rationale was that I could only really expect LMS to have write permissions to the cache and playlist directories, and that the cache directory was a risky place to save anything important, that it was fairly likely that cache directories would be cleared out occasionially.)

    You could have used the prefs path.

    That makes sense.
    Thanks, it is working now.
