    Move 7.7.3 Server to New Networked Computer

    Hey,

    I'm trying to move my squeezebox server. 7.7.3, to another OSX 10.5.8 computer on my network.
    I turned off my old server and installed 7.7.3 server on my new one.

    When I go to the new computer's prefs pane, launch Logitech Media Server and hit "Start Server" it just sits there and nothing happens.

    Did I miss a step somewhere?

    Any help greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Carl

    Sure security settings and exceptions are the same for both computers? Anti virus & firewalls?
    Is it a complete fresh install of LMS (not trying to preserve settings from previous LMS preferences/settings)?

    does it run ? starting the server is not the same as making the web-UI appear ? you should have a setup dialog in the web-UI

    It's a fresh install. I'm not seeing a setup on the UI. I assume that would be on mysqueezebox.com somewhere?

    It makes sense if there was a firewall or other issue it couldn't
    communicate with whatever device on the network, but does seem odd that the server won't start at all.

    Many thanks,

    Carl

    Thanks, that URL works fine on my original server machine but I assume it's not working on my new one
    because the server won't seem to start using the "Start Server" button in it's pref pane.

    I tried re-installing the LMS but still no go.

    Any idea what might keep it from loading?

    Also, is it possible to point the music library to a different computer on the same network?
    Thinking it may work just as well keeping the server on my old machine.
    I tried changing the path to point to the new computer but no joy as yet.

    Thanks,

    Carl
