            ampache on debian
            I have been a happy ampache user for a while - tried several php-based playlist managers, and nothing came even clsoe to ampache for useability.

            I've just loaded it again into my latest server (debian lenny instead of ubuntu hardy - debian seems quite a lot faster and I'm sick of ubuntu upgrades breaking things) and only had one problem

            - the web install asked to put the config file in /config, and I finally found out after a bit of googling that it actually meant /etc/ampache (which seems perfectly reasonable, so why didnt it just say so??)

            thats the only problem I had.

            Well I'm not a web/linux developer. Everything I have learned about linux I learned by reading numerous article on the web. I have no formal computer training and I managed to get ampache to work on Windows XP Home Edition, Ubuntu Lamp Server, and Debian. If you go to Ampache's wiki page there are detailed instruction on how to install Ampache on several linux distributions along with instructions on how to set it up on Windows. Did you go to the Ampache Forum and ask any questions. So don't say it's bad software just because YOU the the almighty web/linux developer can't get it to work. So tell me what linux apps are you developing so I can stay away from them!!

            Great software
            By far the best music database/mp3 streaming software I've used so far. Installation took 15 mins, it was incredibly easy thanks to a very streamlined web-installer. Too many fantastic features to mention here. The only drawback is that it's highly id3tag-dependent. If your tags are a mess, it's going to be hard to organize your music. I used it as a chance to finally get around to retagging everything properly. :)

            Highly recommended.

            Cataloging problem
            Can someone give me a quick explanation on what you do when you cant get any catalogs working/added? I put a directory of MP3s in my "docs" directory and tried to add with "./newdir" as the catalog location and it wont work. Ive tried other things too.

            thanks. :-)
