Web interface won't fully load; music location changed

Postby mgoldey » Sat May 18, 2019 5:49 pm

Howdy, all.

I've had a running Subsonic premium installation on my Windows 10 machine for several years.

I recently changed the drive letter of my network drive from Z: to Y:, and the the web interface now takes 10 minutes to load. I'm just trying to get to the settings pages to change the file locations, and I've been at this for 30 minutes "Waiting for localhost...."

Can this be done through a .conf or XML file? Is there a way other than waiting for subsonic server to time out when it realizes that it cannot find 70,000 songs where it expects them to be?

What's going to happen now is that I have to go run an errand and when I return the web authentication will probably have timed out and I will have to start all over again. Sigh.

FWIW, as a suggestion for the UI and useability, it's too bad that the controls elements of the Subsonic server web interface do not function until (I guess) the entire web page loads. It would be much better if they became responsive before the entire page loads. Otherwise, a mis-configuration (or a dead drive!) hangs the web interface for long periods with no obvious way to regain control in real time.

Thanks for any info on manually resetting the shared music paths.

Still "Waiting for localhost" 2 hours later.

For the benefit of anyone who follows . . . .

A solution is, unfortunately, just to wait it out. It may help to use the "settings" link that pops up from the bottom of the browser window, if it appears sooner than the left-hand menu.

Once you have access to the media folders page, you might try un-enabling each folder, but I'm not sure that would make any difference. Instead, try "clean up database" which deletes all of the files and folders that Subsonic is searching for, and gives you control again. Then, change the URLs for the shared media folders and Subsonic will re-index everything.
