Folder Scan in Debian Buster Issues

Postby istrive » Sat Mar 28, 2020 7:14 pm

My system is a Debian Buster (Up to date) and the latest version of Subsonic is installed.
When I scan my media folder (/mnt/wdnas/Music) it only retrieves about 15K songs, out of 24k+ available in the location!
Is there a limit for the free version to cap the songs allowed? if not, why it doesn't recognize the files since they are all MP3? - and mostly 320kbps with ALL proper ID tags and art cover (managed by MP3Tag application)...
Every other application I use like iTunes and ServIIo recognize the songs automatically, so I know it's not permissions or file issues, but the app itself!
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

No Cap,No limit, are you sure all the files have the correct rights and can be seen by the subsonic server account is running from ?

The account the subsonic is running is the user that has full admin rights in the system, so what else could it be?
The folders belong to the user for r/w - explicit user and group, which is located in a nas drive

I don't think it is a subsonic problem.
There is no iTunes for Linux, so you are running it inside Wine or similar, or you have mapped the NAS to a windows drive Letter, that makes a difference.
The /mnt/ folder is a mirror of the NAS, are all files in /mnt/ available? Count it! I don't know and you didn't say how you bind the NAS .... in fstab, that is sometimes tricky?
Sometimes the Java memory is to low for scanning and writing the Database at the same time, low system memory?
Read the Log files, the subsonic logs as well the different system logs, there MUST be more information.

With so little information it is like digging in the dirt, there are so many possibilitys in Linux based systems. Most of them are resulting in the security system, user, rights, folder access and very often is the problem located in front of the screen ;-)

Read here how to ask for help .... but ten lines are sometimes not enough.
