Configuration Changes are lost on Server restart on DNS-323

Post by vifa84 » Thu Apr 23, 2009 3:47 am

I am having a problem with saving the configuration. For some reason any changes I make, including entering the license key are lost when I reboot the server. Is there a way to enter the license manually so it doesn't get lost?

The ini file seems to be in a place on Your NAS, which is cleared upon reboot. This should be corrected in the startup procedure of the server by adding the parameter "-inifile <full qualified place of ini file>" to the twonkyserver startup command.

Hello,

I have the same problem.
In which file and position of the file should "-inifile <full qualified place of ini file>" be written?

I am also having this same problem with version 5.0.68. Every time I reboot my DNS-323, I lose the registration setting (I have to re-enter the registration key). Can anyone explain in some basic steps how to add the parameter "-inifile <full qualified place of ini file>" to the twonkyserver startup command?

I'll buy anyone a beer that can help me out...

Thanks all. Using the -inifile parameter works for me (using v 5.1).

torbuk: There's a file called "starttwonky.sh" that you put on your DNS-323 as part of the install process. This file is run whenever the DNS-323 is rebooted. Edit the file so that the line that currently reads:

Code: Select all

/mnt/HD_a2/twonky/twonkymedia &
becomes:

Code: Select all

/mnt/HD_a2/twonky/twonkymedia -inifile /mnt/HD_a2/twonky/twonkymedia-server.ini &
