Quick one for those that have got it to work…

Where is the config file that is used for the server? Is it /etc/mopidy/mopidy.conf? It seems to be where ‘ps -aux’ tells me the command line thinks it is but I wanted to check - it doesn’t have values in there for my spotify account but the Iris UI tells me I am logged in. (I’m not looking to be able to use Spotify - I mention it only as it suggests I may have an incorrect file location for the config)

Also, local files… Has anyone got them to appear in the UI? From the config mentioned above I tracked the folder down and popped a few files in there. I then ran ‘mopidy --config /etc/mopidy/mopidy.conf local scan’ which did a successful scan, found the files and added the details to the json.tgz file, but they just won’t appear in the UI.

I suspect foolishness on my part, but I’d appreciate any help.


I highly recommend you read the mopidy doc… as far as I can tell the result of your local files scanning would populate some files only relevant when mopidy is ran as the pi user.

Check for details.


Oh, the old cheating trick of reading the docs, eh? I see. ;)

So instead of running

mopidy --config /etc/mopidy/mopidy.conf local scan

I tried

sudo mopidyctl local scan

And guess what? Files show up.

Thank you.
