Trigger rescan of local files

How can i rescan the local files in musicbox 0.5.3.?

mopidy local scan

does not work and gives the following error:

ERROR    Unable to run command provided by disabled extension local

Probably due to Mopidy-Local-SQLite now being used…
Is there a way other than rebooting?

Ok, figured it out:

/etc/init.d/mopidy restart

Would be great to have a rescan option for local files in the settings screen.

Hey @jochen I noticed the same issue. I think I fifured out what was happening. If you look at the log - the command mopidy local scan is actually looking for its config files somewhere else:

2015-01-24 18:41:31,358 - INFO     Starting Mopidy 0.19.5
2015-01-24 18:41:34,579 - INFO     Loading config from: builtin defaults, /etc/xdg/mopidy/mopidy.conf, /root/.config/mopidy/mopidy.conf, command line options

Instead of at /etc/mopidy/mopidy.conf (where there is a symbolic link).

here is how to fix it - assuming you are ssh’d into your PiMusicBox machine as root user - run the following command to remove the old mopidy.conf and replace with a symbolic link to the musicbox version. In a terminal:

rm /root/.config/mopidy/mopidy.conf && ln -s /boot/config/settings.ini /root/.config/mopidy/mopidy.conf

After this the command mopidy local scan should work as expected!

Or, run ‘service mopidy run local scan’.


Thanks @kingosticks && @surfacescan
Both ways work! Thanks for clearing this up!
