Error 503 - fixed, but broken

Unread postby gurutech » 21 Sep 2014, 15:58

Just got the dreaded 503 error this morning, and found a thread stating that the ./db and ./db.backup folders should be deleted after stopping the Madsonic service, however I did not have a db.backup folder, so I simply renamed the db folder to db.backup and restarted Madsonic.

This worked, however the admin password reset back to "admin" (which I have changed!), and I have lost all my other user accounts, along with all my other settings - media locations, access levels, playlists, etc....

Is there any way to get these back?

these settings are stored within a file called subsonic.script or madsonic.script

this is the file operating the database ( simplified )

follow my instructions at : viewtopic.php?f=14&t=1211#p4082

think of creating a dedicated backup while messing with these files. ...

Changes at own risk : )
