New install, but no MythWeb

Post by MythicalManMonth » Sat Sep 15, 2018 8:53 pm

I just installed Xubuntu 18.04.1 and MythTV, following the helpful instructions here: (this forum)/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=2788

It seemed to go pretty well - I have installed MythTV many times over the years, so I know most of what needs to be done even though 0.29 has certainly changed the backend configuration. I didn't see an option for 'Backend Only', but that is how I will use this system.

MythBackend is running:

However, Apache appears to not be installed, 'dpkg -l | grep apache' returns nothing.

MythFrontend works if I launch it, and I can see the guide data. I didn't try to watch anything; this isn't a high-powered machine.

What must I do to get MythWeb running on my master backend?

Did you try "sudo apt install mythweb" ?
If you did, it is also possible that the package may install a different web server, for example nginx.

SOLVED: New install, but no MythWeb

Thank you! I hadn't seen any instructions to do that; it works now.

BTW, with no recordings scheduled the 'Recording Schedules' page throws an error:

"Warning at /usr/share/mythtv/mythweb/modules/tv/classes/Schedule.php, line 106:
!!NoTrans: count(): Parameter must be an array or an object that implements Countable!!"

Not a huge problem, but probably worth noting and fixing.
