AI1 Installer - No mythweb?

Post by bambamf16 » Tue Sep 25, 2018 6:17 am

I finally got the All-in-one installer to get a working mythtv backend (all my fault, I had previous mysql, and initially used prebuilt packages). That is behind me now, but none of the directories or files indicated in the MacPorts Mythweb are there. It doesn't seem like anything but Mythbackend was installed.

I am sure this is my issue, but what am I missing?

Thanks,

jeff

You are following these instructions, right?

https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/MythWeb_via_MacPorts

Please copy/paste the transcript from the Terminal session where you attempt to follow the steps.

Remember: "Any errors will report a message; successful completion just returns the command prompt."

Yes, the directions on that page. Here are the results:

MacMini:~ mythtv$ sudo cp -np /opt/dvr/sbin/envvars-std /opt/dvr/sbin/envvars
Password:
cp: /opt/dvr/sbin/envvars-std: No such file or directory
MacMini:~ mythtv$ sudo cp -np /opt/dvr/etc/apache2/original/httpd.conf /opt/dvr/etc/apache2/httpd.conf
cp: /opt/dvr/etc/apache2/original/httpd.conf: No such file or directory
MacMini:~ mythtv$ sudo cp -np /opt/dvr/etc/apache2/original/extra/* /opt/dvr/etc/apache2/extra/
cp: directory /opt/dvr/etc/apache2/extra does not exist
MacMini:~ mythtv$ cd /opt/dvr/lib/apache2/modules
-bash: cd: /opt/dvr/lib/apache2/modules: No such file or directory
MacMini:~ mythtv$ sudo /opt/dvr/bin/apxs -a -e -n "php5" mod_php54.**
sudo: /opt/dvr/bin/apxs: command not found
MacMini:~ mythtv$ sudo chmod 666 /opt/dvr/etc/apache2/httpd.conf
chmod: /opt/dvr/etc/apache2/httpd.conf: No such file or directory
MacMini:~ mythtv$

Thanks for you help, Jeff

PS. ** is the remove so

So, you got the installer from:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/macpor ... ler/files/

If you have the backend running, then hundreds of MB of stuff had to be installed onto your machine. There are no options--it always goes to the same locations. I can't explain how the MythWeb bits might be missing.

What are the contents under '/opt/dvr' ? Did you move or rename part of the tree?

I got the file from the link on this page: https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/MacPorts

Here is the ls from /opt/dvr:

MacMini:~ mythtv$ cd /opt/dvr
MacMini:dvr mythtv$ ls
Library apache2 bin etc include lib libexec sbin share var
MacMini:dvr mythtv$

I did not move or rename anything that I am aware of.

I just did an ls -R and found some interesting things.

1. The envars-std exists but it is in the bin folder not sbin
2. The httpd.conf file is in /opt/dvr/conf/original not /opt/dvr/etc/apache2/original

The ls -R output for the /opt/dvr folder is attached (if I can figure out how to do that).

I also should say, Web Frontend is working splendidly, so I am not sure how much more I gain by Mythweb other than personal satisfaction.

I think you've installed Myth _0.27_ not 0.28. You can confirm by running 'mythutil --version'.

A key change between the two versions was that the MacPorts layout for Apache2 changed. If you want to continue with 0.27, you can follow an old version of the MythWeb install instructions:

https://www.mythtv.org/wiki?title=MythW ... ldid=63899

Otherwise, you should be able to migrate to 0.28 and then follow the current version of the MythWeb configuration instructions.

That is weird, here is the name of the file I downloaded:

mythtv.28-0.28.1-Fixes-20170201_1.mpkg 340.9 MB

How do I run the mythutil command? I am in the /opt/dvr/bin folder and it won't do anything (command not found).

Thanks again.

In Terminal...

Code: Select all

cd /opt/dvr/bin
mythutil --version
or from anywhere

Code: Select all

/opt/dvr/bin/mythutil --version

So, mythutil is the third last entry. Regardless, by the dates, I can see that you have 0.28. I can't explain why the MythWeb stuff doesn't appear to be in the only location where the installer can put it.

Stop the backend, run the installer again and then try to continue with setup.

Hello,

I've been building my own version of the MacPorts install rather than using the All-in-One version - I've got MythWeb working fine, but I needed to adapt some of the directions on https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/MythWeb_via_MacPorts to get it to work.

I've been meaning to make some changes to that page to reflect my adaptations for a while - I'll try and do it over the next couple of days.

Pants.
