huge mpd.log file

Hello,
On my working system, I have a problem due to a full SD card. I realised that it was due to a enormous mpd.log file. I erased it and restart the system to see what happen. Below a example of what is written in the file :

Mar 28 12:21 : client: [0] opened from 127.0.0.1:46544

and it carry on up to fill the sd card. I don’t know what could cause that. Any idea ?

Hi,

Add this line to /etc/mpd.conf:
log_level “default”

The only problem is that it will be erased if you configure playback with the Web interface.

Hi,

thanks Stephane for the solution.

For people looking for a solution consistent after reboot (and not afraid about coding), you can edit the “mpd-config.php” file and add twice the line “cfgdb_update(‘cfg_mpd’,$dbh,$element[‘param’],$element[‘value_default’]);” as shown below

sudo nano mpd-config.php

// handle (reset) if (isset($_POST['reset']) && $_POST['reset'] == 1) { $mpdconfdefault = cfgdb_read('',$dbh,'mpdconfdefault'); foreach($mpdconfdefault as $element) { cfgdb_update('cfg_mpd',$dbh,$element['param'],$element['value_default']); } // Disable too much logging cfgdb_update('cfg_mpd',$dbh,'log_level','default');

// handle POST if(isset($_POST['conf']) && !empty($_POST['conf'])) { foreach ($_POST['conf'] as $key => $value) { cfgdb_update('cfg_mpd',$dbh,$key,$value); } // Disable too much logging cfgdb_update('cfg_mpd',$dbh,'log_level','default');

Then go to Menu / Playback : change one setting and save for the change to be effective
