How to get Mod_Mp3 to read directories?
March 6, 2005 12:19 PM   Subscribe

I'm running Apache 1.3, with the latest version of mod_mp3 to stream mp3s. It is pulling mp3s from 2 directories, one of which has a collection of mp3s not in subdirectories, and the other directory only has sub directories which contain mp3s. Mod_mp3 will read the mp3s from the first directory, but not the second one that only has subdirectories. What the duce?

Sounds like a permissions problem. Does the user Apache is running as (find out with ps aux | grep httpd, or grep apache) have read permission (ls -l on the parent directory and the root of the tree) on that directory?

Response by poster: It appears that the problem was I specified mod_mp3 to only play the filetype mp3. I removed that and it played it just fine.
