[SOLVED] Airtime not adding media to library
  • Hi there,
    I have installed Airtime on a clean Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS virtual machine. I am able to login to the web interface and work with it, however uploading media to the server is a problem. It says that is has uploaded successfully, however I cannot see the files on the server under /home/kyle/airtime/ (Which is my media folder), nor is it listed in the library.

    Sudo airtime-check-system returns:

    ubuntu 14 is not supported yet. just read manual.
    try ubuntu 12.04 or debian wheezy with automated installation http://sourcefabric.booktype.pro/airtime-25-for-broadcasters/automated-installation/
    and be sure to use php5.4 (NOT 5.5) and apache 2.2
    there are several threads here about this topic, just search for v-host or php5.4

    most common issue nowadays

    Most of the time an issue is located between keyboard and chair.
  • I have it running on 14.04. Not for the feint hearted. But you do a manual install, and fiddle a bit with the repository lists, The lastest running files, from the Git, work here on php 5.5.
    You just have to make a new apache virtual host file and a sample is provided in the Manual install docs.

    No longer using Airtime or Libretime.
  • Hi John,

    Do you have a more detailed overview of what you did? I know changing the virtual host file, but what repo changes did you have to make?

  • Hmm.. From memory I had to add the Universe repo source and Liquidsoap's repo (different later version required)
    No longer using Airtime or Libretime.
  • I have managed to get it working - the virtual host given in the manual works and PHP 5.5 is supported. I cloned the git repo and did a minimal install. Once that is complete I needed to edit /etc/apache2/ports.conf adding "NameVirtualHost *80" to the top of the file. Restarted the server and all sorted
