Problem: How to recover the database files by pi/moodeaudio, without the password of root?
#1
Dears,

I want to recover my database files to Moode, but pi/moodeaudio has not the right to upload the files, with the error message of Permission Denied.

I wonder what is the password for user "root" that I can fix my problem.

Thanks a lot.

Transfer files to pi's home directory as the pi user
SSH into your Pi and mv the files as the root user using sudo, e.g.

Code:
sudo mv somefile /some/destination

It they're mpd files you'll also need to change ownership back to the mpd user, e.g...
Code:
sudo chown -R mpd:audio /var/lib/mpd

Thanks, Vinnn.

You mean I should upload the files into pi's folder at first, and


Code:
sudo mv database /var/lib/mpd/database -f

sudo mv libcache.json /var/local/www/libcache.json -f

sudo chown -R mpd:audio /var/lib/mpd


Correct?

Correct?

Yes but you don't need the -f option and you put it in the wrong place anyway.
Command options generally go after the command, not after the arguments.

I tried, but it seems that this kind of recovery action is only workable in the same Moode version or same Moode equipment, as I tried to recover the database from Rock64 in Moode 5.2 into Pi3B in Moode 6.4.2 and failed.

Boom.
