    I have max2play running on a Raspberry Pi 3, delivering music to three Squeezelite clients. This is working (and it’s great). I can access the squezebox server through port 8080. However, I can’t get the max2play server itself to respond. It appears that Apache2 isn;t running. I tried:

    $ apache2ctl start

    AH00558: apache2: Could not reliably determine the server’s fully qualified domain name, using Set the ‚ServerName‘ directive globally to suppress this message
    (13)Permission denied: AH00072: make_sock: could not bind to address
    no listening sockets available, shutting down
    AH00015: Unable to open logs
    Action ’start‘ failed.
    The Apache error log may have more information.

    Any ideas?

    Hi Andy,

    There might be a port conflict. Squeezebox Server should be running default at port 9000. Did you do any manual adjustments to get it to use port 8080 and did the web interface work before?

    Sorry, my mistake: the LMS server is working as normal on port 9000 but I’m getting no response from max2play on port 8080.

    Hi Andy,

    There might some restrictions on your network that prohibit the access. Does your boot sequence (connect Pi via HDMI) show any special error messages during boot?

    I couldn’t see any easy way to resolve this so I’ve now downloaded a new image and installed it. It took a few minutes to restore my add-ons and settings but it now works fine – I have access to LMS on :9000 and max2play on :8080. Result – happiness.

    Thanks for your help,

    Thanks for the update, Andy 🙂
