myMPD instructions give this information concerning SSL

1.Create ca and certificate /usr/share/mympd/crcert.sh (mkrelease.sh does this for you).
2.Set ssl=true in /etc/mympd/mympd.conf (use default certificate under /etc/mympd/ssl/).
3.Import /etc/mympd/ssl/ca/ca.pem in your browser to trust the certificate.
4.myMPD redirects http requests to https, ensure that myMPD hostname is resolvable

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It appears that #3 requires me to 'IMPORT' the ssl certificate into my browser....however gives no instructions on just how to do that.

Any ideas??

Thanks for the link WarHawk, nope doesn't look like thats it either....I am familiar with that process, but I don't get that option or page.

FWIW I do 'think' it sees the mympd web server 'but' access is always denied.

I also noticed that one of the RUN files outlines on the myMPD github page is not in Dietpi

Run Flags
Usage: ./mympd /etc/mypd/mympd.conf

Looks like it needs the two of them, I do see the mympd.conf but not the ./mympd


Thanks for all your help, but I also think the Dev needs to take a look at this....

Good News!

Its not just Dietpi....

I installed myMPD manually unto a fresh install. Dependencies etc all installed and still the same issue.

I was able to connect to MPD with an external client with no problem but myMPD had the same issue. I opened up a ticket at the mympd github but they quickly closed it....I know 90% of the time support thinks it DFUE.

No worries, I gave it good effort to try and make it work....it didn't, no forum for myMPD, no support so I am moving on.... :o

However, if I were Dietpi dev I would consider removing it from the software list. myMPD does not live up to the ease of use and robustness that 'should be' and IS to a lot of people as Dietpi's trademark and brand image. Not only mympd but any software that is not robust and easy to use reflects bad on Dietpi as users rightfully or wrongfully blame Dietpi.....seeing that its in 'your' bundle.

Just a thought. :)

Thanks Edward,

Yep, i'll open a ticket to review this software title, and, verify non-DietPi issue:

Okay Great!!!

I'll give it a go and see how it turns out.

Wow I was beating my head on the walls for days about this..... :P


So let me ask you....can I actually put the MPD computer IP and port in the mympd.conf file and use 1333 as the mympd port?

And did you actually see the mympd GUI with your own two eyes in a browser? :D :?

Not quite ready.

Now we have ownership issues.

Dietpi owns the samba drive
MPD is the user for MPD therefore I can't connect to the music unless I change user to dietpi or root
But if I change the MPD user to dietpi or root, mympd doesn't connect to MPD

Hello everybody!

I ran into the same problem, reread the thread, tried the suggested solutions, but nothing helped. ssl is still not working. Version DietPi v6.19.7
The usual connection to mympd works, but it does not see the music base, but only the directory tree. If I enable

Code: Select all

ssl = true
, then the browser cannot connect to mympd at all.

Help me please.

Sorry for bad english, i use google translator.

Special thanks to the developers of DietPi for a wonderful product!

Hello from Russia! :)
