@DrWaluigi: Your fix worked. Thank you. As I see the package being updated through pacman, the permissions error is all over the place in the package. I assume the vendor directory is the only one that is newly created, since 3.8.4, so it gets 700 permissions.

Anyway, @max-k: I think you can fix this in the package quite easily. So, if you can find the time, please do. Thank you in advance. :)

There are permission issues on /usr/share/webapps/ampache/lib/vendor/. Some folders are not readable by non-root users. To fix these issues:

chmod u=rwX,g=rX,o=rX -R /usr/share/webapps/ampache/lib/vendor/

Well, my upgrade to 3.8.4 doesn't go quite as expected. When I installed 3.8.4, all I got was a blank screen in y webbrowser. Downgrade to 3.8.3 resolved the issue.

I haven't looked into it very deeply, but I don't see any errors in the logs.

I'm using nginx with a nginx reverse-proxy in front of it. Doe anyone experience the same issue?

I've taken a look and the file seems to be here :

$ pacman -Qlp ampache-3.8.2-4-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz |grep nginx
ampache /usr/share/doc/ampache/nginx-example.conf

I don't know why it isn't on your filesystem.

Could you try to run pacman -Ql ampache |grep nginx ?

During the post-install, this message appears:
"An nginx example vhost in provided in /usr/share/doc/ampache/nginx-example.conf"

The example nginx config isn't there, I was only able to find it within pacaur's cache of ampache.

Hi, the architecture should be arch=('any') because is a web-app. Thanks.

max-k commented on 2016-05-20 14:25

This is done since 3.8.2-2 (2016-04-20).
Thank you.

It'd be great if this package was following the Guidelines for packaging web applications:

Basically, install the files under /usr/share/webapps instead of /srv/http. These are the common guidelines for almost all other web applications in ArchLinux. Thanks for making the change.

The version in the PKGBUILD is 3.7, but you still seem to be pulling 3.6alpha6 from git. Why not just used the tagged release?

techno-geek commented on 2014-04-04 22:15

Just use ampache-git

I spent some time trying to update the ampache package. You can see the results here:

this package seems outdated. I use following PKGBUILD to build ampache:

My only problem is, that it raises a 500 if I try to access it and the error log of apache is empty. Does anybody knew that issue?

Hi darude!

I'm sorry to say that I'll be orphaning this package since I haven't been using it for a real long time. But I think that it'll be a simple addition to add git support.

If anyone want's to take take of this awesome application feel free to adopt it!

darude commented on 2013-04-04 12:07

Hello there,
I've experienced that installing ampache doesn't work.
After some investigation I found out, the link to the .tar.gz points directly to the to gihub repo for ampache.
Maybe the PKGBUILD could be modified that it git pulls ampache from there instead trying to download the non-existent .tar.gz.
This is already done for various other projects like sickbeard etc.

thanks and bye :)

Thank you antlo628, I've updated the package.

Won't work with php>=5.4. See

Hello wido!

Yes, that is a link to the 3.6 alpha of Ampache and I'm guessing that you want me to update the package. But as you probably missed, and according to the wiki , This AUR-package houses the most current stable Ampache-package and will only move to the 3.6-branch when it has a release that is branded stable.

Thanks unhammer, I've updated the package accordingly.

unhammer commented on 2011-02-09 13:21

also, oggdec is in the package vorbis-tools, without that the default transcoding options don't work

unhammer commented on 2011-02-09 12:18

faad is called faad2, and there is no oggsplt (although mp3split says it does ogg too)
