Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS
pandorafms.console_6.0SP4.deb - Installed
Logged into console in browser. Made it successfully through to being given the random password to edit the .conf file
plexmediaserver_1.3.3.3148-b38628e_amd64.deb - Installed
Went to /etc and could not find the 'pandora' folder to go edit the .conf file

Any idea what I have done wrong?
Thanks in Advance,

Hello ronybigsoc,

Try executing the following command to see where the configuration file is:

Code: [Select]
find / -name pandora_server.conf
Kind regards,
Antonio.

** as you can guess I am very UNfamiliar with linux, but am learning **

Your command spat out a list, much like the following:

find: `/boot/lost+found': Permission denied
find: `/sys/kernel/debug': Permission denied
find: `/proc/tty/driver': Permission denied
find: `/proc/1/task/1/fd': Permission denied
find: `/proc/1/task/1/fdinfo': Permission denied
find: `/proc/1/task/1/ns': Permission denied
find: `/proc/1/fd': Permission denied
find: `/proc/1/map_files': Permission denied
find: `/proc/1/fdinfo': Permission denied
find: `/proc/1/ns': Permission denied
....and so on....

So, I assumed I needed to run it with 'sudo':

xxxxxx@Plex-Server:~$ sudo find / -name pandora_server.conf
[sudo] password for xxxxxx:
xxxxxx@Plex-Server:~$

ABOVE IS ALL IT DID. IT JUST RETURNED ME TO THE PROMPT.

Thanks in Advance,

If the find command was unable to find the file, the component pandora_server may not be installed or not properly installed. Can you try launching the server daemon?  Try executing this command:

Code: [Select]
/etc/init.d/pandora_server start
I would suggest you to do it again, you can follow these guides:

Hope that helps.

Kind regards,
Antonio.

Okay. I ran the command and 'No such file or directory'

I'm going to re-install using your instructions and report back.

Thanks in Advance,
