"Removing stale /var/run/mediabrowser.pid" when starting

error permissions

Best Answer thefirstofthe300 , 28 February 2015 - 04:48 PM

Simply running the above command as root will do it.

sudo service mediabrowser start

What is happening is that your user doesn't have the permissions necessary to actually start MediaBrowser so you need to elevate your privileges.

I just installed media browser and following the tutorial, it tells me to do "service mediabrowser start"

I get this after typing it.

 

service mediabrowser start
Removing stale /var/run/mediabrowser.pid
rm: remove write-protected regular file ‘/var/run/mediabrowser.pid’? y
rm: cannot remove ‘/var/run/mediabrowser.pid’: Permission denied
start-stop-daemon: unable to open pidfile '/var/run/mediabrowser.pid' for writing (Permission denied)
 

How can I fix this? Thanks
