Managed to trash my server somehow in one move, made one setting change (public https port number) in the process of setting up https in advanced, saved setting, clicked restart, and it hung there without restarting.
Did system reboot, etc. all the standard stuff, app would seem to run, but refused to stay open when attempting to open dashboard, could see it drop out of processes in Activity Monitor when accessed. Tried reinstall of latest package, still no joy.
The only thing I could think of as a factor is the machine OS was recently updated to 10.12.5, but emby seemed to be working fine after that update until I tried the config change/restart.
Tried restoring emby app and emby-server files in ~/.config using Time Machine backup from yesterday, no dice.
On the theory of it being an issue with 10.12.5, I did a complete system restore from yesterday prior to the update to bring it back to 10/12.4, and that didn't work either.
So, I trashed the app file and the emby-server config file again, and started an install from scratch. That seems to be working just fine, but it's going to take me several hours to get back to where I was, and will have lost track of a bunch off-air recording data, etc.
What is going on here that I'm missing in terms of where files are located? And why is this config so difficult to restore from a backup?
