Good day. New user here. 

Yesterday I setup Emby through the internet browser. Loaded my libraries fixed my metadata. Today I opened the setup.exe file for emby server while trying to install The Emby Theatre. it took me to the setup page I re-put in my login information and it is like it created a new server and now i am unable to access my first server I built.Says cant connect but does show it in app.emby.media. 

Before in dashboard showed all my activity and sign in with roku box. Now shows nothing Now it is like I just made the account. How do I get back the original server. And everytime i open the localhost am I at risk for creating a new server?

Why did you run the setup.exe again?  Did you by chance install Emby under a different user account?

It was setup.exe for the emby theater as well. As soon as opened it it went to the login on the browser. I used the same information as it was a saved form for username and password.
