Quickstart

The following steps will get you going. For a more permanent setup and further options, also see the general Setup guide.

  1. Install Python.

  2. [Download] (http://www.cherrypy.org/) the latest release of CherryPy and Unzip

  3. Open a console:

    • Press [Windows Key] + [R].
    • Type cmd and then press [Enter].
    • Navigate to your CherryPy folder:
    • cd \path\to\cherrypy
    • Run python setup.py install in the CherryPy directory.
  4. Download the latest release of CherryMusic and unzip.

  5. Open a console:

    • Press [Windows Key] + [R].
    • Type cmd and then press [Enter].
  6. Navigate to your CherryMusic folder: cd \path\to\cherrymusic

  7. Run python cherrymusic --setup --port 8080 in the CherryMusic directory.

  8. Go to http://localhost:8080 for basic configuration and later the web client.

  9. From then on, run python cherrymusic to start the server.

To make further changes to the CherryMusic configuration, modify the following file: C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\cherrymusic\cherrymusic.conf

Replace USERNAME with your user name.

Autostart

Note: The preferred method to automatically start CherryMusic on boot is via NSSM. If VBS is used, it might be necessary to add the *.py suffix to the executable, so that Windows recognizes the file type. However, in this case a symlink (with the added *.py suffix) to the executable is recommended (instead of renaming), as it will leave the update process with Git intact.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
