Alright running that now but I can't find the log file and it's showing no video files now when I connect

EDIT: Manually restarting the service seems to have fixed showing no files, but it's still not logging (that I can see?) and I've checked permissions on the folders

EDIT 2: And now playing anything fails and crashes the server

What is the output of these commands when run against the downloaded and renamed jar file?

Code: Select all
ls -lh pms.jar
md5sum pms.jar

Try to find the JVM error file.

As far as I can tell there is no error file in the locations specified at that link and from other google resources

Shut down any PMS services on the server. Open a console and run the PMS.sh script in the directory you saved the pms.jar to. If PMS starts, then there will be a debug.log. If not, there should be a JVM error file or an error message on the console.

Uhm there's no PMS.sh script... I saved it to /usr/lib/ps3mediaserver

In the PPA, it's /usr/bin/ps3mediaserver.

Don't post images. Post the text output as described in the link I posted (at the bottom).

Don't run PMS (or anything else, for that matter) as root.
