Making your FreeBSD server serve music for your Apple OSX clients and others with iTunes installed.
Install the port:
Edit the config file:
Set the servername line to whatever name your what to see in your iTunes:
Set the line starting with mp3_dir to the directory of your music collection.
As I have multiple folders with music in, I kept the original line, and then symlinked my music folders into that directory instead:
and then I have:
ln -s /mnt/tolv.data1/Music /usr/local/share/mt-daapd/Music1
ln -s /mnt/tolv.data2/Music /usr/local/share/mt-daapd/Music2
ls -l /usr/local/share/mt-daapd/
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root daapd 21 Aug 2 14:54 Music1 -> /mnt/tolv.data1/Music
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root daapd 18 Aug 2 14:54 Music2 -> /mnt/tolv.data2/Music
It makes one big collection when it turns up in iTunes anyway..
Add to rc.conf:
