Mount to SAMBA shared drive

Like NFS share, if you have music files on Windows or Samba server, you can mount a directory to the samba shared directory. Edit /etc/fstab as below:

# remountrw
# vi /etc/fstab
//192.168.1.101/public /mnt/public cifs username=,password=,file_mode=0644,dir_mode=0755,iocharset=utf8 0 0 

This assumes you have 192.168.1.101 server with a Windows/Samba shared directory named “public”. You need to provide the username and password.
Like NFS mount, create a /mnt/public directory on Voyage MPD and mount to Windows/SAMBA server. Then create a symlink so that MPD is able to search the music files under the SAMBA shared directory.

# mkdir /mnt/public
# mount –a
# ln -s /mnt/public/ /var/lib/mpd/music/public
# chmod –R ugo+r /mnt/public/

Note: If you are using Synology NAS, please use “username=<name of NAS>/admin” as user name parameter.
