Xbmc tv show library not updating
In order for Kodi to communicate effectively across your home network, we need to instruct it to use an external My SQL database.Before we get to that step, however, you’ll need to make an executive decision: you can either back up your current library and restore it later (which can sometimes be finicky), or you can start fresh with a new library (which is easy but will require you to re-set the watched state on your shows, and possibly re-choose your artwork if you don’t store it locally).On the next screen, check Modify Security Settings, plug in a new root password, and check Enable root access from remote machines.Click through to the final screen and press Execute to let the wizard set everything up with the parameters you’ve specified. Next, it’s time to create a user account on the My SQL server for your media centers. To start, run the My SQL Command Line Client—you should have an entry for it in your Start Menu.At the prompt, type the following commands, pressing Enter after each one, to create a user on the database server: The first portion of the first command creates the user, the second portion creates the password.
Once you’ve backed up the library (or opted to not worry about it and start from scratch), you’re ready to point Kodi to your My SQL server. Regardless of whether you’re editing the existing one or create a new one, cut and paste the following text into the file (note: if there are already some entries in your file, leave those in place and put these values within the correct sections): Edit the above text to reflect the IP address of your server on your LAN and the username/password of your My SQL database (in our example, it was just kodi/kodi).
If you want to back up your current library, you can do so from within Kodi.
