How can I edit my music metadata (id3 tags)? How can I rename/move my files?
With Navidrome you can’t. Navidrome does not write to you music folder or the files by design. It may have capabilities to change/add cover art for artists, albums and playlists in the future, but even then it won’t write these images to your Music Folder or embed them in the files.
The main reason for this is security: With an internet-facing software like Navidrome, users would only be one exploit away from all their music getting deleted.
How can I manually trigger a re-scan in Navidrome
Currently rescanning must be done via the command line:
navidrome scan --datafolder="C:\path\to\datafolder" [-f]
datafolder is where you can find the
navidrome.db database. Use
-f to scan all folders (not only the ones with detected changes)
docker-compose with the official Docker build, the
datafolder options is already set, you can use the following command:
docker-compose exec navidrome /app/navidrome scan [-f]
An option to force scan via the UI is under development. More information can be found in Issue #130.
Where are the logs?
To achieve maximum compatibility with a great number of platforms, Navidrome follows the Twelve Factor App methodology
as much as possible. Specifically in the case of logs, Navidrome does not try to do any storage or routing of
any log files, it only outputs all information to
stdout, making it easy for the proper logging tools in each platform to handle them.
Some examples bellow:
Docker: you can use
docker-compose logsto retrieve/follow the logs.
Windows: if you install Navidrome as a service using Shawl, just check the
shawl_for_navidrome_*.logfiles created in the same location as the Shawl executable
