Making the web interface configuration page "configurable"

If you notice that your Configuration page on the web interface (available by web browser at <linkstation-ip>:3689/config.html) won't allow you to make changes, then you may need to adjust permissions on the configuration file. The very first entry on the Configuration page lists the location of this file, usually at /etc/mt-daapd.conf . To make the web configuration work, cd to the directory where this configuration file is and modify the permissions of the file:

cd /etc
chown nobody mt-daapd.conf 
chmod 600 mt-daapd.conf 

Reload the web Configuration page and it should work now. This is a method suggested by an expert at Firefly Forums.
