I did the touch and then the filename from the error log. This didnt
correct the problem. I even set the the permissions the same as all
the other recordings. I then found the script mentioned above. I
tried running it and got an error about not being able to connect to
the DB so I edited the script and put the DB password in but it still
wont connect to the DB.
I did some digging and found some information that seemed like you
needed to pass some variables to the command so I tried the following.
./myth.find_orphans.pl --dbhost=192.168.1.56 --host=192.168.1.56
I didn't like what I got back. It basically said that all my
recordings where orphaned. Clearly not the correct answer.
