MythWeb provides a frontend for scheduling and managing recordings on your MythBox from a web browser located on another machine. In addition it allows for changing key bindings and other settings.

Numerous improvements have been added since its inception, so that MythWeb now provides access to much of the content from the various plugins.

Indeed, many functions you might want to perform on your MythBox are faster or easier through MythWeb. (How much this is true, of course, depends to some degree on what version you're running.)

See MythWeb_readme for install details.

One contributed favicon is File:Favicon.jpg (it's really a .ico file; see the page).


If you install or upgrade MythWeb and your web browser gives you garbage instead of a pretty page, find the apache/htdocs/mythweb/.htaccess file and comment out (with a # sign) the three lines which begin php_value zlib.. (This note doesn't actually belong here, but I didn't want it to get lost, since I had to rummage in the mailing list to find it again. --Baylink 22:10, 7 October 2006 (UTC))


If MythWeb is secured it will use the logged in username to record the mythweb settings including the template/skin. This is great if you are browsing mythweb from different PCs but will bypass the detection of mobile (wap/wml) devices. A simple workaround is to ensure you setup a different userid to authenticate with from your phone. --Lwoggardner 12:08, 14 October 2006 (UTC)


If you have edited your .htaccess db values to match your mysql.txt file and still cannot connect to database you may have mysql database problems. Try: GRANT ALL ON mythconverg.* TO mythtv@localhost IDENTIFIED BY 'mythtv'; WITH GRANT OPTION; FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
