Octoprint and shairport-sync running at the same time


What is the problem?
If I run shairport-sync service, the octoprint web interface will not load, untill I stop the shairport-sync service. And vice versa as well.

What did you already try to solve it?
Reinstall shairport-sync, pkg update && pkg upgrade, rpi-update

Ironically, OctoPrint and ShairPort cannot share the same port. Looks like you can change the port that ShairPort uses in its configuration file:


Thank you! I changed that port to 5500 and removed the // before it, saved the file and restarted the shairport service and I have both services going now.

I'm very new to all this and am surprised I have gotten even this far. Hopefull what I did was correct and its not just a fluke!

Thank you again!
