I'm trying to build a server with minidlna installed. Installation worked fine, but having it run on startup is more problematic. I added minidlna to my rc.local, and now on boot I get log messages stating:

minidlna.c:132: error: bind(http): Address already in use minidlna.c:1004: fatal: Failed to open socket for HTTP. EXITING

I have tried setting the bind device (eth0), and changing the port, which is now 8300 instead of 8200. All in vain. And, even more unsettling: when I start minidlna manually from the terminal, it runs just fine. This makes me suspect the config is not the problem; I just cannot figure out what is. Could somebody give me a suggestion?

Thanks a million!
