Thank you for this advice. Mine was called Addons27.db which was size 0. As soon as it was deleted osmc recreated the file and all is working good now.:slight_smile:

Thanks, deleting all old .db files fixed the problem.

I had this as well so thanks for this thread. Deleting Addons27.db worked for me.

Hi @gizzalucy. Probably an absolute noob question but having the same problem (sad face loop after update) and wondered how you deleted the addons27.db file? Did you do this via windows? As in by putting the SD card in and open the database folder and delete and delete the file?

Thanks :slight_smile:

Access OSMC via SSH (putty) than you can delete files

Details regarding how to access the command line interface can be found here on our Wiki:

Thanks a lot mate, ill read them and give that a try :blush:

I did it via a remote connection (ssh) using the Linux rm command. rm is the delete command.

As fzinken says you have a bit of learning to do.

Use a free Windows program called putty to login to your pi over the network. Then you have to type in commands to delete the file.
I did it this way:

cd .kodi/userdata/Database
dir -l
rm Addons27.db

Capitals are important. Addons27.db could be any number, that’s why I used the dir -l command (Iower case L) to list the files.

Thanks @gizzalucy. Really appreciate the help guys, will give that a try later on tonight.

Or you can install program called winscp that let’s you broswe through osmc folders and delete. can also drag drop files from PC to osmc. Much easier

Hello,How do i find my osmc ip address from my laptop? Thanks

Check the webpage of your home router. It should indicate which IP address was handed out by DHCP.

If you have an android phone try Fing. Very useful app that will tell you lots of info about your network.

I got the Isp from router home page :relaxed:

Used the winscp tool to search the name and it came up pretty quickly and then I was able to delete and all is working well.
