Solved: No Files In MPD (eg mpc ls)

I was doing my initial “is it working?” tests after reinstalling mpc, and mpc ls was not giving me any output. ncmpc was also showing no files. What I didn’t appreciate was that the music database is no populated by default- you have to issue an “update” command manually (or semi-manually by running a client that issues the command for you).

mpc update

and your directories should be searched!
