8 - To create startup script we need to exit debian

exit

echo "" >>/opt/etc/chroot-services.list
echo "S98minidlna-debian" >>/opt/etc/chroot-services.list
chmod 755 /opt/etc/chroot-services.list

10 - Start minidlna from outside debian together with mounted external folder

debian restart

12 - Go to 192.168.1.1:8200 (this is the default router ip, modify to your router ip if you change it previously) and see how minidlna is creating db, press refresh on your browser for progress.

If all numbers are 0 (zero) after some time, you forget to set the right path to your media folder, read again point 4 from here
