Default Help with ncmpcpp please

I've done pkg_add with mpd, mpc and ncmpcpp and enabled the mpd daemon.
I've read the man pages for all and reviewed a post by Shep at:


For ~/.mpdconf I set music_directory as "~/Music" and left the rest as defaults.
For ~/.ncmpcpp/config I set mpd_music_directory as ~/Music and left the rest as defaults.

When i start ncmpcpp I'm in a blank playlist screen with "connected to localhost" at the bottom".
Hitting #2 brings me to a blank Browse: / screen. Hitting #2 again brings up a message:

"For browsing local filesystem connection to MPD via Unix Socket is required"

If I do doas mpd, I get:

exception: failed to bind to ''
exception:nested:Failed to bind socket:Address already in use

At this point I am stuck and would appreciate any assistance.

Thank you
