SlimServer didn’t start under Plutohome

Two days I tried to understand why SlimServer doesn’t start under my Plutohome system. It worked fine till power was down during a couple hours four days ago. I saw in the log following output:
05 07/15/07 23:37:22.992 Trying to connect to SlimServer at address: 127.0.0.1:7890
10 07/15/07 23:37:22.993 We can't connect yet to the server. Waiting!

When I run the SlimServer manually I saw that it was killed by some reason:

dcerouter_1:/usr/pluto/servers/SlimServer# ./slimserver.pl --audiodir /home/public/data/audio -cliaddr 127.0.0.1 --cliport 7890 --d_protocol --d_cli --d_server --d_mdns

Finally I found in the .slimserver.conf (it’s placed in the /root/bck/root/) that the cache directory is /root. I changed it to /var/cache and after that the SlimServer started successfully!
