TeamTalk lost everything

Hi, everyone,

I realize that TeamTalk is a third party application, but finding any forums or usable sources is a pain. So, I'm going to ask this here, in hopes that someone knows what to do. 

I set up TeamTalk on a virtual machine with 60GB of disk space. No problem there, except I didn't specify a disk quota, so we weren't able to upload files. We created about 30 users and eight channels on the server. The channels were all designated as permanent... Fast forward to today.

I decided to fix the XML file and set the disk quota. I went into the virtual machine and used nano to update the XML file that is referenced in the service (/etc/teamtalk/tt5srv.xml). The only change I made was to change the disk quota from 0 to 99999999 (as per an issue on their github repository). I used sudo systemctl restart tt5srv.service and restarted it...

I'm the only user listed in the accounts, and the only channel that survived is the one I was in. And that's most likely because I had reconnect to my last channel enabled. Everyone and everything is gone.

So, my questions are these:
1. What did I do wrong?
2. Earlier today, I clicked the "Save Server Configuration" option in the windows client. Did that not save it? Or did it save it somewhere else?
3. What do I have to do to make sure all of our changes last through a restart of the server?
4. Aside from filing an issue in their Github repository, where would you recommend going for information on TeamTalk?

Thanks, and have a great night. :)
Patrick.

A clarification

I added both the usernames and the channels to the XML file and copied it back to /etc/teamtalk. When I started the server again, all of the usernames appeared in the server, but only the main / channel showed up in the channels list. So, I know something is wrong with my XML code for the channels section.

Have a great day. :)
Patrick.

Final update (I hope)

Hi, everyone,

So, I have it working, just not how I envisioned it to. I ended up moving the XML file to the teamtalk user's home directory and creating a log file in there as well. I was able to create the channels and get everything set up. So, it is a permissions issue. It works, but it's not how it *should* work (in that my log isn't in /var/log/teamtalk, but in /home/teamtalk/log). So, if anyone has suggestions on how to fix the permissions issues, I would greatly appreciate that.

Thank you for your help and have a great day. :)
Patrick.
