I have an issue with two versions of the same album, one with two discs and one with one disc. Minimserver merges the two albums into one.

The directories are:
  • Led Zeppelin (1969) [reissue 1995]
  • Led Zeppelin (1969) [reissue 2014]

Metadata for the 1995 reissue
  • DISCNUMBER = 1
  • TOTALDISCS = 1
Metadata for the 2014 reissue
  • DISCNUMBER = 1 or 2
  • TOTALDISCS = 2
  • DISCSUBTITLE = "Led Zepplin" or "Live at the Olympia"

Minimserver settings
  • mergeFolderAlbums=false

Any clue at what to do to disambiguate the two albums?

The albums are being merged because this is the default for multidisc albums with the same album name. To prevent this merging, you can add a match filter to the folder names as described in this section.
Thanks adding the quotes ['reissue 1995'] worked.
