    I haven't decided on installing OMV yet because I've got two HDDs with one volume EXT4 each.
    A 3rd HDD is for the OS, so far this has been a plain Lubuntu. And this could be for OMV on a new setup.
    BUT- will OMV require me to reformat the two storage drives, in which case all data will be lost (or will have to find a temporary place). Not keen on that.
    So can storage drives be mounted after installation without reformatting them?

    Hi everybody,

    First I would like to thank all of people involved in OpenMediaVault project for your hard work. Thanks to you I decided to revive my old PC and make it my personal cloud. However I have run into some nginx trouble during the setup. I followed guides NextCloud Installation and but I am stuck at trying to call Nextcloud installation via browser. I installed omv4 on Debian 9. I disabled and later purged apache2 package as it was interfering with omv installation - ngixng package. I installed OMV-Extra plugins and used it to get nginx and mysql plugins. I also installed php7.0-curl/gd/zip. My current confings are:

    Hi, first - sry for my English, I hope that you understand what I write here...

    I downloaded Armbian from here: , "Ubuntu desktop - legacy kernel", is it correct? Or I should download "debian server - mainline kernel"?
    I formatted my SD card and wrote image on it. Armbian works fine, I added repository of OMV, did apt-get update and installed few packages one-by-one: postfix, php, but I have problems with apt-get install openmediavault.
    There is an error like this:

    root@bananapi:/home/artur# apt-get install openmediavault
