    Hi,

    For a couple of days I am running an Orange Pi Zero Plus (OPI0+) together with an external USB 2.0 HDD (Western Digital) as a mini NAS. I installed an OMV ISO image based on Armbian.

    The HDD has a separate power adapter, independent from the OPI0+. The OPI0+ has very little power consumption, particularly in idle. The power cable/adapter of the Western Digital HDD is plugged into a remote Wi-Fi (WLAN) power plug, which can be turned off and on - from almost everywhere.

    Would it be okay to turn off the HDD power, means to turn off only the HDD, when I don't use the NAS?

    Remarks: I will use the HDD very rarely. The power consumption of the HDD is much higher than the OPI0+. An OPI0+ shut down, via OMV, causes a permanent shut down. It keeps on being off, even after turning on the power plug, means it doesn't boot. It boots only, if I remove the micro-USB cable/adapter at the OPI0+ and plug it in again.

    Thanks for your advise,
    Joe

    I have an HPn40L running as NAS with OMV, and besides the 4 permanent drives i have inside, i intend to be using hot swappable drives, for easy in and out access. Last time i added a drive for one use operation, it caused some problems since it checked for it during boot time and output warnings that it wasnt there, etc which caused me to esit the fstab and messed thigns up further.

    Anyway that was eventually taken care of, but my qestion now is How do i add drives, and mount them and have access to the shares, without having the system nag me that it doesnt find them durring starup, or that the contain bad blocks and the such. Its mighty important for me

    Quote from krutojmax: “Using the webroot path / for all unmatched domains. ” This is wrong. Did you add any domains and their correct web root (hint - webroot will not be / )?
