    • Headphones - service starting but no GUI

      Got a problem after recently installin a fresh build of OMV this weekend. I have a number of add-ons through omv-extras.org and they all work great. Thanks to everyone who contributed.

      The one problem I have is headphones is failing to be get a default webpage up. From theGUI, it attempts to connect to but I just get the default webpage saying page not available with nothing else. Tried with https as well but no go.
      I've verified that noting is listening on this port, as when i disable the service for headphones, nothing else is listening.

      I have no idea where to go from here, as at one point it was working.
      I've searched the net high and low, and nothing can help me...
      Tried uninstalling several time, with reboots but still a no go...
      Can anyone help with where to look from here?
    • Thanks for the help, unfortunately the headphones log doesnt appear to give any clues... I cleared the log and restarted services.. it appears ok but still no web interface

      Could it be something with the web interface? Where could I go next to resolve this?

    • Stop HP, service headphones stop then edit the config file nano /home/headphones/.headphones/config.ini and change the port field to use another port http_port = 8181 to http_port = 9999 or whatever.

      Finally start HP service headphones start

      Just checked my config, make sure you have http_host = in the [General] section of the config, check this before changing port (remember to stop HP before making changes to this file)

    • Thank you thank you thank you !!!!

      Changed port to 9999 and from localhost to and its all working!!
      I did change the ports a few nights ago when it wasnt working, but it didnt resolve the issue so I reverted the change back, I think the fix in this scenario was the "localhost" to

      In the interest of learning... do you know why it suddenly didn't work, and how did you know that this was the issue?
    • The host is what it is listening for, if not set to then it will only listen for connections coming from localhost, your not connecting from the local machine so it fails to show the webui.
      This part of the config should have been auto created when installing, I will have to check to see why in your case it was not :(

    • Headphone still not working

      Hi everybody,

      I'm running OMV 2.x.
      I have the same problem explained regarding the GUI not working.
      I tried to modify the config.ini file and I put http_host = as suggested.

      But the restart of the service reverts the config.ini and put http_host =localhost

      Any clue to solve my problem ?
    • Hey. I'm getting this an error message regarding my time zone. Looking through the file it relates to, I can see US/Eastern as an example.
      What should I do?

      this alone got me going with the latest OMV on a rpi. no need to change the port. would be useful if it was somehow changed in the default, so it 'just worked', but googling the forums also, 'just works'! thanks for the awesome software folks.
    • I'm running omv 2 and just had this issue with headphones gui not working...changed http_host from localhost to and its now working.

      definitely a worth while thread ;D
