    • Greetings new friends. Newb alert. I've got OMV working on a Pi3 and all seems well. So I'm trying to get seafile going too now. I'm stuck on setting the seafile data directory here:
      - When asked for the Seafile Data directory use the full directory path to the Seafile-data folder you created in Part 1 Step 2 and append /data to the end of the path e.g.
      /media/fa8088ed-5de5-4c2c-b4dc-d84abe3dd7ec/Seafile-Data/data (/media/your-number-is different/Seafile-Data/data)
      How do I find the proper path for my own setup? I'm not able to figure that out.

    • After getting OMV and Seafile running I can't write files to my SMB directories from my Mac. Also I'm not super impressed with the UI of Seafile. All uploads have failed with no explanation as to why. Perhaps same permissions reason. And one can't cancel an upload once it starts, so I often get a spinning wheel, forever. Maybe I'll look at NextCloud.
    • I have a fresh install of 4.1.10, only changes have been the instructions on the first page plus install java-jre as requested by the seafile installer. I followed everything to a t aside from the mysql data dir, seems you cant specify that from the plugin anymore. The problem im having is the step where you have to enter the root password for mysql, I can login to the mysql console from the root user account but from the seafile user account it will not allow it. How can I fix this?
