thanks for your feedback!!
OMV webGUI still works.
Yes, your're right. I have not configured any pool.
I was not aware, that it is necessary. Is there a documentation for this plugin?
I have not found one at omv-extras.
I added now a pool config - now it works, almost.
The website/php program I am trying to host is complaining:
It wants to change "config/config.php"! Where is this file?
How do I do this? Do I need to choose an admin user for the pool? Should I define a special user? How?
Even though I trust this software, this looks like a severe security flaw to me.
You can choose any user. But be aware actiona the software might do will be limited to that unprivileged user. The config.php error is part of the software you should read about in their documentation, is probably permission issue.
thanks again for your fast response.
It certainly is a permission error. It is running an installation procedure during the first start and complaining that it cannot change the file.
I would grant the rights, if I knew where the file is exactly located.
Is is a globally shared config, also for the OMV GUI, or a specific one?
Is it normal an save to define a user with admin rights for the php programs?
Omv ui for example runs through a php sock as root for obvious reasons. Depends if what you want the application to do. You’re asking me where a configuration file of a software you downloaded is in your server? How can I know that?
If you selected a shared folder as root folder for nginx then that folder should be either at /srv/ where all disks are mounted or at /sharedfolders/sharedfoldername
Both locations can be accessed through ssh as there is no built in file explorer. You can also use the acl button for shared folder to change ownership of a shared folder recursively.
