      Hello guys,
      im knew to OMV and this Forum. I bought a used NAS and want to install OMV now. But i dont know if its the right thing for me. Primary i want to save some multimedia there like movies and pictures. My question is: Is it possible to share e.g. a picture-folder with friends? Or is it just possible to log in over the internet to the NAS and having access to the folder then?

      Thank you for your advice and best regards
      Alex

      You should post what type of NAS you bought. Someone might know if OMV can be installed on that or not.

      Yes, this is possible for example by using Nextcloud. Have a look at this video and the next one in that thread.

      There is no native OMV web based file manager. You can use mc but you can also use winscp, samba, nfs, and various other web based filemanagers installed with the nginx plugin. The biggest problem with a web based file manager is it basically needs root permissions to do everything you want and that would be dangerous. Why do you need a web-based file manager?
