    • Couldn't log in to the web interface

      Hi,

      I was using the OpenmediaVault login and suddenly it had stopped working telling me my username and password were wrong.

      I had set everything up, and I've been transferring files to the drive but it wouldn't let me in.

      I SSH'd in and noticed a full /var/log with nothing visibly in it.

      I fired up a lsof |grep /var/log and there were a list of files marked as deleted that something had deleted but not disconnected the inodes, so a quick /etc/init.d/rsyslog restart cured the issue.

      So if anyone cannot log into the web gui in the future, check the /var/log and if its 100%, restart rsyslog and see if that fixes the problem.

      Once the rsyslog had restarted, login was fine. :)
    • Wow, did not expect this behaviour.

      I must not fear.
      Fear is the mind-killer.
      Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
      I will face my fear.
      I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
      And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
      Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
      Only I will remain.
