    • Accessing "root folder" with FTP

      Hello,

      is it possible to access "root" on OMV with FTP ?

      I want to change i.E. channels.conf in VDR, but i cannot get access to it.

      I first tried it the extplorer, but as i cannot give the correct priviliges to extplorer im not able the change anything on the system device.

      is there anyway to get access to it as a DAU ?

    • No, you can't access root with omv and ftp.

      Won't the channels.conf be overwritten if you change anything in the plugin?

      What is DAU? Why not just change it using ssh and login as root?

    • Is there any other possiblity to change files / folders on the root device without using CLI ?

      Channels.conf can be changed with plugins. This won't be a problem. It's just easier to edit channels.conf and arrange the channels in a proper position then doing it through the webIF

      DAU is german for = Dümmster anzunehmender User; i guess it's similiar to "luser" ?!!

      It is possible to change it with SSH and root.

      But in my next step i also need to copy other plugins into the VDR Folder and as im not familiar with linux i want avoid copying folders by CLI
