    • [SOLVED] "openmediavault" valid as a password for the admin of Owncloud

      Hi OpenMediaVault'ers,
      I'm continuing with my setup of my "perfect" OMV box and now, I found that if I try to enter with the "admin" account to Owncloud with "openmediavault" as the password, IT WORKS!
      It also works with the OMV admin password so until I didn't try to authenticate with these credentials I couldn't find that bug.
      So, my question is: is there anything to block the access to the "admin" user who has the "openmediavault" password? If there's no solution, it's a big security breach I think...

      Thanks in advance.

      PS: sorry for being almost everytime asking something in the forums. Now that I'm " " " a bit " " " experienced, I'm trying to join the community answering other people who have the same problems/doubts as me when I started with OMV.

    • Thanks for the reply Tekkb!

      In fact, I did change the admin password when I first log in to Owncloud. If now I try to change the password via the Owncloud web (logining as admin -> personal -> change password) it tells me that the password can't be changed.
      Any other ideas?
      I don't care if I have to reinstall the plugin, maybe I forgot some steps while setting up the cloud... I'll take a backup of the config.php file and if I have to reinstall, I won't have to write it another time.

    • Ok, I had SOLVED the problem. What I did was to disable the "OMV User & Group Backend" plugin from Owncloud and then I could change the "admin" password from the Owncloud GUI. When it was done, I checked if the password was successfully changed (log out, trying to log in with "admin" and "openmediavault" I couldn't (SOLVED!). Then I tried to enter with the new password, I could log in and then I re-enabled the "OMV User & Group Backend" and now it works without any problem.

      Just in case someone has the same problem.
