Web GUI not working

  • This is my first pi and new to omv so bear with me.


    I recently did a new install of omv 6 on my raspberry pi 4 running raspberry os lite. It seemed to install ok but when I try to access the web GUI it says the sever isn't responding. I set the pi with a static ip through my router so I now I have the right IP address. After I wasn't able to sign in I tried rebooting the pi and it said something failed wait for network to be configured (see attachment). Im assuming this may have something to do with my issue.


    Im running the os of an sd card. Upon investigating it seems that this isn't the best way to go for omv, but according to the documentation there is an install variant for an sd card. Does anyone know how to install this variant, does it differ from other variants? Can the sd card be part of the problem?


    This is the command I used to install omv can someone tell me if its correct or not.

    wget -O - https://raw.githubusercontent.…tallScript/master/install | sudo bash


    I just realized I didn't use the "sudo" command could that have screwed the install?



    Any help will be greatly appreciated

    Technically the command would not have worked without using sudo as you login in to the Pi with the user Pi

    I set the pi with a static ip through my router

    I know some routers have the capability of doing this, but personally I would leave it as dhcp, especially during an install, you can then set a static ip within omv's gui.

    but according to the documentation there is an install variant for an sd card.

    How did you do this? I think you are telling us the router will assign the same IP to OMV, but OMV is still set to DHCP (that is what geaves recommends, and I do too).

    That is ok, but do not forget to install the openmediavualt-folder2ram plugin later

    You did,it is there: wget -O - https://raw.githubusercontent.…tallScript/master/install | sudo bash


    When you are logged in, use omv-firstaid to check the network settings.

    I assume you are using this command

    sudo wget -O - https://github.com/OpenMediaVault-Plugin-Developers/installScript/raw/master/install | sudo bash

    and not this

    sudo wget -O - https://raw.githubusercontent.…tallScript/master/install | sudo bash

    This has happened before...

  • I disable the static ip from my router, and have a new ip but still unable to pull up the GUI. I also ran fist "omv-firstsaid on the network and it said it was successful. Not sure where to go from here. any other ideas? thank you in advance.


    This is the command used. Not sure why it changed in the last post.

    wget -O - https://raw.githubusercontent.…tallScript/master/install | sudo bash

    Did I use the wrong command? is there a way to reinstall OMV without starting completely over with fresh install of pi OS? Thanks

    If you ran omv-firstaid and reconfigured the IP.. OMV is installed, so you're having some other issue (and that command is fine.. you probably executed it as root which negates the need for sudo.. otherwise it would have failed)... are you sure you know the IP address?


    What is the output of

    Code
    ip a

  • Even if the OS is using DHCP... once it connects to the router, you can "reserve" that address in the router.. I done it for years, but it can be problematic sometimes.. and the smarter way is to set the static address in the webUI.

    eth0: 192.168.135.161/24

    I would post the whole thing but since I can't ssh into the pi right now...

    ok, so try going to ip 192.168.135.161 and see if that gets you the webUI

    Run the command again, ;)

    Thats what I do for all my servers (except switches or other network devices), no need to use static IPs and i call my servers by their names anyway

    For some reason that made me think of the "Say My Name..." scene from Breaking Bad...lol.


    If your managing multiple servers, it's probably way easier to remember names. I manage 2.. One here and a remote backup at my parents house... but I access it by domain name... so really only one IP to manage.

  • Run the command again, ;)


    sudo wget -O - https://github.com/OpenMediaVault-Plugin-Developers/installScript/raw/master/install | sudo bash

    Tried installing again with no luck. Resorted to reinstalling OS and OMV. Something went right with the install because now the webui is working. I’m wondering if when I copied and pasted the original command there was an extra space or something in the command. As painful as it was I typed it in manually and it worked.

  • Well it was working. Last night the webui was working and when I woke up this morning it wasn’t. Checked the IP address as I though it may have changed but no luck. It says the server isn’t responding. Any thoughts? Thank you in advance.

  • I’m getting host key verification failed. I know there’s a way to reset the host key but forgot the command so I have to find it again. I’m on a Mac.

  • On windows, you can find the keys on:

    C:\Users\<yourUSERname>\.ssh\


    Deleting all, will reset the PuTTY access.


    Don't know where they're stored on MAC.
