    Definitely not. It caused too many problems because people read the instructions as mandatory even though labeled as optional.

    Ah, that's understandable.

    I just glanced at the code. I could probably port in 15-30 mins. If you really want to do it, I can leave it. Otherwise, it isn't really the time killer some of the others are.

    If you would do it, that would be greatly appreciated! :) It's not that I don't want to do it, but moreso that I don't really have the time to invest in learning how to do it well right now.

    Correct. There is no page with instructions on it. There is a status indicator in the services status tab now though.

    Ah, I had not noticed the status indicator. Thanks for pointing that out! Are there any plans to restore the page with instructions? I don't need it, but I am curious.


    It is a pretty easy port. The mergerfs and kvm plugins have been taking most of my time. If you want to give it a shot, I won't tell you no :) Otherwise, I can probably take a productive break from mergerfs.

    Time permitting, I would not mind trying to take a crack at it over the weekend. Although if I am being honest, I have struggled with the most basic of plugin tasks in the past, so I am sure it would not be easy for me. 😆

    openmediavault-flashmemory - done

    Does the new flashmemory plugin not have a UI component to it at this time? I am running version 6.0.1 of the plugin on my server, but I don't see any menu entry for it.


    openmediavault-wol - not started

    How much work will the WOL plugin require to port? Is it just a UI port? I am asking because I use it on my server, and if you don't have plans to get to it any time soon, I might try taking a stab at porting it if time permits.

    Sorry, I have never used ftp and really don't know much about proftpd.

    That's alright! Thanks anyway! I just assumed that you would know because it feels to me like you know all that their is to know about Linux. 🙂

    Try to add it to the extra options field in the ftp service in the GUI of OMV

    If you are talking about this box, then I have already tried it (see initial post), and sadly, it did not work.


    Hello all,


    I have noticed that ProFTPD shows modification timestamps for files in UTC instead of my local timezone. Does anyone know how to adjust this? I found in the documentation that setting TimesGMT off as a custom configuration entry should change this behavior, but it hasn't.


    I also found a supposed solution here that recommends setting the following:

    Code
    <Global>
    TimesGMT off
    SetEnv TZ :/etc/localtime
    </Global>


    I have tried to use this in the custom configuration with and without the <Global> tags, but nothing seems to work. The FTP client that I am using is FileZilla, if that makes any difference.

    I added it a year ago - https://github.com/OpenMediaVa…cdb5127a58cccc19974af6b7e


    All you have to do click install Docker again. This will update the drive list and docker-compose.

    Oh cool! Sorry about missing that. I did start to poke around the plugin source code to see if I could find it, but I haven't really had enough free time to hunt it down. I regularly reinstall Portainer (since trying to do a container upgrade through the UI does not seem to work), but I don't think I've touched Docker since when I first installed it.


    That's probably the reason we've seen less and less of this problem. Honestly wasn't aware you'd made an effort to resolve that.

    It seems as though good development work always goes on without notice. It's only when there's a problem that everyone starts to pay attention!

    Oh I have no doubt what he said worked... that wasn't the question. Even he mentioned though there's a limitation as it's not going to auto update if drives are removed/added... the delay script doesn't have that limitation.

    Ah! Alright. Got it. I do not often add or remove drives, so I'll leave it as it is for now and wait for ryecoaaron to chime in. It would be nice if this change would get added to the omv-extras plugin. Even though the timeout script is the most stable for now, it would be nice to use the drive approach since I would think that it's technically the way you'd want to go about it.

    Interesting.


    I'd never seen that solution, I always just suggested the delay script you posted a couple years ago (and have always heard back that it worked perfectly). I'm assuming this would work fine, but I think the delay script might be a more permanent solution given it doesn't self update... Especially since we are talking Pi's and other SBC's which may have drives getting moved around, etc.


    Choices... 1 isn't enough, 2 is to many... :)

    I made this change and it worked! I don't quite understand what the implications are to deleting the files that ryecoaaron mentions in his post though. I assume that the change was never integrated into OMV-extras though.

    Hello all,


    I am using server external USB hard drives on my OMV server, and have several Docker containers that mount various directories stored on the drives. The problem is that when I boot the server, the containers often start before the drives are mounted. Is there any way that I can force the Docker service to wait for the mounting to complete before starting?

    I can't replicate this at all. I am able to start and stop it with systemctl and /etc/init.d/

    Here's what I see:


    I'm not really sure what to do at this point. I'm considering doing a good old kill -KILL <pid>, but at the same time, I am not sure that's a good idea.


    Update: I decided to give it a shot and used `kill` as I mentioned above. It worked.

    If you are determining that it is still running by the services green indicator then that is deceiving. /etc/init.d/proftpd status is the most accurate method or grep the output of ps.

    It still shows as running using these two commands as well. It's the unkillable service.
