    See it this way:
    Docker makes sure that nextcloud and OMV are different from each other and that you know where to look for the bug.

    henfri, if you want to talk about the bad side of docker then that's easy to state a working example as per it's relation to openmediavault ....

    SIZE, as you have no option but to install hundreds of megabytes of redundant code on an obscure root/boot only PATH (NOT EVEN INSTALLED ON THE ACCEPTED official "opt", AS IN OPTIONAL linux relative path" just to run the simplest of applications and / or scripting web language on a generic openmediavault that makes a point of actually running fine on a tiny usb3 stick and the like (diy 30gig M2 ssd in a usb3 enclosure etc).

    as an extreme example see multi-platform "rebol" the web scripting app in a few hundred bytes and compare size and actual execution speed with any fully working shell/GUI rebol html script you like.

    plus OC open mediavault still does not have a workable docker absolute/relative path GUI (unless you are an expert in the shell initiation and linux execution rights to actually see one real "shared folders" whatever) share its root 911 or whatever user id it wants to use as the generic default user setting etc ..., you get the point ...

    the other BNM, :) if you are not happy yet working in the shell then you can always install MC to give you a 2 panel file, view, edit option from the putty connection / ssh / x11, enabled x11 forwarding session type
    apt-get update
    apt-get install mc

    once you get the web page back and working as Intended, if you have managed to install OPEN MEDIA VAULT RDC…avault-remotedesktop/view
    on your V3 then you can also give "worker" aka the AMIGA Directory Opus 4 clone to try too.

    apt-get install worker

    and be sure to first install and to run the windows 10 x server is running and in the windows tray so as to autodisplay these open media remote desktop "worker" apps on your local Windows 10 screen without any trouble (Usually :)

    although OPENMEDIAVAULT-REMOTE DESKTOP does have a problem with displaying the right colors of the 'workers' buttons, they still works as a shell and remote headless GUI total-commander replacement.
    fun and games with this forum today it thinks its German and needs google translate to see/read some wording, and OC in the process mess with the original text removing some out of context... at least for me in the uk LOL ...

    it's good that you did leave this as it seems so hit and miss installing on a real
    ASRock J4205-ITX Apollo Lake SOD/U3/4S3 M-ITX Motherboard

    in this case even nano /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/openmediavault-pxe editing and editing the file didnt work as per after rerunning omv-firstaid and selecting 2: configure web control still resulted in the same error (must be caching it somewhere ?

    as i could not get to the :80 or :82 set and failed omv-firstaid pages at the time... i resolved it by
    apt-get remove openmediavault-pxe

    in the ssh session as omv-initsystem did nothing to resolve it after a apt-get dist-upgrade and i did also install when the web page was working earlier openmediavault-nginx and remove the apt-get remove openmediavault-nginx in the shell.

    resolved for now as i can now access the :80 webpage again without a full reinstall , but as seems inevitable there's breakage on real J4205-ITX Apollo Lake hardware ,now its remote desktop 4 ,although in an emergency reinstall last week that worked fine and something else broke in its place ...

    for a so called simple and easy to use out-of-the-box solution that you apparently need to first of all find,download then install a 3rd party openmediavault-omvextrasorg_latest_all4.deb then phaff about to get the recommended "docker" environment for future generic use to keep your central multimedia storage applications current etc.. seems an odd core developer choice , but it works sometimes if you dont breath on it too hard or to often.

    Hallo Leute,

    habe ein großes Problem mit dem Speicherplatz der systemfestplatte und suche verzweifelt nach einer Möglichkeit die log Dateien zu löschen. Am liebsten über ssh!

    Sorry bin ein Noob

    Hello People,

    I have a big problem with the system drive because it is full. Now I want to search for a conclusion to delete the log files via ssh while the WebGUI doesn’t work.

    I hope someone can help me!

    (Sorry for the bad English)

    oh, arr , for a minute i thought YES it's alive, sadly not yet and im at a bit of a lost now....

    the adventure was to use a generic clean WSL debian 9 install on a clean new windows 10 pro ssd install and for a moment it seems to almost work...

    interestingly its seems a generic clean WSL debian 9 install shows a few OMV bugs and basic unhandled errors that kill the scripts rather than recover gracefully as in for instance

    ERROR: dialog-like terminated due to an error: the dialog-like program exited with status 3 (which was passed to it as the DIALOG_ERROR environment variable). Sometimes, the reason is simply that dialog was given a height or width parameter that is too big for the terminal in use. Its output, with leading and trailing whitespace stripped, was:

    Error: Expected at least 5 tokens for --menu, have 4.
    Use --help to list options.

    See system logs and 'systemctl status monit.service' for details.

    and will some community dev please fix the typo in a current and many prior releases to fix that annoying File "/usr/lib/python3.5/", line 117

    i needed to first give "root" a legacy password for nostalgia "toor" ,install and test a few apps every base video storage OS needs today , ffmpeg, mediainfo, vlc, mc, worker for the must have xfce4 desktop env and windows installed VcXsrv ,rebol, and a few likes for automation later, native qbittorrent-nox, Radarr nightly,Sonarr nightly and jackett installs,and/or duckieTV OBVIOUSLY :)

    Ive tried for the last 2 hours to sync a folder from my PC with syncthing to OMV. The problem is the folderpath to my hdd I have to specify in Syncthing on OMV.
    How does the path have to look like?

    I have a hardrive at dev/sdc that has is called in OMV "Filesystem" dev/sdc1. Its name is HDD2TB and there is a Folder "Storage" in it. Syncthing has permission to the folder.
    I want Syncthing to Sync to the folder "Storage/Syncthing" and get this error:

    2017-11-17 22:21:48: Loading ignores: open /dev/sdc1/Storage/Syncthing/.stignore: not a directory
    2017-11-17 22:21:48: Creating folder marker: folder path missing
    2017-11-17 22:21:49: Error on folder "TestData" (xfmiz-pqyk2): folder path missing

    Please help... Im getting desperate. ;(

    Hi, :)

    I tried ARRAY <ignore> devices=/dev/sda and it didn't work. Tried to put ARRAY <ignore> devices=/dev/sda1, 2 ,3.. sdb1 sdc1 sdd1....etc on each line and it still tries to search for a raid on boot. Tried the omv-mkconf mdadm command and it returns a warning saying mdadm /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf defines no arrays.

    EDIT: uhm, I reboot and it seems that omv-mkconf mdadm did the trick! I forgot to say that I cloned the drive with the os to another drive using the clonezilla. I'm just getting this error now during boot [FAILED] Failed to start Check And Enable File System Quotas. See 'systemctl status quota.service' for details. I typed systemctl status quota.service and it returned

    ● quota.service - Initial Check File System Quotas

    But the system is still working.

    Hi all,

    I really enjoy OMV and very happy with it! But I'm having some trouble after updating to OMV 4.x. I'm getting this message when booting "mdadm no ARRAYS FOUND in config file or automatically disable". The message is spamming the console trying to find a RAID array and slowing down the boot process, my drives aren't on RAID. Tried messing with grub and setting raid=noautodetect as kernel paramenter and didn't work. If someone could help me with this problem.

    Thanks in advance,
    Best regards for the devs and community. ^^


    after setting up a Letsencrypt container with following guide, I can't seem to find where the appdata is located:

    It's possible to locate the appdata outside of my docker container with following argument, when setting up the container:
    -v <path to data>:/config
    When I don't use this command, where are my config files for the container located?

    My default docker folder is at /var/lib/docker/containers/<container-id>, but I can't find the config files there.


    I want to create a new folder on my HDD /dev/sdb1, which I mounted correctly.
    I can create a Shared folder on this HDD and copy files via SMB, but I cannot find the mounted HDD via SSH and SCP.

    The folders /mnt and /media are empty.

    Can someone tell me where the HDDs are mounted?
