    What permission do you set up on the shares?

    Is your problem still with permissions? Or you cannot login?

    Sounds like you are not giving user and group access through the web interface maybe? I had ran into that issue in the past. I attached a picture, I apologize it is not in German!

    Also are you having issues with files on the drive from past installations? Could be your permissions are no good. From command line on OMV, chown root:users /path/to/share should give permissions to any OMV users you create, assuming you have simple ACL/default permissions set up. All users created through webui should exist in 'users' group....

    Your mounted drives will be located in /srv directory, if you are not familiar with linux command line the basic directory commands are:

    ls /path/to/directory - give simple file listing of directory
    ls -la /path/to/directory - give relevant information about directory with permissions and ownership infos
    cd /path/to/directory - make target directory the current working directory (then you can reference files directly "file1.jpg" instead of "/path/to/directory/file1.jpg"
    chmod 755 /path/to/directory - this is most appropriate in my mind for directory permissions,
    chmod 644 /path/to/directory/file1.jpg - this is most appropriate in my mind for file permissions
    chmod 644 -R /path/to/directory - this applies 644 permissions recursively, eg, to the directory itself and all files/directories contained within that directory
    chown root:users /path/to/directory - this gives user ownership to root users and group ownership to users in group named 'users' to the given directory

    Hi, you may need to open ftp port, from time to time your package mirrors might be configured to use ftp server instead of http/s.

    But I think that's not the issue. I'm curious if it is just plugins that you have trouble with or apt-get update as well?

    Can you ls -la /etc/php5/fpm/pool.d and post the directory listing? I suspect you have no conf for that fpm pool.

    It's not difficult to create one but I'd be concerned as to why it's not there in the first place, is there other things with the install which is broken.

    I'm not so sure the permissions script will ameliorate the issue with no unix socket/fpm pool configuration for nextcloud, HOWEVER, I don't use that software and am just troubleshooting based on some experience with web development.

    To be sure, your install won't work until that .sock file appears, along with the correlating conf in fpm/pools.d . I'm just not sure if that was supposed to happen automagically or if you missed a step in the install (I haven't had more than a cursory glance at this guide)

    Unlimited, always a scam. Show me an unlimited HD and I'll buy into one of those plans.

    To elaborate, if you take your data seriously don't buy an "unlimited" plan.

    As I say, there is no unlimited hard drive. This marketing tactic is a blatant scam- personally I don't give my money to people who greet me with misrepresentations. :)

    And, we all know too well, not all forms of storage are equal.

    Avoid Lexar on sale, had one go corrupt on me within an hour. They're not going to be selling sticks under Lexar brand anyway.

    Had found ViTran SLC USB3 on ebay, looks interesting. Untested though. Decent price.

    Have found the sandisk cruzer fit to be quite reliable indeed. Been using one to store data on my rpi torrentbox for a few months without issue.

    You can find good prices on usb 2.0 drives on Amazon, I saw Amazon US has industrial USB for sale.

    I always buy directly from Amazon warehouse stock or from local retailers.

    Have also found Kingston DataTraveler 100 G3 to be reasonably priced and very reliable, been using several for a number of years, one did duty as omv boot drive for a while. It is usb3 but not very speedy.

    I am interested by m2 to usb converters. Seems good USB are hard to come by these days.

    If this is actually sensitive data (ie. business use) I think is is very irresponsible to store it alongside a personal htpc/nas.

    If there should ever be an attack on your NAS, and the attacker is able to extrude data from your machine, you could be subject to civil/judicial action.

    If you are not self employed you may also be placing your employer in a legally precarious situation in a number of different arenas.

    The fact that you think your best solution may be "ssl encrpytion" and "nextcloud with encryption" leads me to believe this is a bad idea. Please do not take offense.

    Once you choose a solution, please do read up a bit on securing servers! It is really not a matter of installing x, "set and forget". Maybe a regular home user can do this, but if you really want to store sensitive data on your home NAS I would implore you to do a bit more research.


    I was thinking again about your comments today @flmaxey and was thinking it might be a better/more interesting use of the emmc to put an image of OMV 3.X (to reinstall incase of borking) and possibly gparted Live or something. Similar to the recovery partition on many laptops/desktops. What do you think? I could do this with two usbs connected to the Nuc, one with the gparted/OMV images and one with maybe another gparted or something to just wipe the eMMC and then write the images to it.

    Then I could test by installing to the transcend usb I was using as a boot drive earlier in the week. I could probably even just transfer the images to the SATA drive in the NUC and write them to the emmc by mounting /dev/sd(SATA DISK ID) .... so only one usb would be needed.

    Funny, I think I spent more on my RPi microsds than I did on my usb drives.. I would like to get a good SLC USB and test that, using the opportunity to test a backup of my omv setup once it's complete .

    (working on a bit better Pi-hole integration than @raulfg3 provided in his guide and maybe Squid3 also if the box can handle it).

    For that reason losing a boot drive is a bit more of an issue for me :P

    I had considered that but I feel that reliable usb drives are not so easy to come by these days.

    I have noticed the load is much lower using the eMMC/flash memory as opposed to a good USB/flash memory. Still spikes somewhat, I suspect now this is just because the processor is so underpowered.

    But even rsyncing a local backup, streaming a video and uploading media via nfs simultaneously doesn't cause any instability. That group of tasks generated a 2.8 load at one point this morning.

    Raspbian stretch was released four days ago. Although it is not possible to upgrade running omv 3.x , it is probably a good idea if you're running a headless server for other reasons.

    There is a patch for the "broadpwn" vulnerability in the wifi firmware.

    A couple of months ago, a vulnerability was discovered in the firmware of the BCM43xx wireless chipset which is used on Pi 3 and Pi Zero W; this potentially allows an attacker to take over the chip and execute code on it. The Stretch release includes a patch that addresses this vulnerability.

    I wonder if they will backport that to Raspbian Jessie. <X

    ahhh I hadn't considered this. I just use a little rpi/3 running LibreELEC for an htpc (native nfs support) otherwise all my devices are set up to use SMB (oddly Mint seems to support smb out of the box but not nfs). Thanks for the info!
