    Got it!

    mv /srv/dev-disk-by-label-data1/plexmediaserver/Library/Application\ Support/Plex\ Media\ Server/Plug-ins/IPTV.bundle /srv/dev-disk-by-id-ata-Samsung_SSD_850_EVO_500GB_S3PTNF0J943273X-part3/plexmediaserver/Library/Application\ Support/Plex\ Media\ Server/Plug-ins

    I installed a Plex Media Server IPTV Plug-In Bundle into...

    /srv/dev-disk-by-label-data1/plexmediaserver/Library/Application\ Support/Plex\ Media\ Server/Plug-ins/IPTV.bundle

    Does not appear on my Plex Front End.
    Is this the proper location for Plug-Ins on Open Media Vault?

    I have installed OMV latest and as usual I installed and then booted with GPARTED to resize the Boot Partition to 32GB and use the remaining 400GB+ for /home

    Problem is on the latest release, openmediavault_4.1.3-amd64, after using GPARTED to perform any type of resizing the system reboots to a BUS ERROR and goes no further.

    I have done this many times in the past and am not quite sure what's happening here.

    That's permissions on your drive. You're seeing an error from your Mac that says something like "User attempting to make changes in Finder..." The drive permissions are off.

    I can't get into specifics... in the middle of a server crash from Bios update... here's a free hint, if it aint broke, don't fix it.

    You can work around this by chmod 777 the drive or folder and it will work.

    I'm not sure if I follow?

    I access remotely, but I have a domain name registered with and use my router/modem to update the IP. I just go to

    I modified the OMV web to be port 8080 and 4433 and use 80 and 443 for my default nginx website. Both sites share the Lets Encrypt SSL certificate.

    I generate the SSL for OMV and when I install the nginx plugin I simply drop down to the SSL I already created. I have tried the reverse method and it didn't work. I had massive errors setting up SSL for my nginx plugin and then sharing with OMV.

    Since I am using a real TLD, I don't know if this will help.

    In finder you select "Go" and drop down to "Connect to Server".

    I can tell you manual instructions, i.e. afp://, but you should be able to click "Browse" button and see the server. If not... there is a problem.

    1. Make sure your connected to the same network as your server... this is not an internet service.

    2. Relaunch your Finder.

    Those are the easiest and first two things to check. On OS High-Sierra I often need to "alt command esc" and Relaunch Finder. It's a bit quirky sometimes.

    If it asks for your Username and Password it is asking for a user you created with OMV WebUI or via SSH and the adduser command. As long as the group "user" has read and write access to the share you should be good.

    Go to "Shared Folders" click the share and select "Privileges". Make sure that user has read and write permissions.

    Let me know how you make out.

    I manually edit /etc/netatalk/afp.conf to include...

    ; Global server settings
    hostname = "Mac Server"
    mimic model = Xserve3,1

    But any time I create, edit or modify using the webui it deletes my changes.

    I also prefer...

    [My Media]
    path = /srv/dev-disk-by-label-sda

    for full access to the disk, not just a specified shared folder.

    Is there a file or script I can edit within /var/www/openmediavault/ to fix this or I should say modify to my specs instead of the omv default?

    I tried not using the plugin and just using netatalk, but for some reason omv stops the service when it sees no shares.

    Yah, I get what your saying on commands... just what I'm use to.

    The /home directory I understand, but in 3.x it would at least load the the file. I just get the error on anything I try to nano and never opens anything, not even a new file.

    I use /home on 3.x because I enabled it manually. I'm using a 120GB SSD and full partition. But, even if it's not enabled at least nano launched, I would get the error once and that's it.

    OK, I added it manually and it works... but just FYI for others thinking of the non-stable upgrade, there are other issues.

    Lets Encrypt is giving me a headache.
    -bash: ifconfig: command not found.
    Attempt to edit a file : Unable to create directory /home/sjdaniels/.nano: No such file or directory

    time for a roll back.

    Why is there no ifconfig or netstat on 4.x ? I managed to find the local IP through my router clients list, but after connecting I have no network interfaces.

    I picked up a new APC today and had to move some stuff around, so I figured I would attempt 4.x and I am a bit confused.

    I did this recently and if you can use the shell and are familiar with basic Linux commands the quickest way I found was to plug in an external USB 3.0 HDD. Mount it and cp everything to it, then setup the new system and reverse the process.

    I did this with 2.5TB of video files that I use to move over the network and would take hours or even days. The method I just described took 1 hour and 20 minutes.
