    Hi all !
    could you please help with renewal of the Let's Encrypt certificate ?
    It's expired since yesterday, and It has not been renewed automatically
    This is what I found into the log file from the config folder:

    cronjob running on Sat Sep 21 02:08:00 CEST 2019
    Running certbot renew
    Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log

    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    Processing /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/*********
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    Cert not yet due for renewal

    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    The following certs are not due for renewal yet:
    /etc/letsencrypt/live/******** expires on 2019-12-13 (skipped)
    No renewals were attempted.
    No hooks were run.

    How to perform a manual renewal ?


    Hi @Wek

    I managed to make bitwarden works with let's Encrypt.
    Furthermore, my Bitwarden container is not installed on the same OMV, but it works like a charm (Remote/local access, FireFox plugin, iOS App)
    The most important part is to properly create and configure the "bitwarden.subdomain.conf" file, located in your AppData folder, under


    here is a template in attachment

    You have to change the following lines:

    server_name bitwarden.*; --> replace bitwarden with your subdomain
    set $upstream_bitwarden bitwarden; --> replace bitwarden with your bitwarden container name
    proxy_pass http://192.168.1.XXX:8080; --> replace the IP:port with the IP:port of the bitwarden container

    don't forget to restart the letsencrypt container

    I guess it is resolved now.
    I don't know if it's the good way (I'm a noob), but it worked

    1) Thanks to @MrC, I created a new container path, mapped with the desirated sharedfolder I want to connect
    2) I added a "local" external storage, with the container path entered in the configuration field
    3) In order to write into the mounted storage, I ran a chown -R 911:911 /Path/to/folder

    If somebody have a better way to achieve, please share ;)

    I'm unable to add local storage with the external storage app (red icone with exclamation mark)
    but I have no issue with SMB/CIFS shares connected to a Synology for instance

    In my case, the folder I want to connect is "F3"
    The local path of the folder on the OMV is "/sharedfolder/F1/F2/F3"
    Folder "F1" is the shared folder

    F3 is reacheable from my computer with SMB/CIFS

    I read in a previous post that in the "configuration" field of the external storage App, we have to enter the container path
    ->I don't understand this part

    I tried enter "/data" (as "/data" is my container path), and it worked.
    So I guess I have permisson issue or something else ?

    I also tried to change permission on the "F1" folder but it's still not OK…ternal_storage/local.html

    Can someone help ?
    Thank you

    Hi All,
    finally, I installed the CloudCmd container thanks to the TechnoDadLife video, in order massively copy the data

    For testing purposes, with CloudCmd, I created a new directory under the "/sharedfolders/Nextcloud/user/files" directory, and copied a few files into it

    then I downloaded the OCC WEB App from the Nextcloud marketplace, and ran the "files:scan --all" command

    Good: New files copied previously are now indexed
    Bad: I don't have the permission the create any file into the new directory from the Nextcloud UI (even after performing a chown -R on the folder)

    Can someone help please ?
    (sorry for the french language in the screenshot)

    Hello All,
    I just achieved the installation of Nextcloud on my OMV, thanks to the 2 great videos (Installation and external access) of Techno Dad Life.
    a thousand times thank you @TechnoDadLife :thumbsup:

    Next step, I need to import a lot of Data (more than 100GB) into Nextcloud.
    These data are stored into an USB external Disk drive which is plugged in the OMV server
    The disk is actually mounted, and I created shared folders that are perfectly accessible via SMB protcole from a Windows laptop

    According to you all, what is the best way to import data into Nextcloud without going through the laptop ?
    and how ?

    i guess the use of rsync is recommended, but I don't know how to implement it with Nextcloud (indexing files etc...)

    Thanks a lot for your help
