    I want to add webmail to my OMV instance. I can create a symlink inside of /var/www/openmediavault and that sort of works. For instance, if my OMV is normally reached as https://omv/ the new sublink can be reached at https://omv/sublink.

    Ideally, what I want is a new top level URI. https://sublink/.

    The Nginx plugin seems to suggest I can do something like this. I haven't really figured it out.

    What is the preferred way to use host a website on OMV? Should I create an IP alias (how?) and listen on that? or should I listen on another port? or should I use a virtual host and listen on the same OMV port and redirect via the name ala Apache style.

    I have created an unofficial plugin repository for OMV 0.5 Sardaukar, 0.6/1.0 Kralizec, 2.0 Stoneburner, 3.0 Erasmus, and 4.0 Arrakis.

    For OMV 3.x and 4.x, list of plugins, statuses, etc are found here.
    To install the plugin, follow these steps.

    i've installed erasmus plugin extras and am trying to installed the mysql plugin. the page no longer displays a share on which to store the data. where does the mysql data go now?

    The error message indicates that the most important daemon called omv-engined is not running. Please try to run it manually to find out why it is not running:

    # omv-engined -d -f

    Please post any error message shown.

    PHP Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required 'openmediavault/' (include_path='.:/usr/share/php:/usr/share/pear') in /usr/share/openmediavault/engined/inc/ on line 20

    those file names seemed to be quite similar to the plugins i had previously had. i purged all of the openmediavault-<plugin> names that were causing errors. engined now runs.

    @macom, you say do a "fresh install." I have a rich background of usage already on this system. what are the ramifications of starting over. that's really inconvient. i have existing LDAP, plugin settings, and so forth, not to mention multiple TB of data. what happens to all of that?

    i ran "groupadd openmediavault-config" and that seemed to get to the next level. are there any bad ramifications from that?

    I am running roundcube 1.1.1 plugin within OMV 1.19. i am displaying an HTML email page which looks like the attached image.

    The broken images displayed refer to static images from a <img> tag with the src being another website on a remote host. For instance this one:…0/MapMyRun_email_logo.png

    I have my settings set to display HTML for this folder.

    How do I configure myself to display images?

    I've attached omv-upgrade.txt which is much of the output of the system. when it failed to do the upgrade, i manually ran apt-get upgrade which fixed some things. I then went and removed netatalk and openmediavault-netatalk and then re-installed afterwards (i wasn't using that anyway). the result is that i had a system that seemed to be okay. i rebooted, but although i could login via root using ssh, i cannot logon to the web interface. a normal login page appears and i type in the credentials that used to work, but nothing happens (no warnings, no failed login message, no spinning symbols, nothing). i'm using latest google chrome. i looked through /var/log/* and the latest messages (ls -ltr) have nothing useful in them.

    after logging in as root i notice that my disks aren't mounted. i manually mount them and all the data is there.

    as far as i know there are two major problems right now:

    • can't login to web interface
    • disks are not mounting

    both are biggies for me.


    Honestly, the most useful plugin i can see would be an encrypted disk service. Data can be protected in the normal way on the LAN, but if the disk or machine is stolen, the files would be unrecoverable. This would necessarily ensue a two part "boot" though. Normal booting and exporting, but the files wouldn't be visible until someone logged in and typed in the correct password. I'm not a big fan of USB keys and such to do that (considered the "meat problem.")
