I just ran the upgrade script 4->5 on my system.
At the end of the log file there is an error about mywebsql.
After a reboot I'm still on omv 4.1.36. I can log into the webgui, nothing seems to be damaged.
Here's the log file. Would be really great if you or someone else could have a look at what's wrong here and why the upgrade isn't working.
I did the recommended backup via clonezilla --> worked very well including testing of the image
Did the upgrade --> worked well
First thing I encountered was the MySQL Database could not be accessed. After resetting the root/omvadmin password this worked as well. Actually, I don´t really know what happened exactly or what made it work in the end.
I also had the "rrdcached plugin could not connect to..." error in syslog. After enabling and disabling the Monitoring this error disappeared.
So far, I'm really happy with the upgrade.
I will go and make a backup with clonezilla. Lets hope the Upgrade will go fine.
Will let you know.
Thanks for your answer.
But the big question remains: how safe will the upgrade procedure be, and how exactly is it done?
I am considering an upgrade of my omv 3.0.96 to omv 4, Debian 8 to Debian 9.
I´ve got the following plugins installed:
- Apple Filing
- Docker (CE-Repo)
- Debian 9 has MariaDB as default. Will the upgrade result in a smooth transition from MySQL to MariaDB?
I believe the Fail2Ban plugin hasn't been ported to omv4 yet, so I'll have to uninstall it. LetsEncrypt, MySQL, Nginx and FlashMemory are really important for me.
Emby is installed via custom repository. Do I have to change the repo from Debian8 to Debian9 before or after upgrading omv?
Will it be safe for me to upgrade?
And another very important question: How do I upgrade? Simply execute "omv-release-upgrade"? Will this command also upgrade the OS from jessie to stretch? Do I first have to change sources from jessie to stretch and Upgrade the OS?
Thank you all for you help. Much appreciated.
Thanks, I will try that!
But actually the reset permission plugin doesn't do its job in this case.
there is something weird going on with my firewall.
I've got several servers set up to the public internet and from time to time (pretty much regularly) I'm not able to reach any of them. I also set up the firewall to be as safe as possible.
Now the mysterious part is: as soon as I make any trivial change to the settings and immediately revert it (so that changes are written to the config file) I can reach my server again.
So, I end up changing the position (or anything else) of my rules, change it back, safe again: I'm back up.
What the hell is this?? I'm really getting tired of doing this.
Yes, exactly what I'm talking about.
I don't really understand the intentions of this umask/ownership setup.
So, acl is the only solution for this?
Is this only possible with ACL?
I think it used to work "out of the Box".
Were you able to reproduce it?
I`d appreciate if someone could try to reproduce this. Maybe I`m doing something wrong...
I just ran into an issue when creating a shared folder including a subfolder, i.e. in the shared folder dialog I put in the path "folder/subfolder" at once. After assigning privileges to my user account and adding this to my samba shares I was not able to connect with an external client. So I checked the folder permissions and "folder" was owned by root:root, whereas "subfolder" was owned by root:users (the correct setting, I guess). I circumvented this by first creating a (single) shared folder "folder" and deleted the share again. Now the ownership for "folder" were root:users. Then I created the shared (sub-)folder "subfolder" by putting "folder/subfolder" in the shared folder dialog. Voila, now I can connect.
This seems to me like a bug. I remember creating this kind of folder/subfolder setup in one step before (for my Time Machine backups) and it was working correctly.
Is anybody able to reproduce this?
Thanks a lot.
kolab would probably have some postfix configuration conflicts with OMV. I wouldn't run them on the same install. Use a VM if docker is too complicated.
Would that be the same with citadel or iredmail?
Any chance you would build a plugin for this? Is it even possible?
What about a native installation? Docker seems to further complicate stuff as I don´t have a clue about docker and how to pass things through etc...
I am very interested in Kolab and would really like to install it on my (very well running) omv3 machine. However, Kolab ships with apache as the standard webserver. So I'm a little afraid of the installation as it might break my present installation due to conflicts between apache and nginx.
Is there anybody here who managed to install Kolab successfully and might give me some guidance? Or is it a bad idea in general to install Kolab?
