In one of the latest updates of Open Media Vault my webgui disappeared (don’t know why), the problem is reported here and the first aid command (omv-firstaid) didn’t help. Solution that worked for me was:
- Start SSH session
- Write in the prompt
service apache2 stop
update-rc.d -f apache2 remove
service nginx restart
And the webgui was running again.
A few years ago many users, like my self, bought Windows home server but as you might know windows home server is dead.
So few years ago I tested a few NAS solutions like FreeNAS, Ubuntu Server + Webmin, etc.. but in the end I choose Open Media Vault.
- I needed a very simple web interface to configure the server and FreeNAS and Open Media Vault has it.
- it has to be light not a resource hog.
- Support for samba, users, ftp, ssh, backups and other things I might need.
- Support for extensions/plugins.
Both FreeNAS and Open Media Vault have it but I sick with Open Media Vault mainly because it’s based on Debian and I’m more familiar with Debian than with FreeBSD.
I will post here a few links that worth check out so you can learn more about Open Media Vault.
