  Thecus N5550 disables when attaching external USB HDD after OS7 upgrade
Posted by: architect7 - 06-15-2017, 04:19 PM - Forum: N5550 - Replies (1)

I just upgraded to OS7 recently on my N5550 and everything works great until I attach my WD Easy Store 6TB USB 3.0 hard drive via the front USB 3.0 port.  This disables the NAS and it disappears from my network, cannot be pinged, etc.  If I reboot with the HDD still connected, it will sit in "Assemble RAID" state forever.  Only after unplugging the external HDD and rebooting does it come back online.  Is this a known issue?

  [Muximux][170612] Lightweight portal to your webapps
Posted by: outkastm - 06-15-2017, 03:49 AM - Forum: Third party modules - No Replies

[Image: muximux-icon.png]

Module is available for:

x64_OS5/OS7 - last version - 170612
x86_OS5/OS6 - last version - 170612



apache24 >



This is a lightweight portal to view & manage your webapps without having to run anything more than a PHP enabled webserver. With Muximux you don't need to keep multiple tabs open, or bookmark the URL to all of your apps.

[Image: 68747470733a2f2f692e696d6775722e636f6d2f...582e706e67]

Major features

Add, remove and rearrange your owns apps without touching any code - it's all in the settings menu!
A shiny new dropdown menu (top right) where you can put items you don't use that often!
Change or replace icons by just clicking the icon you think looks good.
Enable or disable a landingpage for each app (landingpages prevent you from being bombarded with login-prompts, and reduces load on your browser).
All menu items move to the dropdown when you access Muximux from your mobile phone or tablet!
Refresh button - when you click it, only the app you are looking at will be reloaded - not EVERY app inside your browser. You can also double click the item in the menu.

Behind the scenes features

Deferred loading of apps - each app only opens when you first click it. Loading time of Muximux is very fast!
Security token generated on each page load. To execute specific functions of Muximux you can not do it without this token - a token that changes when the user leaves the page, effectively making commands to Muximux not function if you are not a valid user of the Muximux app currently browsing it.
API calls to Github to look up commit history/changelog are cached and only called once when Muximux is loaded.
No HTTP requests to external servers. Muximux fonts, icons and other resources: Google, Bootstrap, jQuery and Font-Awesome do not need to know you are hosting a server!
Custom versions of minified javascript libraries that removes some of the unnecessary functions we're not using, which result in less javascript overhead and faster loading times.

  Ist Thecus die richtige Wahl?
Posted by: DrMartinus - 06-12-2017, 11:24 PM - Forum: General [German Support] - Replies (8)

Ich habe mir vor etwa einem Monat das N4310 zugelegt. Es hat mich rund zwei Wochen gekostet, bis ich endlich herausgefunden habe, wie es mit ssh und normalen (nicht-root) Nutzern möglich ist, auf das NAS zuzugreifen. Bei einem Synology-NAS, das ich beruflich nutze, war das eine Sache von einer halben Stunde.
Dann erst kam die Suche nach brauchbarer Software, denn mit dem, was auf dem NAS angeboten wird, konnte ich das, was mir vorschwebt, nicht umsetzen. Geschockt war ich, festzustellen, dass als Apache-Server die Version 1.x installiert ist. Aktuell ist 2.4.x, als 3rd-party-Modul lässt sich immerhin 2.2 installieren. Sollte da nicht der Hersteller für regelmäßige updates sorgen - wenigstens bei diesem so wichtigen Modul?
Es zeigt sich, dass die meisten der Softwaremodule drei bis vier Jahre alt sind, viele noch älter. Sie wurden meist erstellt von einer einzigen Person, die jetzt zu QNAP gewechselt ist. Eine andere Person erstellt zwar noch Module, lässt sich dafür aber bezahlen (kann man auch akzeptieren, aber... )
Die Anleitung zum Erstellen von Modulen ist sechs (SECHS) Jahre alt - das ist in der IT Welt schon eine Ewigkeit! Ist diese Anleitung überhaupt noch nutzbar? Ich bezweifle es. Und nachdem ich diese anleitung studiert habe, sind noch sehr viele Fragen offen, die scheinbar nirgends beantwortet werden.
Der Support gibt (zumindest im Englischen) eher mehr Rätsel auf, als dass er Lösungen bietet. Problematisch finde ich, wenn sie sich einfach in das NAS einloggen und dort "Fehler beseitigen", was bei mir noch nicht, aber bei anderen geschehen ist. Man erfährt nicht, was gemacht wurde, und natürlich sind die persönlichen Daten dann auch offen zugänglich für Menschen, die einem völlig unbekannt sind.
Ich erwäge schon ernsthaft, ein NAS einer anderen Firma zu kaufen. Leider kann ich das Thecus NAS nicht mehr einfach zurückgeben, das Rückgaberecht ohne Grund ist schon abgelaufen. Deswegen zögere ich noch und versuche, mit diesem NAS mein Ziel zu erreichen, das ich mir schon vor langem gesetzt habe.
(Mir scheint owncloud oder nextcloud das Richtige zu sein, aber owncloud gibt es nur in Version 6 - aktuell ist Version 10! - für mein NAS und nextcloud nur gegen Geld. owncloud funktioniert aber auch nicht vollständig, ist von daher dann wohl doch nicht die richtige Wahl).
Es ist ein Trauerspiel.

my frustration with Thecus NAS is growing, and from what I read here, I'm not the only one. I still try to figure out what would be the best way to make use of the NAS (I have quite a clear vision of how to use it, but I didn't find the proper software to implement that - or better: the softwares offered are not functioning properly).
At least I could install owncloud only to discover that the available version for my N4310 is 4 major releases behind, which I guess is something around 4 years old. The provided "update" function within owncloud offers no update, most likely because it is too old.
But that's not all. The module gives me an error with regard to the most important function I wanted to try out:

Your web-server is not ready for file synchronisation because probably the WebDAV-API is broken.
There is a huge list of error messages in the error log, which I am ignoring for now, because first I want to know how I can fix this. I saw also the error message that the certificate was not accepted, but I don't know how I can fix that.
Best would be to create the module myself, however, I am not yet sure enough if I can do that.

  I must be ages old...
Posted by: DrMartinus - 06-11-2017, 11:19 PM - Forum: Others - Replies (1)

Today i got a funny report by my NAS:

The Power_On_Hours of Disk 1 has reached 164007621165626 hours.
The Power_On_Hours of Disk 2 has reached 139942919406138 hours.
I did a quick calculation. According to this, Disk 1 must have run roughly 18.7 billion years, while disk 2 must have run about 16 billion years. Impressive. I started the NAS with new drives about 20 days ago. The last restart was about 5 or 6 days ago.

  N2800 - setup doesn't appear to be working
Posted by: bpfh666 - 06-11-2017, 01:29 AM - Forum: N2800 - Replies (7)

Hi all,

Just got myself one of these and I'm trying to set it up but have run into problems.

Running the Setup Wizard picks up the box (along with my 2310) and shows an IP of and nothing else but a MAC address.

When I get to the Network Configuration page, I enter a hostname and static network infomation (IP, netmask, gateway & DNS - my router).

End the process, popup shows Network & Password settings as OK - great!

Start the browser, though, tries this - which - obviously! - doesn't work. Neither does

Then going back into the setup utility, the hostname & DNS are gone.

Firmware is

Any suggestions or is the box going back?
