Hi Guys,

Pete's aware of the issue..looks like we missed this app with the repo shuffle that was necessary for preparation for 6.6 and 7....It will be resolved shortly.

What errors are you seeing? Anything in dmesg after you try and mount it?

Ben Chambers replied to the topic Re:Owncloud installation in the forums.
Hi Patrick,

I doubt installing OwnCloud from their sources will 'break' anything...., but then, you've just touched on one of the advantages to buying it in the Marketplace...a lot of work/time has been spent making sure the installation on ClearOS goes smoothly and is automated to every extend possible. Hence, the convenience of essentially 'one clicking' to install via Marketplace. The other value add is the tight integration with ClearOS directory API.

Haven't been any updates lately that might affect this...and mine is still working fine...

I'm assuming you know about the RAID app and it just doesn't do everything you want it to do...it gets you part way though.

Looked at the Webmin...ya, that's quite a bit of work. I'd estimate 2-3 days to extend the RAID tool set and add LVM support (which is also falling under similar scope to the Storage Manager app.

There's no formal bounty program in effect...we have been contracted to write code for specific features, but I know that doesn't hit on what you're looking to do...essential crowd fund an app.

Out of curiosity, what RAID controller are you looking to support...or if its for software RAID, what feature are you looking for?

Ben Chambers replied to the topic Re: Plex does not see media files in the forums.
I've had issues with this, but completely unrelated (I think) to file permissions) and something to do with naming conventions. I've been too lazy to follow this document (specific to TV shows) but have always assumed that because I've ignored it, I'm going to run into issues.

Dirk Albring replied to the topic Re:New ClearOS setup, a DD-WRT router is bypassing my content filter? in the forums.
Why don't you just try it like Nick said and plug your ClearOS Eth1 nic into a LAN port on your DD-WRT router and keep the DHCP server disabled on your router since you're using the ClearOS DHCP server; especially this since you want to use the content filter. Connect the ethernet switch/HUB you're using in the house to another LAN port on your DD-WRT router. Keep your proxy and content filter servers running with the proxy set up as transparent. I have never had a problem where the content filter gets bypassed when using this configuration. Connected like this you can either use the DD-WRT router as a Wifi access point, or the HUB if it's something like a Unifi access point. You wouldn't have to dink around with any settings in the router after this, especially since you're using ClearOS as your gateway and it does all the work. Sounds like that's why you implemented it in the first place.
