Troubleshooting

Problem:Web interface has missing fields and/or items showing that have been uninstalled.
Solution:Clear your browser cache.
P:I mounted the drive using the command line or GUI tool and I can’t pick that drive in the shared folder device dropdown.
S:Never mount a drive with anything other than the openmediavault web interface. This creates the necessary database entries to populate the device dropdown.
P:I only see a few items in the web interface like the user section of Access Rights Management.
S:You did not login as the admin user. This is the only user that can access everything.
P:I get an error every time I post in the forum especially if it is a long post and/or has links to external pages.
S:The error is deceiving. Please don’t keep trying to post. The spam filter has flagged your post and it will need to be approved. Please be patient.
P:Samba is slow.
S:Read these threads - Tunning Samba for more speed and Tuning Samba for more speed 2
P:Samba share password is refused from Windows 10.
S:To fix the problem you need to change the Network Security LAN Manager authentication level.
P:The web interface keeps rejecting my admin/user password.
S:If the password is correct then this is most likely caused by the rootfs partition being full. This command can help track which folders are the biggest df -hx --max-depth=1 /
P:I have problem accessing the web interface with Firefox.
S:Try the solution mentioned in the Sencha ExtJS forum or the Mozilla bugtracker.
