  1. Hey plugin authors, Please consider wrapping the css/js calls in your plugins with autov(), so they look like this: <link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="<?autov('/webGui/styles/jquery.filetree.css')?>"> <script type="text/javascript" src="<?autov('/webGui/javascript/dynamix.js')?>"></script> autov() appends the timestamp of the file to the call, so it renders like this: <link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="/webGui/styles/jquery.filetree.css?v=1535741906"> <script type="text/javascript" src="/webGui/javascript/dynamix.js?v=1535741906"></script> The main benefit is that after an upgrade the css/js links will automatically change, which ensures the browser won't load stale copies of those files. And starting with 6.6.0-rc2, nginx tells the browser to permanently cache all css/js files that have version strings appended this way. This should give a minor speed boost to every page load, since the browser won't have to check and see if the file has been updated: autov() has been in Unraid since the current repository was added to GitHub on Oct 24, 2015: https://github.com/limetech/webgui/blame/master/plugins/dynamix/include/Helpers.php so unless your plugin targets a *very* old version of Unraid it won't have issues with this. If it helps, here are some examples of the change in the main webgui: https://github.com/limetech/webgui/pull/374/files

    Unraid OS version 6.6.0-rc1 available

    Just a tip, if you want to test the new GUI but aren't ready to upgrade your main system, you can run unRAID in a VM on unRAID: It is not officially supported, but it is a great way to test out the new functionality.

    Unraid OS version 6.6.0-rc1 available

    It is on the Upgrade Notes in two separate places already Interesting though, the notes say "the Update Assistant could have warned you of this in advance", so I guess it used to warn about that but no longer does?

    Note that users of LT's LE SSL certs need to keep this set to "auto" or there will be problems down the road. From the help:
  6. I like the banner that runs across the top of the page alerting you when there is a new version of unRAID, but when you click it, it immediately starts the install without giving you the chance to read the release notes. Please consider changing this behavior, it seems like it should take you to the /Tools/Update page rather than automatically starting the install.

    [Plugin] CA Fix Common Problems

    In fact, it did I actually didn't like that though, because it applied the update without a confirmation and without giving you the option to read the release notes. Maybe my issue is more with the banner than this plugin

    [Plugin] CA Fix Common Problems

    Hi Squid, would you consider adding a third button labeled "Update OS" that takes you here? /Tools/Update That is the next logical step after running the tests. I've been running the update assistant on two systems for every beta release, and adding this direct link would save some clicks.

  10. Since the webgui isn't available, you'll have to edit a file directly. See the "Solutions to Common Problems" section of that post for details.
  11. Your hostname contains invalid characters for NETBIOS. This has worked in the past even though it was invalid, but it causes problems in 6.5.0. More info here:

    SSL Certificate provisioning problem.

    No open ports are required for this - it uses a different type of Lets Encrypt authentication than the Lets Encrypt docker does Your first screenshot shows that it is trying to configure this FQDN: 599d2fe8e8bac20006b319c6875ee064306bd515.unraid.net If I nslookup that address, it returns, which is odd because the screenshot shows it is trying to set it to Is your server still on or did you change things around? I'm not sure what is going on here. Are you double-nat'd? (I'm not sure that would make a difference)

    Logout error in system log

    I'm guessing it means you are running an old version of unRAID It is a harmless message, pretty sure it was suppressed in 6.4.1
  15. There were a few commits I wanted to test and I thought "no big deal, I'll just put a quick wrapper on 'patch' and grab those updates." Well, it turns out 'patch' has a few shortcomings and by the time I was happy with the script there had been two more RCs and I completely forgot what I was so interested in testing But at least the script is ready for next time! Agreed. This should only be used on a test system!
