  1. Hey Team, Thanks for the new release - Update got applied without issues (never having issues upgrading to stable releases) I was hoping on the "take snapshot" feature on the VMS page. I miss this so much. I tried to create them using the terminal but failed
  2. Just came across this thread - my cwwk board is still collecting dust after numerous attempts to get it stable... Did you need to hack in kernel parameters or was it stable "out of the box" - if so which bios (or board version if there are any versions) f.y.i. i post quite some items in the topic on servethehome (as Sjoerd obv.) See
  3. Any users with this motherboard or particular errors?
  4. anyone got a tutorial on how to handle and manage snapshots with virsh or qemu-img on unraid ?
  5. Hi Guys, I really need to make use of the virsh snapshots because I need to do some extensive tests on an old rhel6 vm so did some digging how to manage it. I installed an oracle linux 6 vm ( is rhel 6) and after some trial and errors I could successfully create snapshots (having a new snapshot file) and revert to the base image. Is not even that complicated (thought it would be) - to make sure the snapshot is create in the ol6 directory I first cd into /mnt/user/domain/ol6 virsh snapshot-create-as ol6 snapshot0 --description "first snapshot" --disk-only virsh snapshot-current ol6 virsh snapshot-current ol6 --name On disk a file got created "vdisk1.snapshst0" - sweet. The I updated the os with the usual "yum check-update && yum update". The new file got larger during the update process. Sweet. I could easily revert with virsh snapshot-revert ol6 snapshot0. And then when I rebooted unraid virsh no longer knows about the snapshot.. I assume the snapshot information is kept in memory then rather than stored on the usb ? How can I fix this? -
  6. Been trying today with virsh and qemu-img to try it from the cli - Using seabios (does it matter) and qcow2 but if I set current snapshot with virsh for that vm6 and do a dnf update or something else big the data still gets written to the clean base image - same goes for qemu-img.. added a image, no error but the snapshot file is not created after "root@towerpve:/mnt/user/domains/ol6# qemu-img snapshot -c vdisk1_202302161020.qcow2 vdisk1.qcow2". When I check if the snapshot is created: root@towerpve:/mnt/user/domains/ol6# qemu-img info --backing-chain vdisk1.qcow2 image: vdisk1.qcow2 file format: qcow2 virtual size: 12 GiB (12884901888 bytes) disk size: 4.3 GiB cluster_size: 65536 Snapshot list: ID TAG VM SIZE DATE VM CLOCK ICOUNT 1 1676537842 0 B 2023-02-16 09:57:22 00:00:00.000 0 3 vdisk1_202302161020.qcow2 0 B 2023-02-16 10:22:03 00:00:00.000 0 Format specific information: compat: 1.1 compression type: zlib lazy refcounts: false refcount bits: 16 corrupt: false extended l2: false Confused - I tried the virt manager docker but I couldn't find an option to make a snapshot in the first place. I'm not sure how virsh or qemu-img work together with unraid, but I'm using Xen at work which just snapshots an entire vm - no matter how many disk images there are attached to it.. Same goes for virtual box - which I'm using at home (on my workstation). Native support for managing snapshots is most welcome - unraid is quite complete (and when not, you can complete is yourself with plugins), but it kinda bothers me not having this feature - that's the reason why I (almost) moved to proxmox having unraid just as dfs inside it, but that would be counterproductive. I've been thinking about btrfs too but I deliberately did not format the vm cache nvme as btrfs - don't want to go that way: qemu it self can manage snapshots..
  7. Those prices are not consumer friendly anymore.. Got my eyes on the Gigabyte z690 UD (or maybe the z790) board. The z690 is around around 190 euro and has 3 nvme and 6 sata which suits my needs. Also it's a standard chipset and the board has not extra fancy bell and whistles. I assume unraid can deal with this motherboard just fine?
  8. Wrong thread 🙂 - I'm using nerdtools - not the pack. Apologies
  9. Request to add CCZE It is possible to add ccze to the nerdtools ? I am using that a lot on fedora and debian based systems and it would be nice if we could have that in the nerdtools as well.. Reason is that I cannot differ warning, crits and info and such from just plain white text scrolling down my terminal - I'm dyslectic and with this font and density, I just see a mash up of chars. I helps a bit that the syslog window from the web-terminal has colors for diff sections of unraid.
  10. Hey guys - got some issues.. Building new test rig * ncdu works fine with ncursus * iftop does not - export TERM=linux does not help * iotop give cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory. In this thread someone opted updating libffi would fix it but I cannot found that package in nerdtools
  11. Keep me posted - I was about the revert my own changes but I'll keep it the way it is for the moment. Edit: I can confirm that "hard-coding" the web-address works (as expected): It might be a bit out of scope to explain how to set this up, but is wordpress is suppose to be accessible from the outside. Couple of steps are necessary: Add a new CNAME to your domain. This might take a while for it to work - depending where the domain is registered. Setup the nginx reverse proxy manager (add a proxy-host) to point to the external side of the docker. In my case that's This address:port directs to the wordpress container. Also add the following lines to the nginx custom configuration for the proxy proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr; proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $http_x_forwarded_for; proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme; Replace the WordPress- and Site Address to the new address (http since https is not configured yet) At this point you could replace the WebUI url with the new http address so you can check if it works When you can reach the http address just fine, you can configure nginx to add a let's encrypt certificate. Quite easy: Go to the proxy-host in nginx, selected the SSL tab and request a new one for the url. Check "Force SSL", "HTTP/2 support" and "HSTS enabled". You also might want the check "Block common exploits" on the first tab. The request takes a couple of seconds. Important is that let's encrypt can reach the site from the outside though port 80. When this is done you need to update the WebUI url and the two url's in WordPress to https. When you can reach the site though https, you need to replacement the url's that are everywhere in your posts, links etc. I used blue velvet url replacement plugin. I might be possible to you have added (or the theme editor) urls into sections the plugin does not or can not look - to make sure everything is coming from the url you can use the network inspector of the browser (usual F12 brings up developer stuff) Sidenote: nginx proxy manager does not run on my unraid server but as a lxc container (from the exact same image) on my router that is running proxmox with opnsense and hassio as vm and pihole and the nginx proxy manager as lxc container.. I do too much tinkering with unraid and pihole and nginx are a bit too "mission critial" as is opnsense, to be down (well according to my kids and wife) Pictures say more than 1000 words so here they are:
  12. Hi, My current build is based around an very old 4th gen i7. Need to upgrade the hardware and scale down the array as it consumes too much power. I'm planning on replacing variety of disks (big/small) to 4x 4TB driver or 3x 6TB - plus 1 parity.. Also going to add 2 nvme's - one for file cache, one for vm's - and I can't remember what @SpaceInvaderOne recommended also placing the dockers on the "vm cache pool". Anyhow.. I recently bought an aliepress nas motherboard having 6 sata ports, 2 nvme bases around an N5105 - added 2x 16G sodimm. Getting unraid to start was painfull - had to add a lot of kernel bootparam.. Adding vm's and docker was doing altight - looked promising but had crashes from time to time and copying some vm's from my current unraid to this testset crashed after couple of Gigs got transferred. Could not get it to work under load - pitty - all in all lost 300,-- euros there (cant reuse the sodimms atm) Soo looking for a normal motherboard having at least 2x nvme (3 better) and at least 6 sata (8 better) *without shared pcie-lanes*. That way I don't have to add an extra disk/raid controller. Most motherboards contain a lot of rgb and overclocking junk I don't want and have those shared pcie-lines between the nvme-slots. I want stability and I do not want to get into the supermicro brand prices. Do such "servergrade" consumer motherboards exist - looking for intel socket 1700 btw. AMD seems to be more powerhungry. The only board that is nice enough (no idea about the costs) is this pretty awesome board from Gigabyte (also gigabyte fanboy so +1 I guess) - Are there boards similar to this one? - anyone know where the buy this in Europe (where a normal consumer can shop) and how much it costs? - anyone using for unraid but better question is maybe : can unraid handle this board?
  13. Hey, Not sure if this helps but I had same kind of issue. I took the following steps: * created a new docker network (docker network create web) - could be docker create network web (can't remember) * installed phpmyadmin from linuxserver (networktype: web) -> make sure PMA_ARBITRARY is set to 1 * installed mariadb from linuxserver (networktype: web) * with phpmyadmin 1) create the wordpress database with user/password and 2) then import your wordpress sql backup. Name of the server is the name of the mariadb container - default is "mariadb" - because both are in "web" they should see each other by hostname - if you go to phpmyadmin console you should be able to ping mariadb * install wordpress container (networktype: web) if the import of you wordpress backup went well you can just fill in the server, database, user and password. * if you have an existing wordpress install scp the wp-content of the site to the new site (and do a chown sshd:sshd -R ./wp-content after because after the scp action it like owned by root (my actions at least did that) * when that is done - all urls in your post are probably wrong. You can fix them with * when you are done stop the phpmyadmin container - Only start it when you actually need it. It's a very powerful but also very destructive tool.
  14. Mmm - I see, Still weird way - static eq. immutable data should be in the image, but it is true that wordpress updates on the fly. Maybe I need to revert my changes -
  15. Mmm - sitehealth of both is "good" - But both still run locally and I disabled REST for security purposes. You have no idea, well I think you have :-), how many hack attempts occurs each day. I run the wp-cerber plugin and wrote a little bash script around it to get all suspicious attempts and dump those ip-address into my opnsense router. What needs to configured correctly is the url. Mixing internal and external url gives errors therefor my current vm (migrating to docker + vm once my new hardware arrived - still running my new unraid-server as testphase on a trial-key with old hardware) can only be reached through the external url - hooray for the ngnix reverse proxy docker 🙂 - I might need to tinker with the docker-setting and change http://[IP]:[PORT:8080]/ to something hardcoded 🙂
