Hi,

i try to install plugins over the webgui plugin page. Doesn't matter what plugin url i enter, i always get this:

plugin: installing: https://github.com/dlandon/unraid-snap/raw/master/powerdown-x86_64.plg
plugin: downloading https://github.com/dlandon/unraid-snap/raw/master/powerdown-x86_64.plg

plugin: xml parse error

 

I tried this links:

https://github.com/dlandon/unraid-snap/raw/master/powerdown-x86_64.plg

https://raw.github.com/bergware/dynamix/master/unRAIDv6/dynamix.cache.dirs.plg

https://raw.github.com/bergware/dynamix/master/unRAIDv6/dynamix.system.info.plg

 

And after this, no new plugin will show up.

Any ideas?

 

Thanks, Gery

I've seen some reports that a VPN could mess it up or that you may also need to manually specify a DNS address in network settings.

 

Very Help! Thanks.  I just upgraded from 5.0 to 6.0.1 and tried to install the Community Applications Plugin and got the following:

 

plugin: installing: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Squidly271/community.applications/master/plugins/community.applications.plg
plugin: downloading https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Squidly271/community.applications/master/plugins/community.applications.plg
plugin: downloading: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Squidly271/community.applications/master/plugins/community.applications.plg ... done

Warning: simplexml_load_file(): in /usr/local/emhttp/plugins/dynamix.plugin.manager/scripts/plugin on line 193

plugin: xml parse error

 

I then stopped the array then went to settings>system settings>network settings and changed my DNS1 to my gateway IP address which is 192.168.2.2  (this is what I had in my DNS settings for my unraid 5.0 box) .  After saving the settings and starting the array, I attempted to install the plugin and I had no issues with the installation process.

 

I was not sure if my gateway IP address is or would be the best setting for this.  (I am guess my gateway router redirects dns lookups to the DNS1 and DNS2 records that it has on file.)  I wanted to try Googles Public DNS Lookup and compare the results of the plugin installation log.  So to do this I uninstalled the plugin first.

 

Then I went to settings>system settings>network settings and changed my DNS settings to Googles Public DNS.  So for DNS1 I set it to 8.8.8.8 and DNS2 I set it to 8.8.4.4

After saving the settings and starting the array, I attempted to install the plugin and I had no issues with the installation process.  There was no difference in speed or in the log between the two plugin installations.

 

Log from Installation was the same for both network settings:

I am not sure it matters but, I do have a VPN for a remote office, but the VPN internet traffic is not routed over the VPN.  The gateway which is also the hardware that has my VPN configurations, uses google public dns records also.

 

At some point along the way (in the past) I changed from using my gateway ip address to using my isp DNS servers settings for DNS1 and DNS2.  I am guessing their lookup was having issues or something.  I am going to leave it set to 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 and leave DNS3 empty unless someone else has a better suggestion?

 

Thanks again,

 

Albin
