WebServer and AccessBook Presentation (Mybook Live)

E-mail Print PDF



This Feature pack will install a web server (lighttpd) on your Mybook Live, configured as follow :

- a Public web site, that can be accessed at http://IPAddressOfMybook:8080

This web site serve pages that are in the Public/WWW/WWW-pub folder

by default, a index.html file displaying "Hello World" is installed.

- a Private Web Site that can be accessed at https://IPAddressOfMybook

This web site serve pages that are in the Public/WWW/WWW-priv folder.

by default, the AccessBook Application is Configured.

- The AccessBook Application : remotely access your Mybook Live 's files and share them with your friends...

Your friends can connect to your Mybook Live, and have a web portal containing links to files you have given access. These links can be of 4 types : File manager, Photo gallery, simple url or "Scanned Documents". Additionnally, some plugins can be installed to retrieve cinema descriptions from the Web or to  play mp3 files remotely.

As the administrator of AccessBook, you can create new links to some ressources on your Mybook, change the link icon, and give permissions only to users you want to.

The File Manager link will allow you to download , upload files ,  rename , copy / cut / paste files...

You can Search your files and retrieve them easily all over your mybook, even when you are remotely connected...

You can define some thumbnail and description to your avi files....

Some predefined actions are also provided : unrar, create thumbnail of a jpg file, play avi files....

The scanned documents allows you to browse and view multiple page documents that has been scanned as several JPG files....



You can also configure the "Home access" , which will be easier for accessing from home tablets or home computers.
Only home users can connect via this access, and you can allow some users ( typically children) , to connect without passwords. Home Access is restricted to local network and cannot be accessed via internet.

Is it possible to sort the display of files by date rather than alphabetically? Or even the possibility to sort by size also.

Web server file size limitations
26 Tuesday, 26 February 2013 13:09
guest1
Hello,

Is there a way to go around the file upload limitations of 800MB and display the uploading progress?

Also, I noticed that filesize of bigger files, ie. 4GB movies, isn't displayed correctly, nor can I seem to donwload them
them completely with the web server? Why is this so?

Your help is greatly appreciated and more power to you and the whole community.

teinturman: hi, on the whitelight mybook, web serverr uses the lighttpd component, which has this bug for big files.
also, i tried for a long time to find ways of going over the size limitation, with no success. i have now given up...
WD My Book Live Duo

Hi there,

This looks good. I'v just bought a 6TB MBLive Duo and runs Raid 1(full backup).
Can I use this feature pack(and all the others, like NZBget) on a MBL Duo or is it only working for MBL single?

Thanks in advance.
teinturman : yes, the feature packs will be compatible.
note that I have not tested them myself as i do not own such device, but i have not received any negative feedback on the feature packs running on the mblive duo.
MBlive duo is exactly the same as single from an operating system point of view...

Thanks

New Firmware Update Issues

Hi Teinturman,

I have a couple of questions about the new update 02.32.05-046 from WD also. After installing this and then the feature packs manager, the featurepact manager web access is really sloooooow, 5 minutes sometimes before login occurs.

ssh login is also very much slower. Is there anything I can check or try in order to see what the issue is?

Thanks.

Sean

teinturman :
please, give some time to your mybook ( a few days) as it is possible that after the firmware upgrade, the mybook has started a "disk Check" phase, making it unresponsive...

Access denied to Web Server shares

I recently updated to the latest firmware and installed the latest fpkmgr.

Now I cannot mount the web server shares on my windows 7 PC. I get the following error:

"An error occurred while reconnecting W: to \\MyBookLive\Public\WWW
Microsoft Windows Network: Multiple connections to a server or shared resource by the same user, using more than one username, are not allowed. Disconnect all previous connections to the server or shared resource and try again."

What gives? This used to work just fine.

Hi, this is a typical error message with windows ( not due to the mybook ) :
windows will only allow you to connect to a server with a single user and password.
==> first disconnect all your drives on your windows 7 computer, then reconnect to the share , using the user you want to use.

Create thumbnails

Could you please share the technique you're using for creating thumbnail images. From reading it sounds like GD or ImageMagick is the recommended way but based on phpinfo() it doesn't look like either of those are installed. How are you doing it?
teinturman : GD or imageMagick are very slow. I use cjpeg and djpeg tools from command line.

Want to build PHP pages
20 Friday, 24 August 2012 17:26
guest1
I know PHP and would like to create some PHP pages on my WDMBL. For example create my own customized photo gallery using the images stored in my public share on the WDMBL. It sounds like I should be able to do this since this feature pack comes with lighttpd? Is that correct? My programming skills are good but I have extremely limited exposure to how to get the server set up to support PHP to begin with. Could someone please help me understand how much additional configuration would be needed in order to get the WDMBL set up to the point where I can start creating PHP pages? I was looking at the following article but it sounds like some of this might already be taken care of by the feature pack: http://redmine.lighttpd.net/projects/1/wiki/TutorialLighttpdAndPHP#Configuration Will my WDMBL be ready to go immediately after installation of this feature pack or do I need to set up CGI or FastCGI? Will I need to set up a PHP package or is that also already taken care of in the feature pack? Any information you can provide me on what I'm getting myself into would be greatly appreciated.

teinturman :
the webserver + accessbook will completely configure the web server.
copy your php pages to the public/WWW/www-priv
folder (mypage.php for example )

Then launch them via :
https://ipaddress/mypage.php

as this is the restricted area of Accessbook, you will first need to create an accessbook user and password.

I installed the feature pack manager and can't figure out how to install a feature path. Can someone please direct me? When I click on "Feature Packs", I see a link to install from URL, but I don't know which url to put.

Thanks,

Hello Julio, you do not need to paste any links :
you simply need to click the "Flower" button in the feature pack manager,
all available feature packs will be displayed.
simply click install for the feature pack you want...

Where is the conf file??

I ant to enable directory listing in the web server. I suppose, I can do this in lighttpd.conf. However, I cannot find it! Where is it?
It is not in /etc or /opt.

Even if I do a

cd /
find . | grep lighttpd

I do not find anything.

Any hint?

The Web server itself runs fine.

teinturman : DON T DO THAT !!!!!!
this would be a critical security risk ! ! ! ! !

Hi all, please, if you are using 7.9 on a mybook that does not have the latest firmware, please upgrade to v8.0 :
7.9 : version compatible with firmware 02.01.06-026 including WD2GO and WDPhotos
8.0 : Important bug solved : if you are not using the latest firmware , please upgrade ASAP.
if you have installed 7.9 and you are not using the latest firmware, and you have lost access to the web interface, please launch the following :
first, check that you have the 7.9 bug :
/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

==> if you have the error "Failed" 000-Apollo3G-ssl file not found , then you have the 7.9 issue.
==> launch the following commands :
rm /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-Apollo3G-ssl
/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

then, you should have access to the web interface back,
please upgrade asap to the Webserver v8.0
Added user cannot access files- solved

Hi,

I worked on the problem a little more and I figured it out. I only gave "reading rights" to the added users via the WD interface. After changing to "writing rights", I was able to access the files with the added users through the web.

What remains is a little awkward feeling towards the fact, that I have to permit the fundamental right to change the files in order to access them through WebAccess. Sure, one can disable these rights on the level of WebAccess, but I would feel safer if I only had to permit "reading-rights" on every level of administration.

Perhaps this could be a new add on your to-do list for the next update.

Thanks for the help,

Added user cannot access files

Hi there,

I recently installed the feature package on my MBL 2TB. It's a great addition, however I do not seem to grant access to certain shared files for newly added users. Everytime I try to reach the file for testing purposes a message tells me to add the same account to the MBL via the WD interface. I did so, but still no joy. The only users who seem to have free access to all files are admin and (my also newly added user) netsroC.

Perhaps you can help me.

Thanks in advance,

netsroC

teinturman : On the Mybook Live ( not mybook White) ,
to access a share that have been created for a specific user, you need to create the exact same user ( case sensitive) in AccessBook. ( password can be different, but i would recommend that you use same password to ease reminding it)

then, you can connect to AccessBook with this newly created user and access the files from the shared folder.

command line instructed to install package does nothin when return key pressed.

it just goes to the next line.
why?
(yes ive pasted the line script in one single line)

through ls command I realised fpkmgr_install.sh... was... already there in /root/ ? WTF ?

trying to execute it by typing fpkmgr_install.sh then return : nothing
copy pasting again in doubt the one line commandline install you instruct: nothing
to me it doesnt seem to be installed, just copied there...
what am i missing ?

set the forwarding port 443 and 8080 as directed later
http://ipaddress works very well as expected...
leads to WD menu with shitty miosharewarecrap

http://IPAddressOfMybook:8080 confirms by NOT FOUND that nothing has ben installed or enabled

https://IPAddressOfMybook same.

i cannot believe that after more than 14 years of computing im battling with this that much

please anyone. help ???
teinturman :
Hi, clearly, the fpkmgr_install.sh has been correclty downloaded,
but it does not launch when you type fpkmgr_install.sh

- have you installed anything prior to the feature pack manager ?
- have you connected via putty with the "root" account?
- can you try to launch the following commands :
cd /root
ls -la
sh fpkmgr_install.sh

fpkm problem or someting else?

all was working fine until i had to tweak some ip settings (new static ip) after that everything worked (vitual drive ,acces to my book live etc ) but it didnt show the mybook in my network in win 7 x86 (other pc where , mediaplayer also ) so i couldnt access it from my mediaplayer anymore .(went back to old static ip but problem stayed.

(after all changes i rebooted , i even put all my computers back on dynamic ip's )

after the new firmware install ( couple of days ago )and new fpkm install it was visible again !
yesterday (after instal of new modem from my provider) had to make changes to stat ip for my network and the same problem occured .

could this problem occur because fpkm is changing something in mybook network ?
could the problem be resolved by uninstalling and reinstalling fpkm
or downgrade firmware (if possible ) and upgrading it again ?

New MyBook Live AccessBook installation - Share Pictures errors
4 Friday, 13 May 2011 21:58

Hi,

Just installed AccessBook on a new MyBook Live, rebooted the device, looking terrific - however selecting Share Pictures results in the following errors:

Warning: Missing argument 2 for SetPerms(), called in /shares/Public/WWW/WWW-priv/AccessBook/inc/_Common_Functions.inc on line 278 and defined in /shares/Public/WWW/WWW-priv/AccessBook/inc/_Common_Functions.inc on line 516

Trying to trace it through; amended line 278 from SetPerms($file); to SetPerms($file,""); appears to improve the issue,
however clicking a thumbnail just displays an empty page.

In addion I occasionally get:
Warning: getimagesize(/shares/Public/Shared Pictures/test.jpg.GIF) [function.getimagesize]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /shares/Public/WWW/WWW-priv/AccessBook/inc/_Common_Functions.inc on line 162

Also clicking the preview button returns the following error for each image:
Warning: unlink(/shares/Public/Shared Pictures/......JPG_medium.JPG.GIF) [function.unlink]: No such file or directory in /shares/Public/WWW/WWW-priv/AccessBook/inc/_Common_Functions.inc on line 249

As a complete novice would be nice to get the complete package running hence appreciate any assistance,

Anyway to deactivate the admin account on Accessbook when I'm not using it? I hate to leave that kind of access open to the outside world if I have the ports open on my router. Thanks.

i do not provide such option, and some features are only available to the admin account,

but if you know what you are doing, you can edit manually the
/usr/local/WWW-priv/WebUsers.htdigest.user file
and replace, for the admin user "WEB" with something else, like "WAB"

restoring WEB will re enable the account...

i guess you mean the redirection link that will allow you to connect to the feature pack manager from AccessBook ?
you can manually create it :
connect to AccessBook as admin, then click the config Manager link.
create a new link by clicking "+"
then select simple URL
type "Feature pack manager" in the title and description
type : /fpkmgr/
in the url field.

Your link is now created.
