Installation on FreeNAS

ferdl 10 months ago • updated by Vlad R 10 months ago 6

Hello,


is it possible to install filerun in a jail on FreeNAS? FreeNAS is based on FreeBSD.


Is it further possible to access and manage the folders/files (shares) which are on the FreeNAS system? Could there be problems with the file-owners or the permissions?



Best Regards

I think the FreeNAS documentation can help with that: https://doc.freenas.org/9.3/freenas_jails.html#add-storage

As mentioned earlier, we do not use FreeNAS ourselves, so we can't provide better help with this.

Under review

I see no reason why no.

Can't remember my login but on topic:


The biggest problem is going to be a jail on BSD with IonCube. I tried to run Filerun on an OS zone in SmartOS and it failed because of the requirement for IonCube (IonCube only builds in 32bit officially for Solaris and it was easier to use an LX zone rather than source build IonCube in Solaris). There are official IonCube builds for FreeBSD 9 64bit at least, so you might be able to finagle it. - though current FreeNAS is using much newer BSD. There might be some ports you could use; I'm not familiar with the current library available.

I have no experience with FreeNAS but it looks like it can also run Docker.

Thanks for your answers!

I will try to install it in a jail, if this fails i will try it with docker.

But my other question is the following: Will there be permission problems when i try to bind my local files on the NAS into filerun? The files on the nas are owned by another user as www-data. How can i make this work?
