When the shit hits the fan …

it’s going to be messy. Well, what can I say. When releasing the Nextcloud 20 add-on I failed to test it on a NAS without PHP 7.4 already installed. Thus I didn’t notice that the automatic pulling of the required PHP packages didn’t work. Sorry for that.

Now, why don’t I just fix it? Simple reason: my development environment – which happened to be on a ReadyNAS – crashed with a 100% data loss. I’m trying to recover what I can but that takes time. Time I currently don’t have for there’s loads of work at my normal day job.

So for all of you who already tried to install the Nextcloud 20 add-on, here’s the work-around for you: Just download and install the PHP 7.4 add-on which is now available free of charge. Then install Nextcloud 20 and you should be a happy camper again.

Again: sorry for the troubles and have fun with your ReadyNAS.

Gitea 1.12.5 (ReadyNAS OS 6 x86 / ARM)

Gitea 1.11.5 has been released so I updated the apps/add-ons for ReadyNAS OS 6 (x86 & ARM):

NextCloud 20.0.1 (ReadyNAS OS 6 ARM & x86)

A lot of updates later … here’s Nextcloud 20. Since this version included a lot of changes and requires PHP 7.4 to run I had to create a new download item to prevent users from accidentally downloading this version without having PHP 7.4 installed. You can get the new app for your ReadyNAS with ReadyNAS OS 6 (x86 and ARM) here:

Note: This version will also update any existing PHP version on your ReadyNAS to PHP 7.4 and change the way PHP is loaded from the web server. In short: this may break other PHP apps running on your ReadyNAS.
All packages from Nextcloud 17 to 20 that may be needed to upgrade from Nextcloud 16 are also included in the download.

PHP 7.4.11 (RNOS 6 x86 & ARM) [firmware 6.10.0 or newer required]

PHP Web Programming Language (Logo)

After a long time and a lot of obstacles mastered it is finally done: PHP 7.4 for the ReadyNAS! So here’s PHP 7.4.11 for the ReadyNAS boxes running ReadyNAS OS 6.10.0 or newer on x86 or ARM CPUs:

Note: With PHP 7.4 there’s also a change of the integration into the web server of the ReadyNAS. Instead of using an Apache module that is loaded on every request this version now uses a stand-alone demon process (FPM). This should result in lower RAM consumption, better performance and better scalability. That said it may not work with older apps.

This release requires ReadyNAS OS 6.10.0 firmware or newer!

Syncthing 1.5.0 (R6x86 & R&ARM)

syncthing

I just noticed that while I kept updating Syncthing this was never announced. So I just wanted to say that Syncthing 1.5.0 is available for ReadyNAS OS 6 systems (ARM and x86).
