TLSv1.2 for older ReadyNAS systems (RAIDiator 4.2.x & 5.x)

I was made aware of the fact that the last browser updates finally broke access to the ReadyNAS web UI on systems still running RAIDiator 4.x and 5.x. The problem is that the Apache web server on these boxes doesn’t support TLSv1.2 and all modern browsers by now have dropped support for anything below that. I already built a patch set with an updated version of Apache and an update OpenSSL package some two years ago but since I closed the add-on section for RAIDiator 4 and 5 on this web site they’re no longer accessible.

Since I don’t want to bring back the old parts of the web site I decided to put the patches on GitHub:

RAIDiator 4.2 TLSv1.2 update (x86 only)

RAIDiator 5 TLSv1.2 update (ARM)

Use at your own risk. They work for me – your mileage may vary. If you encounter any problems with these add-ons please report them in the “Issues” section on GitHub.

Note: If you do a factory reset or an OS reinstall you need to also install the update again.

Gitea 1.12.5 (ReadyNAS OS 6 x86 / ARM)

Gitea 1.12.5 has been released so I updated the apps/add-ons for ReadyNAS OS 6 (x86 & ARM):

Gitea 1.9.4 (ReadyNAS OS 6 x86 / ARM)

Gitea 1.9.4 has been released so I updated the apps/add-ons for ReadyNAS OS 6 (x86 & ARM):

Gitea 1.9.0 (ReadyNAS OS 6 x86 / ARM)

Gitea 1.9.0 has been released so I updated the apps/add-ons for ReadyNAS OS 6 (x86 & ARM):

Versions for RAIDiator 4 (x86) will follow later.

ReadyNAS OS 6.10.0 breaks PHP 7 and related add-ons

Although my ReadyNAS OS 6 systems don’t show the update yet ReadyNAS OS 6.10.0 has been released. Together with new features it also brings with it a new version of the built-in Apache web server, now at version 2.4 instead of version 2.2 in older versions of the firmware. Since PHP has to be complied and linked against the Apache version it is running under the current versions of the PHP7 add-ons will stop working on ReadyNAS OS 6.10.0. This of course affects all add-ons that depend on PHP, most notably OwnCloud and NextCloud.

I’m already working on a fix but it isn’t easy. In fact I need to build an own repository for the 6.10.x releases and I’m not sure how to best handle that in the future for similar breakages. For the moment my recommendation is to NOT upgrade to 6.10.0 unless that firmware fixes serious problems for you.
