Hi again today,

The Subsonic 4.7 beta 1 package is finally ready. As with every beta there may be some errors or bugs, if you don’t want to risk anything stay with 4.6 and wait for the 4.7 stable release.

What is new?

  • Subsonic 4.7 beta 1 included, infos here
  • Included html5 interfaces MiniSub and Subtunes. You can choose which one you want to install during the installation, upgrade process.
  • Included DSM links to the html5 interfaces
  • I have included an auto-RAM-detection part to the so you don’t have to configure it by yourself. I copied this from the „“ by patters, click here to see the original script. It now sets the max Java heap size automatically depending on the amount of RAM available.
  • Enabled https on port 4041 for save streaming (don’t forget to change your firewall settings for Internet streaming). If you don’t want to have https enabled change line 12 in the /volumeX/@appstore/Subsonic/ to SUBSONIC_HTTPS_PORT=0.
  • minor bug fixes

Upgrading / installation works like before (more info here). If you want to be 100% sure not to lose your database, copy the Subsonic folder to a save place or use the subsonic-backup-creator… Your music folder will not be touched.

Download and install it automatically from the germany Synology package repo (more info here)

or directly from here and install it manually:

ARM version: Subsonic4.7b1-023-ARM.spk (37 MB)

x86 version:   Subsonic4.7b1-023-x86.spk (36,2 MB)

Hi everybody,

one week after the release of ownCloud 4 I am happy to announce that my package is also ready to be installed.

BUT (!) as you may have seen on the ownCloud homepage or in the german post on my site the bug tracker is heavily loaded.

I had to do some changes on my package, too:

  • The big change is that ownCloud 4 was not able to be run in a frame. So I had to change the type to „popup“ which opens a new tab instead of using the nice internal frame.
  • The second construction site was the backup and recover routine in my scripts. There are a few things you have to look at while updating:
  1. If you placed your data in volumeX/web/owncloud/data (the default path) everything should work fine. If you placed it somewhere else make sure to copy it to a safe place outside the /web/owncloud/ folder before updating, the whole folder will be deleted during update
  2. If ownCloud does not display your data although it is in the right place, logout OC, clear your browser cache and log back in. Now a message like „scanning files and folders“ should appear.

You may encounter further issues and bugs within OC itself so please be patient, I will upload new versions as soon as they are available.

Now have fun with ownCloud 4.0.0 , it will be available at the german Synology package repo soon: it is available at the german Synology package repo now:

You can also download and install it manually from here:

ownCloud4.0.0-003.spk (5.6 MB)

Hi guys,

Subsonic 4.7 beta 1 is out and I am working on a new package, which will also include Subtunes and MiniSub html5 interface.

Here is a link to the ownCloud 4 release schedule. The new version will come out on Tuesday and I will make a package as soon as I can (I have to work a lot these days…).

First of all: Sorry, I uploaded a wrong version of ownCloud to the community package hub yesterday. This version will not work properly! I have already uploaded a new version, which will be available soon is available now. You can also install the new version manually from the link below.

What is new?

Beside the new version of ownCloud itself, I have updated the script a little bit, so your ownCloud data and config folder will survive further updates.

How can I install The package?

You can either download the package from the link below and install it manually or you add

to your package sources.

Both methods are described in the Subsonic installation guide.

How can I update?

There are two folders („data“ and „config“) that need to be saved. They are both in the web/owncloud folder. You have to copy them to a place out of the owncloud folder, install the new package and copy them back.

1. With windows explorer go to: \\Your.NAS.IP.Adress\web\owncloud\ with mac goto smb://Your.NAS.IP.Adress/web/owncloud, the linux guys will know what to do ;).

2. If there is a error like „you don’t have the permission bla bla…“ you have to access your Diskstation via ssh (e.g. with putty) and type:

cd /volumeX/web/owncloud
chmod 777 ./data
chmod 777 ./config

X is the volume number your web folder is stored.

Now try to copy them again.

3. Uninstall the old ownCloud version and install the new one (3.0.3-02).

4. Restore the data and config folders.

You have to do this only once. For further updates I have scripted a backup routine.

If you have any questions or encounter any issues, let me know. Now have fun with the package:

ownCloud3.0.3-02.spk (3,2MB)
