How do you disable/uninstall AccessBook? I don't want to use it after all
Hello, if you want to disable AccessBook, you can do the following :
replace your /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf file with one of the following, depending if you had activated php or not :
==> this will disable AccessBook, but will keep your WebServer configured.
To remove AccessBook files,
Delete the created symlinks :
rm /shares/internal/PUBLIC/WWW/Welcome/AccessBook/SLink/* rm /shares/internal/PUBLIC/WWW/Welcome/AccessBook/SLsm2xs4/* rm /shares/internal/PUBLIC/WWW/Public/AccessBook_Stream/* rmdir /shares/internal/PUBLIC/WWW/Public/AccessBook_Stream
That's all. you have totally removed AccessBook.
Hi, i have replaced the .conf and removed
there is still
i attempted deleting it through PuTTY, but after the process was taking too long i cancelled it, and tried to go inside, only to see that it was a mount of /shares/internal
does this mean that when i attempted deleting cgknjfdok it has gone on to delete some of the contents of /shares/internal until i stopped it?
also it might be a good idea to include the instructions to unmount the said folder to the above step list, as well as point out what the SLink contents are.
I have never thought of this risk before…
the /shares/internal/PUBLIC/WWW/Welcome/AccessBook/SLink contains linux symlinks that have been established with the command ln -s.
Normally, when you delete a symlink, it does not delete the refered folder.
To correctly delete these symlinks, use the following command : ( i have tested it on my own mybook)
rm /shares/internal/PUBLIC/WWW/Welcome/AccessBook/SLink/* rm /shares/internal/PUBLIC/WWW/Welcome/AccessBook/SLsm2xs4/*
This command is immediate.
then check that there is no more links in the /shares/internal/PUBLIC/WWW/Welcome/AccessBook/SLink
I did some tests and there is a high risk that some data have been deleted when you tried to delete the AccessBook Folder …
==> I will recheck the AccessBook Code ASAP, to see how to prevent this risk …
==> I will provide soon an official uninstall procedure .
I'm going to install AccessBook in my MBWE.
I think it's for me a best alternative to a FTP server.
I wonder why someone would want uninstall AccessBook…
You don't use it, or something else?
Thanks and regards.
PD: TeinturMan u r our "suppot team" for the MyBook WD!! Thanks!!
I have installed accessbook and everything was working fine. I was just looking around at my HDD and I saw some strange folders (Slink and SLsm2xs4). I didn't know what is was so I just delete it (OOOPS!!) When it takes to long I cancelled the job and some files where missing… No big deal, I did some datarevovery to find my lost data…
But now I have the following problem when I try to open a file AcccesBook give me a "404 file not found" error. I had uninstalled en installed AccessBook about five times now but it wont help!! But, when I'm looking in the AccessBook-folder the simlinks are not there.
Conclusion: when I reinstall AccessBook the deleted simlinks won't be created.
Question: How can I create these simlinks, that accesbook is working again?
Thanks and regards,
you should not delete the Slink or the SLsm2sx4 symlink from your windows client , using Samba !
I though i had put a security against that :
normally, you should have a "veto file" line in your /var/oxsemi/smb.conf file
this line should contain "SLsm2sx4".
Had you reinstalled samba via optware one day?
In order to reinstall AccessBook :
1) : download a clean lighttpd.conf file :
cp /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf.bad wget http://mybookworld.wikidot.com/local--files/web-server/lighttpd_withoutphp.conf -O /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf /etc/init.d/lighttpd.sh restart
2) delete the /shares/internal/PUBLIC/WWW/Welcome/Main.pl file
3) delete te /shares/internal/PUBLIC/WWW/Welcome/AccessBook/HTML folder
4) reinstall AccessBook from the https://<Mybook>:3210 interface.
I've installed Access book on my MBWE and I wasn't able to make it work properly,
I Can browse the folders but as soon as i try to access a file, I get a 404 error.
by reading this post, it seems that it's because the symlinks where never created during the install, I unistalled accessbook and reinstalled it, nothing changed.
can you help me out ?
Can you indicate which Mybook Version do you own?
is it the Blue Ring or the Whitelight ?
if it is the blue ring, you may try the following :
chown -R www-data:www-data /shares/internal/PUBLIC/WWW
