DroboApps Admin won't install programs

Hi,

I’ve installed Apache and DroboApps Admin by moving the .tgz files to the DroboApps share and rebooting my DroboFS. But when I use DroboApps Admin to install programs I get the message e.g. “Installed DroboApp: FUPPES”, but the program is still listed as an option to install, and it does not appear in any of the other options, e.g. “Configure DroboApps”, i.e. the program actually was not installed. What is going wrong? The only way to install programs at the moment is for me to move the respective tgz file to the DroboApps share and reboot…

Thanks,

Stephan

Hi Stephan,

Glad you posted this as I am having the EXACT same problem. I had to install Apache, DroboAdmin, and DrobBear by hand. I want to now install the Pure-FTPd and same issue, says installed but NOTHING.

I just got my drobo about a week or 2 ago and if anyone has a solution for this PLEASE get back to us!

Has anyone found a solution to this problem? I am having the same issue.

The issue seems to be that the URLs to drobo.com are no longer valid.

You are correct, been doing some researching, this is the URL DroboAdmin calls to pull list of apps (on my FS) that are avail and where to get them:

http://www.drobo.com/droboapps/feed/textfs.php

This is outdated since they revamped their website. I have a request in to their support team to either update this file, or give me the NEW url that has same data but is updated. Will see what they come up with.

If they update the above url then it just works, if they give me new URL then you will need to modify the DroboAdmin code to use the new one.

Great, thanks, guys. It is good to know that it is not just me.

Don’t know if you already know this and have put this in your request, but the apps are here:

Brilliant work you two!
From that website Henk posted, it seems apps 1-28 are for DroboShare and 50 onwards are for DroboFS.

The feed link for DroboShare turns out to be a simple mod of agrilk’s URL:
http://website.drobo.com/droboapps/feed/text.php

When I get my DroboShare back into action, I’ll see what I can do with this new information.

If you’re inclined, you can mirror that apps folder so DRI don’t leave us out in the cold AGAIN (722 files, 198M):
wget -r http://website.drobo.com/droboapps/apps/
