An open-source, community driven, media manager and transcoding server.
Running as daemon (default)
By default, Olaris will run in daemon-mode on port 8080. Once the Snap has been installed, point your browser to http://localhost:8080 and you should be prompted to create your account.
The daemon is managed by snapd. Useful commands:
Logs: snap logs olaris.olarisd
Stop: snap stop olaris.olarisd
Restart: snap restart olaris.olarisd
Start: snap start olaris.olarisd
Disable: snap disable olaris
Enable: snap enable olaris
Running in foreground
First, it's a good idea to disable the daemon snap disable olaris. Subsequently, you can simply run olaris.
Access to media
Snaps, by default, are strictly confined, this means access to your filesystem is limited. The best approach to access and “watch” changes is to enable the removable-media interface: snap connect olaris:removable-media. Once connected, restart Olaris and you will be able to add folders from /media, /run/media and /mnt.
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
To install Olaris, simply use the following command:
