Channel Version Published

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.
