Beautiful web server index H5AI

Hi. I found this little nice creature and I am still wondering why WD is not using it as its own web file viewer app:

Is anyone with skills and goodwill able to explain how I could install it and use it to view files on MCEX2?

Thank you in advance!

I looked through the install instructions and looks like they are very straightforward instructions. You can give it a try yourself. I don’t see anything too difficult in there. I just don’t have the latest firmware so I don’t want to try this on mine. But we already have PHP version 5.4.16 (or possibly newer -that’s what was in the previous firmware that I am still running on).

ok, I placed _h5ai folder inside /var/www/ and visited http://<MCEX2_IP>/_h5ai and this is what i got:

What should I do next? I found several httpd.conf files, but I do not know how and where I am supposed to insert

DirectoryIndex index.html index.php /_h5ai/server/php/index.php

 Any help?

I would also like to ask if it is possible eventually to access the dirctory listing fom outsid my LAN (using port forwarding)
