Hello. I am a new user of the WD EX2 and I need some help in figuring some things out.
First off, I installed the Wordpress app on a fresh setup of my NAS, no data stored, with Plex being the other app installed, but it appears I am restricted for any file uploads. My current limit shows 0MB and using a plugin to raise the limits does not help. Is there a file I can edit to change those limits? I pulled Drive1 and tried manually adding or editing the wp_config.php or php.ini file on my computer but nothing works. Do I have to install phpMyAdmin as well?
My second most important issue is figuring out how the drives are supposed to go to sleep. I have turned on the relevant settings, but the only indication that the drives are sleeping as they should is by seeing the power light going into ‘breathing mode’. Previously, before the firmware update, if I recall correctly, the other two drive lights would go out as well. My question now is, if those drives are supposedly sleeping, why do their temperatures remain extremely high? I could do a full secure wipe or huge data writes on those drives in a computer and never have those ~55C temperatures. Shouldn’t they be cooler if left overnight without any usage? I have read that these drives are built to withstand these temperatures 24/7, but my intuition tells me otherwise not to risk it, since the NAS is my backup. So I wish to clarify if this is the norm for most units, or is mine faulty?
Thank you for reading.
