When going to the control panel, settings -> Media, you can turn on iTunes sharing and/or DLNA (Media Server).
I wanted to turn both on, but I have a lot of multimedia on my NAS. I figured it would need quite a while, but this is exaggurated I think…
I use my NAS to store my movies and series and also backup my music on it. I wanted to turn this on as it’s a usual feature but here’s what happens;
I turn on DLNA. I was on teamspeak with a friend talking about both of our My Clouds and his works fine. I was waiting for a long time… Eventually it turned out to be around an 1h45/2h and there went the control panel.
500 - Internal Server Error.
I could see my LEDs of my NAS still flickering, meaning it’s busy, but had to restart as awesomely enough there’s no fix besides rebooting the whole system.
System reboots. I go back to Settings -> Media.
I didn’t even touch the settings and it INSTANTLY (after reboot) started again. All the way from the beginning. I figured to let it do it’s thing (again) and I started watching the task manager at the ‘home page’. It said my NAS’ CPU was at FULL CAPACITY and when I checked it was 50/50 Twonkey with another thing going on. Figured out Twonkey is a media server, so I’m assuming THAT is the setting it’s turning on. Nonetheless, this keeps building the database. I moved away from my PC & NAS so I wouldn’t interfere with the process.
I came back a while later and it was still busy. I let my NAS do it’s thing and started coding a little PHP, which shouldn’t interfere as I was only using few things on my PC.
After a couple of hours (talking about another 4/5 hours…) my NAS decided to hate me and again gives me the 500 - Internal Server Error mistake. Which brings my ‘story’ up to ‘now’, where I’m letting my NAS be as it is (as it’s still flickering) and haven’t rebooted it yet.
How can I even use this without the whole thing screwing up? I want to turn it on but apparently I’m not capable of doing that? How do I fix this? Anybody got an idea/a clue?
