Description

My nas has been acting up and I dont know why. The issue started this afternoon when I turned it on to set it up and install the latest plugins for nextcloud and owncloud. The plugins menu opens but then loads for a very long time but then it says no entry has been found or one of several other errors. I tried to counter this issue by manually donloading the plugins and just uploading the plugins to the system to no avail. The only thing that happens is that i am able to select the plugin i want to upload and then after a long time loading screen it fails. If someone could just explain to me what the logs mean i would appreciate it.

George: I am surprised that they ever worked at all as that hardware is insufficient. FreeNAS alone requires 8GB or RAM (with more needed for plugins). The Realtek NIC should also be replaced. The forums have suggestions for affordable Intel NICs to use as a replacement, assuming that this system also supports more RAM.

I used an old pc as this was a fun build and try to recycle as much as i could. I was planning on upgrading the ram in the next couple of months. But what would you recommend? Spend a few grand on fixing the issues or rather just buy a better secondhand motherboard with cpu and ram ?

Good question for the forums. Lots of knowledgable folks with similar budgets and needs who are willing to give advice :-)

I just dont know why all of a sudden it started with these problems. I was using it and it had no issues but now all of a sudden it has issues. Well i guess it was a learning experience and a lot of time wasted in building a custom wood enclosure for my nas.
