I understand your thoughts about security. Unfortunately the standard may have to be modified and the clients have to be updated .... If you add that many OPDS client only support a small part of the official spec, you end up with a hard problem. I remember exchanging some mails with Hadrien Gardeur (author of OPDS specs) about 2 years ago and we agreed that HTTP Basic Auth over HTTPS was a good compromise (I didn't say it all good) and all other solutions will be harder to be adopted. I'll try to find the thread.

Last time I checked most Android OPDS client will not work at all with self signed SSL certficate and some won't work at all with HTTPS.

About your problem with some Android browsers, it may be linked to this bug :
https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=1353

It was fixed not so long ago and maybe it's related.

No real answers sorry. But as you said, you can always use a VPN.

Problems with the Synology update package

I've just run the Synology update package and then moved to the browser to inspect the new version of COPS.

Unfortunately it tells me

Quote:
Please install the php5-intl extension and make sure it's enabled
And that

Quote:
File /volume1/epub/metadata.db not found, Please check
However, not only is metadata.db at that location, Calibre itself can remotely access it there.

So could somebody please tell me how to install php5-intl, and why can't COPS read metadata.db?

Thanks for your thoughts. It is all fine. I was trying to see if there were work arounds. And I realize the hardships around developing software. I appreciate the work you put here.

As far as security goes, most people might not recognize that is an issue, so maybe a slight warning about it and possible solutions can help. My intention was to inform users here.

cheers

You don't have to care about php5-intl, that's not important.

Can you try reboot your Nas ? or uninstall / reinstall the package ?

I... Well, I wrote a rather lengthy reply detailing what I modified and how many times I restarted it, and how it still couldn't access the DB.

And then I took your last piece of advice, uninstalled, restarted, reinstalled, and now it's working perfectly well.

Thanks for your help, @vlad59.

I have the same problem ... but the 'uninstall COPS' -> 'reboot NAS' -> 'reinstall COPS' recipe is not working.

And, btw, thanks for all the good work with COPS.

COPS on a Raspberry Pi with NFS storage

First of all, thanks for COPS, seems like pretty fast on my raspberry.

Second of all, I have to say that my setup is perhaps a little non-standard. COPS is installed on a Rasperry Pi in /var/www. The library is primarily on my laptot, but it's regularly rsynced to Xtrend 9500, which is a linux based satellite receiver with linux standard network capabilities. So it's internal 1 TB hard drive is used as a NAS drive.

Xtrend export settings:
Code:
/media/hdd/ostatni/knihovna/ 192.168.1.30(rw,sync,no_subtree_check)
(knihovna directory has been recursively chmodded to 777)

on the raspberry this export is mounted with:
Code:
sudo mount xtrend:/media/hdd/ostatni/knihovna /home/vlad/ebooks
my /var/www/config_local.php has:
Code:
    $config['calibre_directory'] = '/home/vlad/ebooks/';
    $config['cops_title_default'] = "Knihovna";
    $config['cops_use_url_rewriting'] = "0";
When I remotely connect my raspberry at http://9x.x2.xx8.2xx:9998/index.php (remote port 9998 is forwarded to local port 80) I get nothing but a blank screen, but the page is named "Knihovna" as set in config_local. The checkconfig.php says:


Any ideas what could be wrong? Thanks for your replies.
