MyBook World Edition Alternative Web Interface
I have created very simple web "administration" tool. It will allow you to
edit some configuration files and you can view several parameters via web browser. This
web interface runs on port 8080, which means that you can use it together
with WD's original web interface.
Log in to your MyBook via ssh, su to root and run these commands:
wget ftp://ftp.penguin.cz/pub/users/mhi/mybook/busybox.tar.gz -q -O - | tar xzvf - -C /
wget ftp://ftp.penguin.cz/pub/users/mhi/mybook/haserl.tar.gz -q -O - | tar xzvf - -C /
wget ftp://ftp.penguin.cz/pub/users/mhi/mybook/webif.tar.gz -q -O - | tar xzvf - -C /
These commands will download three tarballs from my ftp site and install them
on your mybook. The first one is recompiled version of BusyBox with http
server support. Second is enhanced shell script support and third one is file is web interface + startup scripts.
NOTE: DO NOT INTERRUPT the first tarball download and installation, otherwise
you will break /bin/busybox binary (this will brick your MyBook!).
Now reboot your MyBook to see if it works. Default username for http authentication is root and password "mypassword". This can be changed in /etc/httpd.conf
