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 -q -O - | tar xzvf - -C /
wget -q -O - | tar xzvf - -C /
wget -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
