I have installed the necessary packages for samba, and looking to share my router attached usb flash drive share across the network. I found a page where it was showing that usb drive could be shared on the Services tab. I cannot find the services tab on my web interface. https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-user/services/nas/usb-storage-samba-webinterface.
Someone answered the question "Missing Services tab" but that answer is not clear to me. MIssing services tab
Can anyone please help me?
@moincse, welcome to the commnity!
Did you also install the LuCI (web GUI) app:
It won't show until you've installed the web app.
(I'm not sure how to make that more clear than the link you posted.)
Hope this helps.
Thank you very much for addressing my issue. I forgot to attach the screenshot with all installed apps. Just uploaded it. Hopefully you will get an idea what's going on there.
(I'm not sure why you didn't say "yes".)
- Please refrain from making major edits to the original post - it changes the context and flow of the post for future readers
- Have you rebooted since the install?
Actually, I was confused whether luci-app-samba4 serves the same purpose as luci-app-samba, so I did not clearly say yes.
And, although I edited the original question (added screenshot), I have mentioned that in my reply, so hopefully it's ok.
I did not restart the router after installing those packages. Just restarted it, and seeing the Services tab there. Thank you very much.
Btw all you need is install the
luci-app-samba/4 it will also install everything needed for the server. You don't really need all the other packages (utils, client, admin).
