403 Forbidden

Added by Ulrich G. 12 days ago


I am running a Synology NAS 1817+, and be in need for a replacement for TV Mosaic.
Tvheadend was recommended, so I first activated the SynoCommunity, and thereafter I installed the Tvheadend package from there, together with ffmpeg.
After the installation I used the url with the port :9981 for the web interface.
I was asked for a password during installation, and also when I used the web interface for the first time.
The password I entered on the web interface was rejected, and I ended up with a page: 403 Forbidden.
I found no way to enter the password again, so I deinstalled the package, and made a new installation.
This time I ended up on page 403 without a chance for a password.
I tried it now for several times, with, and without a password during installation, without success.
Furthermore I found no file from Tvheadend within the home/homes shared folder, and port :9982 is not reachable at all.
There is also no icon within the MainMenue of the DSM.

What did I wrong, how can I get these program running, without knowledge in programming?

If you look at the wiki, this issue is covered by the 2nd FAQ entry.

Good luck.

thank you for your reply, but I'm aware of this FAQ entry.

Unfortunately I tried to install the app on a Synology System from a package within the App-Center, as described somewhere in the Wiki.
So I used no Arguments and no Debian.
For a Synology System, the FAQ#2 has no description.

I had, during the installation the opportunity to enter a password (No Username!), but it ends up on page 403, with this password, and also if I leave the password empty, during installation. I even get no chance to enter a password anymore, as I end up on page 403 right away, without password-entry promt.

Also, I would expect to find at least some kind of file within the "home"-folder, but there is also no file related to tvheaded, after the "successful" installation.

Has someone a solution?

Simple basic linux knowledge.

netstat -lpnt

can show opened by processes ports.

can show running processes and resources.

Answer following questions:
1. Is TVH running?
2. Is port's are correct?

Hi, saen acro,
thank you for your reply also.
Unfortunately I have no basic linux knowledge, that is one of the reasons I use Mac, Synology and other GUI based systems.
I also have no command line on my synology, or be currently able to connect via ssh.

But anyway, the protocol of the Diskstation shows a successful installation of TVH, and with a portscan from my Mac I can also confirm the ports 9981, 9982.

The ports are disappearing, if I made a deinstallation, and reappearing with the reinstallation.
