How to add my QNAP TS-251+ media folder to Owncloud?


Hi guys, I am new to NAS, gone one recently (QNAP TS-251+) and installed owncloud app.

I have a lot of pictures on my NAS which is stored in an encrypted volume in my storage pool. I have created an owncloud account and purchased the iphone woncloud app as well.

The question is, how can I mount or add my media library folder to owncloud so that I can access the photos on my NAS across all my devices.


I finally got it how to add my folder, but it shows the below error. No idea what does this mean and how to fix this.

Note: “smbclient” is not installed. Mounting of SMB / CIFS and SMB / CIFS using OC login is not possible. Please ask your system administrator to install it.
