Update of Twonkymedia Server 6 on the Conceptronic CH3SNAS and the D-Link DNS-323

Twonkymedia ServerGerman version of this tutorial

This tutorial is deprecated, please use the tutorial for the current version.

Since a while there is a new version of the Twonkymedia Server 6 available. Many readers asked me how to update to this version without loosing the configuration of the already installed version. This article describes the update for the following devices:

  • Conceptronic CH3SNAS
  • D-Link DNS-323

For other devices, please follow this article. If you are searching for the article regarding the initial installation (not the update), please look here for this.


As all data created by the software (Database, Covers and so on) is stored in /ffp/opt/twonky/data/, the upgrade is very simple as shown below.

First stop Twonky:

sh /ffp/start/twonky.sh stop

Save the data-directory:

cd /ffp/opt/twonky/
mv data /ffp/tmp/twonkydata

Install the new Software. Before following the commands below, please take a look a this Website under “NAS & Beta Versions (Limited Support)” to determine whether 6.0.38 is the current version. If not, just search for the DNS-323-Version and replace the URL:

rm -R /ffp/opt/twonky/*
cd /ffp/opt/twonky
wget http://www.twonkyforum.com/downloads/6.0.38/twonkymedia-dns323-6.0.38.zip
unzip twonkymedia-dns323-*.zip
wget http://wolf-u.li/u/175 -O /ffp/opt/twonky/twonkymedia-server-default.ini
rm nassetup.exe nas-installer nas-uninstaller install.nas twonkymedia-dns323-*.zip
chmod +x twonkymedia twonkymediaserver plugins/* cgi-bin/*

Now copy the data-directory back to it’s origin:

cd /ffp/opt/twonky/
mv /ffp/tmp/twonkydata data

Now test if everything works by running the daemon-startscript manually:

sh /ffp/start/twonky.sh start

For advanced users: Run “ps -ef|grep twonky” should show several processes now

Connect your Browser to Port 9000 of the NAS, e.g. to configure Twonky. Now you’re done 😉 Have fun with Twonkymedia Server!
