What is Openmediavault 6?

How to Install Openmediavault 6 on Raspberry Pi 4

Step1: Connect to your Raspberry Pi using SSH and update it.

Open a terminal window and connect to your Raspberry Pi 4 over SSH. If you’re on the latest version of Windows 11 you can use the cmd terminal or Powershell. If not you will need PuTTY. Follow our installation guide here.

Connect to your Raspberry Pi over SSH on Linux type.

ssh [email protected]

The first thing we need to do is to update and upgrade the Raspberry Pi OS to ensure it has all the latest package updates installed.

sudo apt update -y && sudo apt upgrade -y

Step 2: Install Openmediavault 6 by running the bash Install script

Type the following into your terminal to execute the OMV bash install script from Github (Note the installation can take up to 30 minutes to complete).

sudo wget -O - | sudo bash

Please note: if you have made any SSH port or username changes installing OMV using this script will reset them.

Towards the end, the OMV install script closes the active SSH connection. This is completely normal and as expected as the install script will change the network and user settings.

Important!. You will need to wait a few minutes before trying to access the OMV 6 Dashboard through a browser. This is because the OMV install script will be finishing up in the background.

Step 3: Connect and log into the Openmediavault dashboard.

Navigate to your chosen browser and connect to the Openmediavault interface by putting your Raspberry Pi IP Address into the address bar:


You have now successfully installed Openmediavault 6 on your Raspberry Pi 4.
