    Hello, have installed freeNAS on an old computer.
    Im trying to install plugins system, the freeNAS system is version FreeNAS-8.2.0-RELEASE-p1-x64.
    I have created two zfs datasets (jail & software).
    When Im trying to install plugins system, I follow http://doc.freenas.org/images/7/72/Jail3a.png.

    The problem is that when I choose a PBI file to upload, then no loading bar that indicates that the file is even uploaded.
    I get only a loadingbaren that says it is beeing installed. Then the loadingbar stays like that for ever and ever.

    I would been thankful if someone could help me :)

    Old computer? How old? What file system? HD size? Memory?

    Ill just tries to ssh into freeNAS.
    First i ran the command: cd var
    then the command: cd log
    But when im trying to do: cd messages i get the respone not a directory.

    What does this mean? Havent i got any error messages in the process of installing plugin system?

    This happens because messages is a file, not a directory. Either transfer it to your machine and open it with a text editor of your choice, or try
    Code (text):
    1. cat messages
    instead (this will display the file contents to the ssh console)

    I used Google Chrome instead worked like a charm.
    Im guessing that FireFox that i used earlier is the problem!
