OpenMediaVault releases 6.0.44 update

OpenMediaVault version 6.0.44 is now available. It seems like we only saw the previous release last week and that’s absolutely the case. This week’s update is another minor rollout, including nothing but the update of local files. The popular NAS OS is used by many to run everything from a backup server to a media streaming service.

It’s possible to buy the best NAS out there, install some drives, and you’re good to go. If you’d like even more control over your server and data, there’s always the route of creating your own NAS server. This allows one to put together a PC build and install a custom OS.

OpenMediaVault is one such operating system, packing a punch like those that power prebuilt enclosures. It has been around for many years, has a helpful community, and is based on Debian Linux, a stable and reliable platform for a NAS package.

What is OpenMediaVault 6.0.43?

While this release won’t be considered a major update, we’d still recommend installing it on your live NAS to ensure you’re running the latest version of the OS available. Here’s what is included in OpenMediaVault 6.0.43:


  • Update locale files.

How to install this OpenMediaVault update

Installing the latest version of OpenMediaVault on your DIY NAS couldn’t be easier. Follow these steps and you’ll be installing the latest release in no time at all:

  1. Log into OpenMediaVault.
  2. Go to System > Update Management.

Here you can check for and install available updates, as well as configure whether you want access to the OMV beta channel (not recommended for a live NAS).
