Unofficial Documentation - old
- Warning! This is the old version of "Unofficial Documentation"! It is only for unRAID v4 and v5. If you want the current version, go to Unofficial Documentation.
Welcome to the User Contributed Content section of the wiki.
These documents are all submitted by ordinary users, unRAID community members. Some are more expert than others, but each can contribute, for the benefit of all.
Here you can find:
- Answers to common questions provided by knowledgeable unRAID users.
- Saves hours of forum reading by finding many answers all in one place.
All users are encouraged to document any information they believe relevant here. Even the most trivial detail will likely help someone else. Here's a great quote from the Wiki Help :
The number one rule of wiki editing, is to be bold. Dive in and make changes. Other people can correct mistakes later, so have confidence, and give it a try! There can be all kinds of editing conventions, rules, and philosophy governing the editing of wiki pages, but the "be bold" rule overrides these!
