TrueNAS has numerous settings contained inside System > General. These allow a wide range of system customization, from changing the web interface address, localization options, and data collection to SED, console, and storage options.
|GUI SSL Certificate||The system uses a self-signed certificate to enable encrypted web interface connections. To change the default certificate, select a different certificate that was created or imported in the Certificates menu.|
|Web Interface IPv4 Address||Choose a recent IP address to limit the usage when accessing the administrative GUI. The built-in HTTP server binds to the wildcard address of 0.0.0.0 (any address) and issues an alert if the specified address becomes unavailable.|
|Web Interface IPv6 Address||Choose a recent IPv6 address to limit the usage when accessing the administrative GUI. The built-in HTTP server binds to the wildcard address of 0.0.0.0 (any address) and issues an alert if the specified address becomes unavailable.|
|Web Interface HTTP Port||Allow configuring a non-standard port to access the GUI over HTTP. Changing this setting might require changing a Firefox configuration setting.|
|Web Interface HTTPS Port||Allow configuring a non-standard port to access the GUI over HTTPS.|
|HTTPS Protocols||Cryptographic protocols for securing client/server connections. Select which Transport Layer Security (TLS) versions TrueNAS can use for connection security.|
|Web Interface HTTP -> HTTPS Redirect||Redirect HTTP connections to HTTPS. A GUI SSL Certificate is required for HTTPS. Activating this also sets the HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) maximum age to 31536000 seconds (one year). This means that after a browser connects to the web interface for the first time, the browser continues to use HTTPS and renews this setting every year.|
|Language||Select a language from the drop-down menu.|
|Date Format||Choose a date format.|
|Console Keyboard Map||Select a keyboard layout.|
|Timezone||Select a time zone.|
|Time Format||Choose a time format.|
|Crash reporting||Send failed HTTP request data which can include client and server IP addresses, failed method call tracebacks, and middleware log file contents to iXsystems.|
|Usage collection||Enable sending anonymous usage statistics to iXsystems.|
After making any changes, click SAVE. Changes to any of the web interface fields can interrupt web interface connectivity while the new settings are applied.
This screen also contains these buttons:
Saves a backup copy of the current configuration database in the format hostname-version-architecture. This file is downloaded to the computer accessing the web interface. Saving the configuration after making any configuration changes is highly recommended.
See System Config Backups for more details about backing up the system configuration.
Changes the system configuration settings. Browse to a previously saved configuration file to restore that configuration.
This can cause unexpected changes to system settings. Investigate both the current system settings and the settings stored in the other configuration file before uploading a config file to TrueNAS.
