[SOLVED] Add smbclient PHP extension to XNAS embedded

I'd like to ask XigmaNAS development team to consider the possibility to add smbclient PHP extension to XNAS embedded. It consists of two files with a total size of less than 70 KB.

The reasons why this PHP extension may be included in the XNAS embedded are as follows:
  1. XNAS NextCloud extension (available through OneButtonInstaller) relies on it to connect to Samba shares,
  2. If PHP extension is missing, Nextcloud itself doesn't log clear errors for futher investigation.
    The user should make extra efforts to understand the reasons (use SMB connection test Nextcloud app).
  3. With this PHP extension Nextcloud becomes universal point for remote access to all files on XigmaNAS server, as well as public and personal Samba shares in local network.
  4. This PHP extension works flawlessly with SMB version 2.0+ and provides transparent access to own XNAS Samba shares via mobile devices.
    On Android smartphones is almost impossible to directly access Samba 2.0+ shares.
Workaround can be used to temporarily resolve the issue (thanks Maurizio) to get above two files and make them persistent after server reboot (post-init script).

Issue resolved in [EXTENSION] NextOwnCloud Version 0.3.4 - 2018.11.29.

A big thank you to Crest, developer and maintainer of the extension suit.
