Duplicati works with standard protocols like FTP, SSH, WebDAV as well as popular services like Microsoft OneDrive, Amazon Cloud Drive & S3, Google Drive, box, Mega, hubiC and many others. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install Duplicati on your Synology NAS using Docker.
Install Docker via Synology “Package Center”.
Go to File Station and open the docker folder. Inside the docker folder, create one new folder and name it duplicati. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Note: Be careful to enter only lowercase, not uppercase letters.
Now create three new folders inside the duplicati folder that you created at STEP 3. Name them backups, config, source. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Note: Be careful enter only lowercase, not uppercase letters.
Go to Control Panel / Task Scheduler / Create / Scheduled Task / User-defined script. Follow the instructions in the images below.
Once you click on User-defined script a new window will open. Follow the instructions below:
- General: In the Task field type in Install Duplicati. Uncheck “Enabled” option. Select root User.
- Schedule: Select Run on the following date then select “Do not repeat“.
- Task Settings: Check “Send run details by email“, add your email then copy paste the code below in the Run command area. After that click OK.
docker run -d --name=duplicati \ -p 8200:8200 \ -e PUID=1026 \ -e PGID=100 \ -e TZ=Europe/Bucharest \ -v /volume1/docker/duplicati/config:/config \ -v /volume1/docker/duplicati/backups:/backups \ -v /volume1/docker/duplicati/source:/source \ --restart always \ ghcr.io/linuxserver/duplicati
Note: Before you paste the code above in the Run command area below, change the value numbers for PUID and PGID with your own values. (Follow my step by step guide on how to do this.)
Note: Before you paste the code above in the Run command area below, change the value for TZ (Select your current Time Zone from this list).
After you click OK on STEP 6 a new warning pop up window will open. Click OK.
After you click OK on STEP 7, select your “Install Duplicati” Task then click the “Run” tab. You will be asked to run Install Duplicati – click Yes. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Go back to STEP 1 or you will deal with karma 🙂
The installation process can take up to a few seconds/minutes. It will depend on your Internet speed connection. Now open your browser and type in http://Synology-ip-address:8200
