With it you can manage the day to day of your company: create invoices, orders, delivery notes, estimates, accounting, inventory etc. So, whether you are a freelancer or an SME, don’t hesitate and try FacturaScripts which is totally free. It won’t take you more than a few minutes to discover that it has everything you need for your business. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install FacturaScripts on your Synology NAS using Docker & Portainer.
Install Docker via Synology “Package Center”.
Install Portainer using my step by step guide. If you already have Portainer installed on your Synology NAS, skip this STEP.
Go to File Station and open the docker folder. Inside the docker folder, create two new folders and name one facturascripts and the other one mysql. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Note: Be careful to enter only lowercase, not uppercase letters.
Log into Portainer using your username and password. On the left sidebar in Portainer, click on Stacks then + Add stack. Follow the instructions in the image below.
In the Name field type in facturascripts. Follow the instructions in the image below.
version: '3' services: mysql: image: mysql command: --default-authentication-plugin=mysql_native_password restart: always environment: MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD: mariushosting volumes: - /volume1/docker/mysql:/var/lib/mysql facturascripts: image: facturascripts/facturascripts restart: always ports: - 5379:80 volumes: - /volume1/docker/facturascripts:/var/www/html adminer: image: adminer restart: always ports: - 5380:8080
