How to Install Maintainerr on Your Synology NAS

Maintainerr makes managing your media easy. Do you hate being the janitor of your server? Do you have a lot of media that never gets watched? Do your users constantly request media, and let it sit there afterward never to be touched again? If you answered yes to any of those questions.. You NEED Maintainerr. It’s a one-stop-shop for handling those outlying shows and movies that take up precious space on your NAS server. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install Maintainerr on your Synology NAS using Docker & Portainer.

💡Note: This guide works perfectly with the latest Maintainerr v2.0.0 release.
