Pwndrop is a self-deployable file hosting service for sending/sharing your private files over HTTP, HTTPS and WebDAV. The container is similar to the Synology file sharing option. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install Pwndrop 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 pwndrop. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Note: Be careful to 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 Pwndrop. 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=pwndrop \ -p 8047:8080 \ -e PUID=1026 \ -e PGID=100 \ -e TZ=Europe/Bucharest \ -e SECRET_PATH=/mariushosting \ -v /volume1/docker/pwndrop:/config \ --restart always \ ghcr.io/linuxserver/pwndrop
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).
Note: Before you paste the code above in the Run command area below, change the value for SECRET_PATH. Add your own secret path instead of /mariushosting.
After you click OK on STEP 5 a new warning pop up window will open. Click OK.
After you click OK on STEP 6, select your “Install Pwndrop” Task then click the “Run” tab. You will be asked to run Install Pwndrop – 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:8047/yourownsecretpath create a Username and a Password then click Create Account. Follow the instructions in the images below. Note: You have previously created your own secret path at STEP 5.
Login using your Username and Password you have previously created at STEP 9. Follow the instructions in the images below.
