How to Install Statping on Your Synology NAS

Statping is an easy to use Status Page for your websites and applications. Statping will automatically fetch the application and render a beautiful status page with tons of features for you to build an even better status page. This Status Page generator allows you to use the MySQL, Postgres, or SQLite databases on multiple operating systems. An alternative for Statping is Uptime Kuma. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install Statping on your Synology NAS using Docker.

Note: This guide works perfectly with the latest Statping 0.90.80 release.
