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.
Install Container Manager via Synology “Package Center”. If you run an older DSM version (under 7.2), search for Docker instead of Container Manager.
Go to File Station and open the docker folder. Inside the docker folder, create one new folder and name it statping. 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 image 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 StatPing. Uncheck the “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=statping \ -p 5480:8080 \ -e DB_CONN=sqlite \ -v /volume1/docker/statping:/app \ --restart always \ adamboutcher/statping-ng
After you click OK on STEP 5 a new warning pop up window will open. Click OK.
After you click OK, type in your DSM Password then click Submit. Follow the instructions in the image below.
After you click Submit on STEP 6, select your “Install Statping” Task then click the “Run” tab. You will be asked to run Install Statping – click OK. 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:5480 Choose your Language, SQLite as Database Connection, a description for the status page and your own Username and Password. Click Save Settings. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Add your own Username and Password you have chosen at STEP 9 then click Sign In. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Type in http://Synology-ip-address:5480/dashboard in your browser to access the Statping dashboard. Click Services then + Create to add the website you want to monitor. Delete all default services that you don’t want to monitor and keep only your favorite services. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Start adding the website you want to monitor then save the settings. Follow the instructions in the image below.
