Do you want to install the latest Unifi Controller 6 via Docker without a terminal? Are you tired of complicated guides? Do you want something quick and easy? Well today I will teach you how to install the latest Unifi Controller 6.5.54 on your Synology NAS in less than 30 seconds directly through the Task Scheduler option. It’ll be over in a couple of seconds and it’s essentially child’s play.
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 unifi. 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 “Unifi Controller 6“. 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 --detach --name=unifi-controller6 --restart=always --network=host --volume=/volume1/docker/unifi:/unifi --env=TZ=Europe/Bucharest --env=PUID=1026 --env=PGID=100 --env=RUNAS_UID0=false --env=BIND_PRIV=false jacobalberty/unifi:v6.5
After you paste the code in the User-defined script area, change the value for TZ. (Select your current Time Zone from this list.)
After you paste the code in the User-defined script area, change the value numbers for PUID and PGID with your own values. (Follow my step by step guide on how to do this.)
Note: If you have your docker folder in a different volume, then in the code above change /volume1/docker/unifi according to your own settings. For example: /volume2/docker/unifi or /volume3/docker/unifi etc.
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 “Unifi Controller 6” Task then click the “Run” tab. You will be asked to run Unifi Controller 6 – click Yes. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Go back to STEP 1 or you will deal with karma 🙂
