My previous guide for DokuWiki involved the use of Task Scheduler. Today I’m offering a recommended and excellent alternative for installing the latest DokuWiki version via Portainer. Dokuwiki is a simple to use and highly versatile Open Source wiki software that doesn’t require a database. It is loved by users for its clean and readable syntax. The ease of maintenance, backup and integration makes it an administrator’s favorite. Built in access controls and authentication connectors make DokuWiki especially useful in the enterprise context, and the large number of plugins contributed by its vibrant community allow for a broad range of use cases beyond a traditional wiki. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install DokuWiki on your Synology NAS using Docker & Portainer.
DokuWiki 2023.04.04 release.This guide works perfectly with the latest
Install Portainer using my step by step guide. If you already have Portainer installed on your Synology NAS, skip this STEP. Attention: Make sure you have installed the latest Portainer version.
Go to File Station and open the docker folder. Inside the docker folder, create one new folder and name it dokuwiki. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Note: Be careful to enter only lowercase, not uppercase letters.
Log into Portainer using your username and password. On the left sidebar in Portainer, click on Stacks then + Add stack. Follow the instructions in the image below.
In the Name field type in dokuwiki. Follow the instructions in the image below.
version: "3.9" services: dokuwiki: container_name: DokuWiki image: ghcr.io/linuxserver/dokuwiki healthcheck: test: curl -f http://localhost:80/ || exit 1 mem_limit: 4g cpu_shares: 768 security_opt: - no-new-privileges:true restart: on-failure:5 ports: - 8399:80 - 4443:443 volumes: - /volume1/docker/dokuwiki:/config:rw environment: PUID: 1026 PGID: 100 TZ: Europe/Bucharest
Note: Before you paste the code above in the Web editor area below, change the value numbers for PUID and PGID with your own PUID and PGID values. (Follow my step by step guide on how to do this.) 1026 is my personal UID value and 100 is my personal GID value. You have to type in your own values.
Note: Before you paste the code above in the Web editor area below, change the value for TZ. (Select your current Time Zone from this list.)
Scroll down on the page until you see a button named Deploy the stack. Click on it. Follow the instructions in the image below. The installation process can take up to a few minutes. It will depend on your Internet speed connection.
If everything goes right, you will see the following message at the top right of your screen: “Success Stack successfully deployed“.
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:8399/install.php to start the installation process. Type in your own details, choose your favorite language, choose the license attribution then click Save. Follow the instructions in the image below.
The installation process is finished. Go straight to STEP 11.
Now open your browser and type in http://Synology-ip-address:8399 then click Log in at the top right of the page. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Type in your own Username and Password that you have previously created at STEP 9 then click Log in. Follow the instructions in the image below.
