My previous guide for IT-Tools involved the use of Task Scheduler. Today I’m offering a recommended and excellent alternative for installing the latest IT-Tools version via Portainer. IT-Tools groups together over 50 useful tools for developers and people working in IT. The cool thing about this amazing tool is that it requires no setup, no persistent volumes, you can start to use it immediately at the speed of thought. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install IT-Tools on your Synology NAS with Docker & Portainer.
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.
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 it-tools. Follow the instructions in the image below.
version: "3.9" services: ittols: container_name: IT-TOOLS image: corentinth/it-tools healthcheck: test: curl -f http://localhost:80/ || exit 1 mem_limit: 2g cpu_shares: 768 security_opt: - no-new-privileges:true restart: on-failure:5 ports: - 5545:80
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:5545 Choose one of the Tools you want. Follow the instructions in the image below.
