Synology: Install Komga With Portainer

Synology Install Komga With Portainer

My previous guide for Komga involved the use of Task Scheduler. Today I’m offering a recommended and excellent alternative for installing the latest Komga version via Portainer. Komga is a free and open source comics/mangas server. You can easily browse libraries, series and books via a responsive web UI that works on desktops, tablets and phones. Komga supports the following file types: Comic book archives: CBZ and CBR (except RAR5 and solid archives) – Comic books in EPUB format – PDF files. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install Komga on your Synology NAS using Docker & Portainer.

💡Note: This guide works perfectly with the latest Komga v.1.10.4 release.
