My previous guide for Website Shot involved the use of Task Scheduler. Today I’m offering a recommended and excellent alternative for installing the latest Website Shot version via Portainer. With Website Shot you can generate a full web-page screenshot and automatically save it on your Synology NAS. Website Shot provides a rich interface to make any kind of web screenshots online for free with no limits. The simplest way to take a full page screenshot is here! The container supports long pages of up to 20000 pixels. The biggest advantage of using Website Shot hosted on your own Synology Server is that you have full privacy compared to third-party widgets that you install on your browser for the same purpose. The supported formats are PNG, JPEG, WEBP. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install Website Shot on your Synology NAS using 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.
Go to File Station and open the docker folder. Inside the docker folder, create one new folder and name it websiteshot. 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 websiteshot. Follow the instructions in the image below.
version: "3.9" services: websiteshot: container_name: Website-Shot image: flowko1/website-shot mem_limit: 3g cpu_shares: 768 security_opt: - no-new-privileges:true restart: on-failure:5 ports: - 3616:3000 volumes: - /volume1/docker/websiteshot:/usr/src/website-shot/screenshots:rw environment: PASSWORD_PROTECT: 1 PASSWORD: mariushosting
Note: Before you paste the code above in the Web editor area below, you can change the value for PASSWORD_PROTECT if you want to. 1 is for password activation. 0 is for password deactivation.
Note: Before you paste the code above in the Web editor area below, change the value for PASSWORD. Type in your own password. mariushosting is an example for a password. You will need this password later at STEP 9.
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:3616 Type in the website for which you want to take a full screenshot. Type in your own password that you have previously created at STEP 5 then click Capture Screenshot. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Click Download Content to download the screenshot on your PC. All screenshots will be automatically saved in the folder that you have previously created at STEP 3.
Enjoy Website Shot!
