Running Portainer on Synology
Portainer offers more features and control over docker containers. Here are two simple steps to get it up and running on your Synology NAS
For whatever reason, using the docker UI in Synology to set up Portainer was not working for me. It would run, but it wouldn't connect to my endpoint. Finally I found that if I ran the docker command from the CLI it would work.
So, to get Portainer running, log in via SSH to your Synology and
1sudo su -
Then run the following docker command:
1docker run -d -p 8000:8000 -p 9000:9000 --name=portainer --restart=always -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock -v /volume1/docker/portainer:/data portainer/portainer:latest
Updating the image also a problem. If you use the UI it will have the same issue of not connecting to the endpoint. So it is better to just delete the container and run through the steps above again if you want to update.
