Step 1

Before we start, please ensure you have Docker installed. This can be installed through the Synology Package Center.

Step 2

We now need to create the Docker folder. Head into File Station and open the Docker folder. Select Create, choose Create folder and name it unpackerr.

Step 3

We will now head into Control Panel > Task Scheduler > Create > Scheduled Task and click User-defined script. (see demonstration)

Step 4

In the window that appears, insert the following:

In the General tab, In the Task field, enter Unpackerr. From the User list, select root. Uncheck the Enabled option.

In the Schedule tab, Select Run on the following date (make sure It’s today’s date). Now select Do not repeat.

In the Task Settings tab, under Notification, You can choose to turn this on, otherwise skip this. Now copy-paste the following code into the Run command area. Now click OK.

docker run -d \
--name unpackerr \
-e PUID=1026 \
-e PGID=100 \
-e UMASK=002 \
-e TZ=Europe/London \
-v /volume1/docker/unpackerr:/config \
-v /volume1/data/downloads:/downloads \
cr.hotio.dev/hotio/unpackerr
