Mariadb is one of the most popular database servers. Made by the original developers of MySQL.

In this tutorial, we are going to use this image: linuxserver/mariadb


In DSM go to Docker -> Registry and search for mariadb:

Download the second result, linuxserver/mariadb image. Pick the latest image, when asked.

Once downloaded, go to the Image tab and double click on linuxserver/mariadb.

Click Advanced settings and Enable auto-restart (optional) in next screen.

In the Volume tab click on Add folder and create a folder on your NAS where the configuration files of the container will be located and set the Mount path to /config like this:

Skip the Network tab.


In Port Settings tab set the local port number to any number (for instance, I set it to 3336):

Skip the Links tab.


In Environmnent tab set the variables (click the + symbol):

VariableValue
MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORDSet this to root password for installation (minimum 4 characters)
PGID< your groupID >
PUID< your userID >
TZ< your timezone >


Apply changes and save everything.

Now you can use the phpMyAdmin (covered in separate tutorial) to connect to MariaDB.
