phpBB Forum on NAS?

Looks like it has to use localhost but the port needs to be specified after opening on the NAS. Installer now running!
Maria default port on dsm (if it’s maria 10) is 3307.

If you need to configure the db and the account beforehand then you will need to install phpmyadmin to connect to that maria instance and set it up.
 
Yep got all that lot sorted and it's up and running :) It needed to be localhost with that port opened :)

The issue I've now got is changing the permissions on the config.php file. I need to change them to (644 or -rw-r--r--) and I can't do that via Forklift for some reason..... I'm wondering if I need to set up FTP on the NAS and then FTP in and do it.......?

SSH into your nas and do chmod command that you need on that file
 
Right, how on earth do I do that? Okay I know I'd need to turn on SSH and use terminal, but what do I put in to contact the NAS (IP address??) and how do I navigate to the directory?
Sorry to ask, but I've never had to do anything like that with it...
 
ssh username@nasip

then enter your password and you will be in the command line.

From there you will need to run commands to get to your location

cd nameoffolder will change directory to that folder

cd .. mind the space! Will put you one level up in case you go into a folder that you didn’t mean to.

ls will list the content of the folder

chmod 754 myfile will alter the file. Just enter the code you need
 
Yay!......

Thank you very very much!
 
Another question guys I've got the forum up and running. However I've been asked why I'm not using HTTPS at all. Now I could get a Lets Encrypt certificate for the domain and install it on the NAS, but would that 'flow' through to the forum? The Web station doesn't seem to have any provision for certificates and HTTPS?
Any thoughts appreciated.

Okay if I can find a phpBB Docker tutorial I'll give it a go.......

Well I found this: phpBB Containers and read the Read.me and configuration sections. It looks hellish to me. The phpBB config I'm good with as I did run forums for 20+ years, but the rest.....
Sorry for opening this old thread I just found this via google.
If anyone still interested , here is the native package for Synology:

PS: The docker method also didn't work for me, it may need amendment the yml/docker file, in order to add mariaDB connection etc.
@tekguru : w.r.t. the https, that was my reaon to leave Synology NAS after having contacted support dozens of time, not solved. One agent even told , why use https? http is sufficient.
