Disclaimer: I don’t have a Synology box so can’t do much with these instructions, but I’m hoping creating this WIKI post (use the edit button below) will prompt others who HAVE installed Duplicati on a Synology box to flesh out these instructions.
This initial skeleton is based on @Wim_Jansen’s How to install Duplicati on Synology post, @Kareltje1980’s Synology installation post, and might eventually lovingly borrow @drwtsn32’s image from How to install Duplicati on Synology.
- First install mono (it’s under the beta applications IIRC)
- Download Duplicati (from Duplicati) and manually install by uploading it via the package manager.
- Make sure your user is part of the http group (or you may get “Connection to the server is lost” messages)
- You can run it via the web interface of Synology. If you want to run it outside of the web-interface, I think you will have to start it manually.
Note: Don’t access duplicati using the connect.to service, but login using the local IP:5000 for some reason it crashes then.
Synology Device status:

Mono 4.6.2-0096 Beta-version from the official Synology-store)

- Can't connect to DSM started Duplicati after Synology 6.2 update
- Synology NAS version - sqlite db location
- Synology - Duplicati service won't autostart
- Did your jobs disappear? Could be this…
- Getting “connection to the server lost” messages or “403 Administrator login required” errors?
Check that user is part of the http group!
- Getting “Failed to run the package service”?
Check for /root/.profile. (Failed to run the package service - Synology DS415+)
- Service not auto-starting?
Try this: Synology - Duplicati service won't autostart
- Stuff not working if connecting via DSM interface but does with direct connection?
Might be a DSM nginx bug. (Restore bug on Synology if path has spaces)
