MagicMirror Servermode on Synology DS

  • Moderator

    according to the synology wiki:

    ipkg update; ipkg install nano

  • Ok, i managed to edit the config.js file to a full whitelist with nano. To install nano I had to do

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install nano

    After that, I run “node serveronly” in the MagicMirror folder and I got the following log:

    root@synology_gitlab:/home/git/gitlab/MagicMirror# node serveronly

    MagicMirror will not quit, but it might be a good idea to check why this happene
    d. Maybe no internet connection?                                                
    If you think this really is an issue, please open an issue on GitHub: https://gi 

    But I don’t get a connection when opening “http://localhost:8080”.

    At this point, I come to the conclusion, that it will be much easier and less stressful to run the MM Server on my Pi3 (managed to install and configure it at work in three hours less). Besides that, the ressources need for running a MM container seems to be very high, working with ne Synology while running MM is a pain in the ***.

    From my point of view this topic can be closed. I’d like to thank everybody who participated and wanted to help me! You guys rock 🙂
    sincerely yours Andre

    @AnyKey said in MagicMirror Servermode on Synology DS:


    This usually means that you already have the MagicMirror running and you have attempted to start the server again. You’ll need to kill that process before starting it up.
    Try ps ax | grep node and if you see the line 9589 pts/1 Sl+ 0:03 node serveronly or something similar, then the Mirror is already running.
    sudo kill -9 9589 (or whatever the process number listed is) will stop it.

    I’m sorry this has been so frustrating. You’re almost there.

  • @AnyKey try to change the port which is used by Magicmirror. The Diskstation seems to use port 8080 for something else.
