I followed Paul's suggestion and updated the online instructions about setting up php and added more details for other sections as well http://skdavis.net/tngsynology/

A far as intregrating with WordPress you can view my page at http://skdavis.net which is just one integration example of many on the web. As far as an automatic installer goes the plugin is the closest I have seen.

I did not use the TNG plugin. While the plugin can integrate users, that can get really complicated with updates. I like the TNG registration better than the one used by WordPress anyway. There are no logins to WordPress on my site but visitors can leave comments. I am using the Atahualpa Theme. Integrating TNG with WordPress depends largely on what you want your site to look like and what you want to provide to users. One problem with integration is there are so many options and ways to make your site appear, it's almost like where do I start?

Cees Kloosterman came up with a integration method that does not require the plugin. Here is the link to his site http://www.kloosterman.be/info/faq-tng/

I found the easiest way to integrate the two is install TNG in a folder inside the WordPress directory. If it is not installed here you will have issues getting the WordPress permalink to point to the correct folder. If the permalink doesn't point to the folder where the TNG index.php file is located, TNG will not load in WordPress.

I am thinking about writing step by step instructions about integrating TNG with WordPress but that may take a while. I have been unable to find anyone to pay me to stay home so I still have to work for a living.

Hi! I don't know whether it can help someone or not, but I used MyHeritage (http://www.beautifullife.info/web-design/best-family-tree-builders/). This online software allows you to interact with other genealogists, upload evidence gathered through different websites and create your family tree. Also it is possible to find the documents connected to your ancestors and download the original file. What I like the most is that you can't update both the offline and online family tree files at the same time. I'm not a professional, I just want to know my history like everyone here. I believe my children will follow my example and continue building my family tree.

I recently changed domain names so here are new links to the instructions. I placed a redirect command in htaccess but it may not work on some browsers depending on the security settings.

Instructions to install TNG on a Synology running DSM

Basic instructions to integrate TNG with WordPress
https://familyhistories.us/tngwordpress/

When running TNG with WordPress keep in mind that TNG was not written to be a WordPress plugin. It is a fully functioning stand alone program that can power a website without any help from WordPress. However when using both programs, TNG does not pass parameters WordPress expects so functionality will vary depending on the theme and how the two are integrated.
