Setting up Joomla for external access

Unread post by Robdogga55 » Sat Jun 02, 2018 9:05 am

I bought a Synology ds416j about 12 months ago now and on and off I have been trying to get a Joomla website to work properly locally and externally. I followed a thread I found on these forums -
And Props to the user who made that thread cause I got further than I have ever been but my issue is when I try to load it on it won't load, however if I load it on it works! Idealy I have a domain (lets say its and I would like it to point to the website.

I am using PHP 5.6, MariaDB, Web Station and Joomla from the DSM Package Center.
- Web Station; HTTP Backend Server is Apache with personal site not enabled. Virtual Host;, HTTP port 8089, port 80/443 not enabled and HTTP backend server is Apache.
- Control Panel; Shared folder; has read/write perms to web folder, Group; http user group given read/write perms to web folder, External Access; DDNS: (tests okay), Portforwarding manually handled in router, Network; No proxy

- Web Station: External 8089, Internal 80
- DSM: External 5000, Internal 5000

Any help would be greatly appreciated! :)

You configured port 8089 in the router to access your website from the internet.

If you did that on purpose, why are you surprised that you have to use it?

So, with or without a domainname, you have to use that port to see your website.

If you do not want that, forward ports 80/443.

The Synology Knowledge base uses Joomla as an example. But you don't use the package. ... nology_NAS

I haven't tried it yet, but I am about to experiment.
