cubeSQL on Synology NAS

June 6th, 2016 | 17 Comments »

Thanks to Christopher Rieke, there is now an installer that is able to install cubeSQL on Synology NAS.

You can download installer script from: synology_cubesql.spk

Some details:

  • Script is tested only on 64bit systems and depends from the return value of the the “uname -m” command.
  • You can also check out the content of the spk file by extracting it with “tar -cvf
  • You need to create a shared folder called “cubeSQL” to be able to successfully launch cubeSQL.
  • He decided to store databases and settings there. So it is easy to make a backup of these folders.

    Used this Script on Synology DS218+ (ApolloLake)
    You have to add the new Intel Celeron Architecture in the arch section of the INFO File (open *.SPK with 7ZIP and edit INFO File)

    arch=”x86 avoton cedarview braswell bromolow dockerx64 apollolake”

    Should look like this.

    THX to Christopher Rieke for the Script
