Synology Installation

Magnus Box for Synology

This package is a installer for our Linux software. Once the installation is done, you should see the device appear as online on your dashboard. There is no interface provided on the actual Synology device. This package is simply meant to circumvent the tediousness associated with using SSH to manually install Magnus Box.

If you would like to install MagnusBox onto your Synology device via SSH, check out our Linux installation guide: Linux Installation - Magnus Box LLC Knowledge Base

Go to your Package Center and click 'Manual Install' in the top right of the window. 

Choose the file you downloaded from above and go through the prompts. From here, it should feel like a normal Magnus Box installation. Once finished, your device should appear online from your dashboard. From there, you may issue backups and restores from the web.

Don't worry if you happen to see a message talking about the package signing, just click yes and move on (signing is only important for packages on their official store).


There's a couple known issues that may happen when installing. 

  • Wrong credentials
  • Could not download the installer from your partner web dashboard
  • Insufficient permissions
  • Could not locate /opt/<companyName>

If anything goes wrong, reinstall the package, and pay close attention to the credentials. The package will not install correctly if any credentials are wrong. 

The other scenarios are far less common. If you need support with an issue regarding the Synology package, please provide us the contents of /var/log/packages/MagnusBox.log. This will help us correctly identify what the issue is. Please also verify if the /opt/<companyName> folder is present.
