Syncthing on Synology

2 minute read Published:

Goal here is to install syncthing on an old armv5t Synlogoy DS212J, there’s probably other ways to achieve that but here’s the quickest method I ended up with: Get the binary corresponding to your architecture. Extract it and copy the binary under /usr/local/bin/syncthing and make it executable: $ tar zxvf syncthing-linux-arm-v0.14.46.tar.gz $ sudo mv syncthing-linux-arm-v0.14.46/syncthing /usr/local/bin/syncthing $ sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/syncthing Syncthing doesn’t need to run as root so I’d recommend to run the process from an unprivileged user, in my example user.
