Bash script to send contents of file containing URLs to Synology Download Station via API

This bash script will read a file containing a list of URLs line-by-line and send each of those URLs to a Synology DiskStation’s Download Manager via the published API.

Read the comments.

Note that, in user land, it might be easier to simply upload the text file to the Download Station. The below is useful if you want to programatically pass download tasks to Download Station, such as on the update of a web page, etc, etc.

UPDATE: This has been moved to github, here.

If you have any questions or comments on this script, please feel free to comment below. Thank you!

How to move the SymformContribution directory from one volume to another on a Synology NAS

So you’ve got Symform all set up and running on your Synology NAS, and you’ve been contributing space, but now the volume that has your contribution folder is getting full, adn you’d like to move it without disrupting the data that other Symform users like yourself have trusted you with. How to do it? Easily.

In this example, I’ll show you how to move it from volume1 to volume2.

First, stop the Symform service from Package Center.

Next, SSH into your Synology box and move the target directory to it’s new location, in this case, /volume2/SymformContribution

mv /volume1/SymformContribution/ /volume2

Next, edit the /volume1/@symform/lib/node.config file using vi and update the location by finding the line similiar to the following…


… and changing volume1 to volume2.

(Note, this is the same file that’s used to update the incoming port, see this post for more information.)

Save the file, and restart the Symform service.

That’s it!
