Webgrabplus on Container Station for Qnap



I’m totally new to Docker and I’m trying to install webgrabplus on Qnap.
I installed Container Station on the Qnap NAS.
I created a new Docker container and pointed the /config and the /data folders to a share.
I populated the WebGrap++.config.xml with my channels according to the documentation.
Now when I start the container from the Container Station GUI I see this in the console, but no xml is written to the /data folder.
Did I miss something?

It’s got a cron file within the container that runs at 2am every night.


Okay… if that would’ve been documented I wouldn’t have searched for 8 hours to make it work. :smiley:

I have no idea how I can edit this cron job in the container on Qnap. Everything is done through a web GUI. Probably I can ssh into the Qnap and then what?


I figured it out. It’s quite simple once you know it.

  1. ssh into the Qnap NAS
  2. run the command: docker exec -i -t webgrabplus-1 bash
    (webgrabplus-1 is the container name)

Thank you!


You don’t need to exec in. The file you need to modify is in the data folder you mapped. It’s all explained in the readme: https://github.com/linuxserver/docker-webgrabplus/blob/master/README.md#setting-up-the-application


You mean /config/wg-cron

I need to exec in to be able to run webgrabplus manually for testing purposes. I’m editing the configuration file.
Thanks for the info!
