How to Install Heimdall on OpenMediaVault 5

How to Install Heimdall on OpenMediaVault 5

In this video we’ll take a look at how to install Heimdall on OpenMediaVault 5 (OMV5).

We’ll use a different approach in this video than we have in previous videos to get Heimdall installed on OMV5. This time we’ll use something called “Stacks”.

Get logged into your Portainer control panel. Open your local connection and then click “Stacks” in the left column.

Next, click “Add Stack”.

Name the Stack “heimdall” (without the quotes) and then copy and paste the following into the “Web editor” section:

---
version: "2"
services:
  heimdall:
    image: linuxserver/heimdall
    container_name: heimdall
    environment:
      - PUID=1000
      - PGID=1000
      - TZ=Europe/London
    volumes:
      - /path/to/appdata/config:/config
    ports:
      - 80:80*
      - 443:443
    restart: unless-stopped

You’ll need to change the “volumes” to point to the correct folders on your OMV server, but once you’ve done that, you can then click the blue “Deploy the stack” button near the bottom of the page.

*Because OpenMediaVault runs on port 80, you’ll need to change this to another port that is easy to remember. For instance, I changed it to port 6942 on my server setup, so my code on that line looked like this instead:

- 6942:80

Once the stack is deployed, you can go to: http://your-server-ip:6942 (change the port in the URL as needed) and access your qBittorrent installation.

That’s it! You’re set to go!
