Howto: Web Pages on Synology DS211j

It is possible to enable personal web pages for all users that you have in Synoogy DS211j. This means that every user may have their own web pages served from their home directory. To enable this “User Home” feature, follow these steps:

  1. Login to DS211j using the admin account.
  2. Select “Control Panel” → “User” → “User Home”.
  3. Tick “Enable user home service”. Just ignore the Volume setting.
  4. “Control Panel” → “Web Services” → “Web Applications” → tick “Enable personal website”.
  5. Logout.
Physically the web pages are located in:
/volume1/homes/[username]/www

And they can be accessed via:

http://[your-nas-address]/~[username]/

You may mount the directory onto your computer to easily edit the files.

That’s it!
