In this SpotWeb Configure Synology tutorial. We are going to configure the SpotWeb program. So that you get an overview of the latest spots that are posted on the SpotNet network.
Set up SpotWeb retention
SpotWeb is still empty so it needs to be filled. But first, we’re going to specify in SpotWeb how far back to look.
Make sure you are logged in. If that is not yet the case.
If you opened SpotWeb via http://your-ip-adress-nas/spotweb. Go to Log in at the top right.
Log in here with the details. Which you specified during the installation.
Now click on Config in the top right and then Settings. Now go to theRetrive tab and enter the number of days atRetenention on spots (in days). I wouldn’t set it too high otherwise SpotNet will take a long time to fill. I myself keep it at 50. You can adjust this later then increase it in steps.
And then click Change. To save the settings.

You have to do this once the first time otherwise no spots will be available.

Go to the Planningtab. I put it every 5 hours update which is more than enough for me.
Ga naar tablad Taakinstellingen. Enter User Defined Script. The following on:
This can be different depending on the version of php. The above is for php version 7.4
You’re done now. It may take a long time the first time. Before the information is retrieved from the newsgroups. This depends on how many days, You look back in SpotWeb.
