after running PicApport stable for years now in a docker compose environment on an RPi3 it was time for a change and I successfully made it. So this post is here to share my experiences.
In the past I shared the photo folders via SMB to my RPi and mounted it into the container. Now I needed the Pi for other purposes so I decided to move this service directly to my NAS which is a FreeBSD based TrueNAS (v 12.0-U8.1).
The only (and very cool way) to run this service there is a FreeBSD Jail. As PicApport is written in Java, the dependencies on that system are not a big problem.
In the end I just need to konfigure a new jail, install the right Java pakage, configure PicApport as a service and care a bit for start/stop scripts.
Here is all you need to kickstart your own FreeBSD Jail:
I hope especially TrueNAS users will enjoy it !
