Installing Traefik

Within TrueCharts, our aim is to make it as easy as possible to secure your Apps. To support this, we supply a separate Traefik "ingress" app, which has been pre-configured to provide secure and fast connections.

The current TrueCharts implementation of Traefik doesn't support TCP/UDP Ingress, only HTTP/HTTPS



In order to set up Traefik, you will be required to change the default TrueNAS WebUI access ports. These ports are by default set to port 80 for HTTP and port 443 for HTTPS. This is necessary as we will be setting Traefik up to function as a reverse proxy, and receive traffic on these host ports.

In the TrueNAS Menu, navigate to System > General. Click the Settings button at the top right of the GUI component. Under these GUI Settings, change:

  • Web Interface HTTP Port to port 81
  • Web Interface HTTPS Port to port 444.

Click Save to save your changes. The WebUI will now prompt you to restart the web server service, after which you will be automatically redirected to your dashboard through one of the new ports. If you are not prompted to restart the web server service, you may restart the machine and manually navigate to the WebUI address followed by one of the new ports eg. truenas.local:81.


These are the recommended ports for this procedure. Using different ports may require some changes to your configuration that are not covered in this tutorial.


Do not skip this step. Neglecting to change the default ports active may cause your WebUI to become inaccessible after the following step. Ensure you are accessing your WebUI from the new ports before proceeding.

Installing the Traefik Scale App


Traefik is part of the enterprise train, so make sure you have it enabled as specified in the guide.

In the TrueNAS Menu, navigate to Apps > Available Applications. Use the search bar to search for or manually find the Traefik app in the list of apps, and click Install

The setup of Traefik is relatively straight-forward. Most of the settings remain unchanged from default, except for these two:

  • Application Name: Enter a name for your app. You may use simply traefik for this field.
  • At the bottom, check the warning checkbox.

Continue to section 12, and select Next. Traefik will now be installed. After installation you can access the Traefik dashboard using your host IP address followed by :9000, or by simply clicking "Web Portal" on the application's entry under Apps > Installed Applications.
