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 to receive traffic on these host ports.

In the TrueNAS Menu, navigate to System Settings > 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.

Installing the Traefik SCALE App

In the TrueNAS Menu, navigate to Apps > Discover Apps. 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 Open on the application’s entry under Apps > Installed Applications.
