How to Point Anki for Mac at Self-hosted sync server?

Noob question here.

I’ve set up the sync server using docker.

On the Mac, I’ve installed Anki for Mac.

Where do I go to point Anki for Mac to my sync server? If I click on Sync, it shows me the option to log into AnkiWeb. Do I need an AnkiWeb account even if I have self-hosting?


this is not officially supported so you’ll only get an answer from a user.

As far as I see the various sync servers only work with older anki versions.

For these maybe the add-on SyncRedirector could work which seems to be made by the anki docker creator, see ?

I haven’t used or tried this.
