  1. If I remove the mappings it works..... 😞
  2. Hi guys, sorry to take so long to come back and thanks for the advice. SO I edited the docker container and the resulting command run looked like this "root@localhost:# /usr/local/emhttp/plugins/dynamix.docker.manager/scripts/docker run -d --name='nxfilter' --net='bond0' --ip='' --privileged=true -e TZ="Europe/London" -e HOST_OS="Unraid" -v '/mnt/cache/appdata/nxfilter/conf/':'/nxfilter/conf':'rw' -v '/mnt/cache/appdata/nxfilter/log':'/nxfilter/log':'rw' -v '/mnt/cache/appdata/nxfilter/db/':'/nxfilter/db':'rw' 'packetworks/nxfilter-base:latest' e1a26f37b99126b3cdaec315597a7096a3e59cf24fdbad48f1835ebd30055916" The appropraite folders get created in my app data but when the docker tries to start i know get "Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException at nxd.Main.<init>(Unknown Source) at nxd.Main.main(Unknown Source) Exception in thread "Thread-0" java.lang.NullPointerException at nxd.o.run(Unknown Source)" I would be incredibly grateful for any advice please! Thanks Stuart
  3. Hi guys, I have searched and googled but just cant get my head around how to install nxfilter. properly - https://hub.docker.com/r/packetworks/nxfilter-base I have it installed and working but for the life of me I just cant finger out how to get persistent storage working. I would be really grateful for any advice as I just cant seem to work it out! Thanks Stuart
  4. Thanks - mapped a folder put backup file in - consoled into docker - moved backup file to write place -restarted docker - Done! Need to work out a proper xml for it!
  5. To restore it I apparently need to stop the docker then copy over the config.h2.db file It isnt mapped yet I need to read up on how to move the folder out of the docker into the app data share- I have never installed a docker without using the APP function with ready made xmls before.
  6. To cut a long story short I did a dirty Docker install that didn't have its config directory on the appdata share. As a result I have updated the docker and lost all my config - I have a backup but need file access to be able to restore it. Can anyone explain how I can use WINSCP to browse to the container in the docker.img file and restore it. Its pretty urgent and I feel an idiot! Cheers Stuart
  7. So I am a little confused!! All my dockers place nice usually 🙂 but I can down today to see a high utilisation alert. A quick check shows that MQTT 20.1 MB 0 B 14.4 GB MQTT is the culprit with 14.4GB of log files!!! A quick hop into the docker settings and I set my log size to 100mb and rotation to on. But it doesnt seem to have done anything. AM I being slow? Cheers Stuart
  8. IF I try from command console I get $ apt-get install libavahi-compat-libdnssd-dev E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (13: Permission denied) E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), are you root? $ ^C $ I have installed the via manage pallet no problems but homekit doesn't find anything and when I try a bonjour browser on pc as well it also sees nothing ? Thanks for suggestions.
  9. Hi guys, I would love to be able to use this - https://flows.nodered.org/node/node-red-contrib-homekit-bridged so I can make my stuff availavlle to apple home. Docker installs ok but then home app on apple never finds it I am running the docker with :V8 at the end to get latest node js I wonder if the docker needs these added to it? Prerequisites These nodes are based on the extremely awesome HAP-NodeJS -Project which uses an implementation of mdns to provide Bonjour / Avahi capability. Please refer to the HAP-NodeJS Wiki and to mdns for install instructions, if you get stuck on the following. Install For Debian / Ubuntu you need to install the following in order to support Bonjour / Avahi sudo apt-get install libavahi-compat-libdnssd-dev Then run the following command in your Node-RED user directory - typically ~/.node-red npm install node-red-contrib-homekit-bridged Thanks for any advice Stuart
  10. SO Just in case any one else is looking ? I had to add the below to get it working, it wont work with anything but the root rather than location / hass or something which I woudl prefer but can live with this unless anyone has any suggestions map $http_upgrade $connection_upgrade { default upgrade; '' close; } location / { proxy_pass; proxy_set_header Host $host; proxy_redirect http:// https://; proxy_http_version 1.1; proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for; proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade; proxy_set_header Connection $connection_upgrade; }
  11. I tried many variations of home assistant docker, lets encrypt etc when googling but didn't actually search for NGINX - doh!!!! Thank you so much for the link cant believe it was documented on HASS pages - right off to play and thanks once more ?
  12. HI guys, Has anyone managed to get this working with the home assistant docker for the reverse proxy. I have tried the following location /ha { proxy_pass; proxy_set_header Host $host; proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade; proxy_set_header Connection "upgrade"; } but I just get anyone got any ideas? Thanks! 502 Bad Gateway nginx/1.12.2
  13. Thanks - in the end I ended up installing, AppDaemon - they I used the new console feature to install paho-mqtt then I just set the python script to run.
