xxredxpandaxx Posted January 17, 2015 Share Posted January 17, 2015 This guide is a bit outdated now. Please have a look at Spaceinvader one's video about docker. It is current and quite detailed. P.S. He is spaceinvaderone here on the UnRAID forums. Video guides are at the bottom of this post. Well I just figured out how to set up docker and I am completely new to docker so I decided to make a quick guide to help other people who are new. p.s. this is for unraid 6.0 beta 10 and up i think, correct me if I am wrong but i think that is when the UI changed to make docker easier. Step 1 go to the docker tab in the unraid gui. should look like this. Step 2 where it says Docker image you want to put the path where you want to store your docker image. I think most people put it on there cache drive, but you don't have to. I put mine on a separate user share that I use for only plugins and docker. as of beta 14 you can no longer have your docker image in a user share, so when you make a share make it cache only and the path will be /mnt/cache/SHARENAME/docker/docker So if you wanted it on a user share that you made the path would be /mnt/user/SHARENAME/docker/docker Just replace "SHARENAME" with what ever your share is called. here is a picture to show what I am talking about. Step 3 Set the size image you want, 10Gb-15Gb should be big enough for what ever you need it for. Here is the file it creates after you press start. Step 4 press the start button Step 5 https://github.com/gfjardim/docker-containers/tree/templates ^ add this link to the repositories area, and click save. Look at the very first picture on this thread. Step 6 Well now you have docker set up and its time to add a "container" or application or what ever you want to call it. I will start with plex media server as quite a few people use it I assume Click the big green add button you should see a window that pops up that looks like this. press select a template and scroll down to plex media server and select it. Step 7 under the path section which looks like this. click in the part where it says /mnt/user/appdata/plexmediaserver and a folder navigator will open up under it. You want to navigate to the docker folder you made earlier. Also you can just type in the path if you want, it should be /mnt/user/YOURSHARENAME/docker/apps/plexmediaserver/ The "/apps/plexmediaserver/" part will add the folder, apps in the docker folder and a plexmediaserver folder inside apps. so click "user" then what ever you named your share, mine is "Automation" then click on the "docker" folder. After that you want to type in /apps/plexmediaserver/ so basically after all this it should look like this. Step 8 So what this step does is give the plexmediaserver container access to your media. you want it to type /tv in the first box and then navigate to the folder where your tv shows are located, in my case that is in the share "Media" then in the folder "TV" then click Add Path. You want to do the same thing for movies. so it would be /movies in the box on the left and the path to your movies in the right box If you want to add music just do the same thing as above. Step 9 This step is easy, just click apply at the bottom and let everything install. Now after it says it completed just close the window and it should look like this, minus all the other apps I have installed. I can't remember if plex starts right away or not but if the writing under the plex symbol is green then it is running, if its red then click on it and press start. Next click on the plex symbol and click webUI (it may take a few seconds for plex to start so if nothing comes up wait a couple seconds and refresh the page) and it will bring you to the plex web interface and thats it, you have set up docker and installed plex. when adding tv shows or movies to your plex server, when you click add folder, just scroll down and you should see tv just click that and you should see all of your shows. If this is still confusing I can make a video on how to do it if anyone wants me to. Hope this helps some people. Video guides OwnCloud - http://tinyurl.com/no9hekb Quote Link to comment
