Hey, having an issue with the Node-Red:



Looks like the newest version of Node-Red needs node.js > V8

I just checked and it seems like this docker is packed with v6.14.4

see here: https://nodered.org/docs/platforms/docker


Edit the template and set Repository to        nodered/node-red-docker:v8


it was mentioned here in the github link you sent: https://github.com/AYapejian/node-red-contrib-home-assistant/issues/52#issuecomment-385034497

Thanks Spants - I'm kind of a newbie when it comes to Docker.  All I do is click install on the community apps - haven't really dug much deeper than that.  Is there any info you could provide on editing the template itself for use with unRaid?


I'd also love to build a docker version of Hass.IO for unraid.  I'm currently doing a very stupid work-around of running it on a linux VM on my unraid server.

I use a USB adapter passed through to your node-red docker. The ttyUSB1 device is owned by root and node-red does not have access to it.

I can chown ttyUSB1 to node-red user, then it works. But this obvisously does not survive a reboot.

Can this be changed?



I used to do the same - and had a similar problem. Does this solve it for you too?





( add this to the extra parameters in template:       --device=/dev/ttyUSB1 --user=root     ) or other user.....

Is there anyway to set the retain flag to true in this docker?

Do you mean persistance?


Take a look in the config file and edit the following to suit:

persistence false
persistence_file mosquitto.db
persistence_location /config/data/

influxDB is separate Docker, i was assuming that InfluxDB could grow bit higher, but if the "Container Size" option is valid then NodeRed is the highest from all.

Even it might grown due to some previous test in NodeRed, but no clue how to clean it up - wipe whole docker and install again?


maybe you have your data volume set up wrong?


copy your flows out and save in a text file, delete/update container (check directories) and reinstall flows if needed...

i left it default, cos i didnt thought it can grow that much :) i was more worried about InfluxDB.

So u think backup flows, wipe NodeRed reinstall (with some other data path) and put flows back?



I just checked now /appdata folder and "nodered" is not even there, so is only inside IMG

To update to v1.0 that came out today: 


- Edit your docker template's repository field from `nodered/node-red-docker` to just `nodered/node-red`

- I needed to `chown -R 1000 /path/to/appdir` to update it to the new uid used by the container 

Thanks for posting - was just about to!

Will this prevent you from modifying the files outside of the container?
