The LinuxServer.io team brings you another container release featuring easy user mapping and community support. Find us for support at:
- IRC on freenode at
- Podcast covers everything to do with getting the most from your Linux Server plus a focus on all things Docker and containerisation!
Plexpy Is a Python-based Plex Usage tracker, that is currently in active development.
docker create \ --name=plexpy \ -v <path to data>:/config \ -v <path to plexlogs>:/logs:ro \ -e PGID=<gid> -e PUID=<uid> \ -e TZ=<timezone> \ -p 8181:8181 \ linuxserver/plexpy
The parameters are split into two halves, separated by a colon, the left hand side representing the host and the right the container side.
For example with a port -p external:internal - what this shows is the port mapping from internal to external of the container.
So -p 8080:80 would expose port 80 from inside the container to be accessible from the host's IP on port 8080
http://192.168.x.x:8080 would show you what's running INSIDE the container on port 80.
-p 8181- Port for webui
-v /configContaines plexpy config and database
-v /logsMap this to PLex Media servers log directory - bonus points for mapping RO
-e PGIDfor GroupID - see below for explanation
-e PUIDfor UserID - see below for explanation
-e TZfor setting timezone information, eg Europe/London
It is based on alpine linux with s6 overlay, for shell access whilst the container is running do
docker exec -it plexpy /bin/bash.
User / Group Identifiers
Sometimes when using data volumes (
-v flags) permissions issues can arise between the host OS and the container. We avoid this issue by allowing you to specify the user
PUID and group
PGID. Ensure the data volume directory on the host is owned by the same user you specify and it will "just work" ™.
In this instance
PGID=1001. To find yours use
id user as below:
$ id <dockeruser> uid=1001(dockeruser) gid=1001(dockergroup) groups=1001(dockergroup)
Setting up the application
Access the webui at
<your-ip>:8181, for more information check out Plexpy.
- To monitor the logs of the container in realtime
docker logs -f plexpy.
