It is based on phusion-baseimage with ssh removed, for shell access whilst the container is running do
docker exec -it LazyLibrarian /bin/bash.
User / Group Identifiers
TL;DR - The
PUID values set the user / group you'd like your container to 'run as' to the host OS. This can be a user you've created or even root (not recommended).
Part of what makes our containers work so well is by allowing you to specify your own
PGID. This avoids nasty permissions errors with relation to data volumes (
-v flags). When an application is installed on the host OS it is normally added to the common group called users, Docker apps due to the nature of the technology can't be added to this group. So we added this feature to let you easily choose when running your containers.
Setting up the application
Access WebUI at http://localhost:5299 and walk through the wizard.
- Upgrade to the latest version simply
docker restart LazyLibrarian.
- To monitor the logs of the container in realtime
docker logs -f LazyLibrarian.
