Getting the docker image
Build from docker file
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:timhaak/docker-plex.git cd docker-plex docker build -t timhaak/plex .
You can also obtain it via:
docker pull timhaak/plex
Running the docker image
Instructions to run:
docker rm -f plex docker run --restart=always -d --name plex -h *your_host_name* -v /*your_config_location*:/config -v /*your_videos_location*:/data -p 32400:32400 timhaak/plex
When the container starts, it will initialize the config directory and the configuration is populated through environment variables that can be set using the command line or an envfile.
http://*ipaddress*:32400/web to run through the setup wizard.
By default, unauthenticated web access will only be available from the host machine and so to configure authentication for external access you will need a web browser on your host machine. If this is unavailable or you would like to have unauthenticated access from your LAN, then you can set the
PLEX_ALLOWED_NETWORKS environment variable to the subnet of your LAN either temporarily for configuration or permenantly for unauthenticated LAN access.
Avahi Auto Detection
For auto detection to work add --net="host". Though be aware this more insecure and not best practice with docker images. The only reason for doing it is to allow Avahi to work (as it uses broadcasts that will not cross network boundries).
See the Docker Networking Article for details on how docker networks a container.
docker rm -f plex docker run --restart=always -d --name plex --net="host" -h *your_host_name* -v /*your_config_location*:/config -v /*your_videos_location*:/data timhaak/plex

To use an option, set it as a Docker environment variable through the command line:
docker run -e RUN_AS_ROOT=TRUE ... timhaak/plex
or add it to an envfile that can be included through the command line:
docker run --envfile=*filename* ... timhaak/plex
