Full Description


docker create \
  --name=phlex \
  --net=host \
  -v <path to data>:/config \
  -e PGID=<gid> -e PUID=<uid>  \
  -e TZ=<timezone> \
  -p 5666:5666 -p 5667:5667 \
  -e HTTPPORT=5666 \
  -e HTTPSPORT=5667 \
  -e FASTCGIPORT=9000 \
  -e BRANCH=master \
  --privileged \


By default, Phlex is set to listen on ports 5666 and 5667 - these can be modified by editing the file /config/

The parameters are split into two halves, separated by a colon, the left hand side representing the host and the right the container side.

  • -v /config - Where phlex should store its files
  • -e HTTPPORT (optional) Port to serve http web traffic from. (default is 5666)
  • -e HTTPSPORT (optional) Port to serve https traffic from. (default is 5667)
  • -e FASTCGIPORT (optional) Port to use for cast traffic (default is 9000)
  • -e BRANCH (optional) Set to 'beta' to play with the new hotness!
  • -e TZ for timezone setting (optional), eg Europe/London

It is based on alpine linux with s6 overlay, for shell access whilst the container is running do docker exec -it phlex /bin/bash.

Setting up the application

Find the web interface at <your-ip>:5666, set apps you wish to use with Phlex via the webui.


  • Shell access whilst the container is running: docker exec -it Phlex /bin/bash
  • To monitor the logs of the container in realtime: docker logs -f Phlex
