Is a script that aggregates all new TV and movie releases for the past x days then writes to your web directory and sends out an email.
docker create --name=plexemail -v /etc/localtime:/etc/localtime:ro -v <path to data>:/config -e PGID=<gid> -e PUID=<uid> -p 80:80 linuxserver/plexemail
-p 80- the port(s)
-v /etc/localtimefor timesync - optional
-e PGIDfor GroupID - see below for explanation
-e PUIDfor UserID - see below for explanation
It is based on phusion-baseimage with ssh removed, for shell access whilst the container is running do
docker exec -it plexemail /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
- Edit the config.conf in the /config folder.
- Update the /cron/crontab as necessary.
- See project GIT for more information on configuration: https://github.com/jakewaldron/PlexEmail
- Upgrade to the latest version simply
docker restart plexmail.
- To monitor the logs of the container in realtime
docker logs -f plexmail.
