Instructions to run:

docker run -d -h *your_host_name* -v /*your_config_location*:/config -v /*your_videos_location*:/data -p 32400:32400  plex

or for auto detection add --net="host". Though be aware this more insecure but should be fine on your personal servers.

docker run -d --net="host" -h *your_host_name* -v /*your_config_location*:/config -v /*your_videos_location*:/data -p 32400:32400  plex

The first time it runs, it will initialize the config directory and terminate.

You will need to modify the auto-generated config file to allow connections from your local IP range. This can be done by modifying the file:

your_config_location/Library/Application Support/Plex Media Server/Preferences.xml

and adding allowedNetworks="" as a parameter in the <Preferences ...> section. (Or what ever your local range is)

Start the docker instance again and it will stay as a daemon and listen on port 32400.

Browse to: http://*ipaddress*:32400/web to run through the setup wizard.

Docker Beta

If using the Docker Beta on OSX, try the following

docker run -d -h $(hostname) -v /*your_config_location*:/config -v /*your_videos_location*:/data -p 32400:32400 plex

and then in the local web browser go to localhost:32400/web to access the locally running container.
