       -p 4243:4243 \
       -p 4280:4280 \
       -v "/path/to/your/crashplan/config":"/config":rw \
       -v "/path/to/your/manifest/dir":"/backup":rw \

###Some supported variables:

####Variable TZ:

This will set the correct timezone. Set yours to avoid time related issues.

-e TZ="America/Sao_Paulo"

####Variable HARDENED:

This will disable MPROTECT for grsec on Java executable (for hardened kernels).


####Variable VNC_PASSWD:

This will enable password protection for your webui interface.

-e VNC_PASSWD="your_password"


This container ports can be changed, in bridge network mode, changing the "-p" switch from the run command, or, in host mode, using variables started by "TCPPORT" prefix.

####Port 4242 (TCP_PORT_4242):

This port is used by CrashPlan for computer-to-computer backups.

-p 4242:4242 or -e TCP_PORT_4242=4242

####Port 4243 (TCP_PORT_4243):

This port is used by CrashPlan app to connect to CrashPlan service.

-p 4243:4243 or -e TCP_PORT_4243=4243

####Port 4280 (TCP_PORT_4280):

This port exposes a noVNC instance with the CrashPlan Desktop App.

-p 4280:4280 or -e TCP_PORT_4280=4280

Then navigate to http://yourip:4280/vnc.html?autoconnect=true&host= to access the graphic user interface.

This container will automatically update to Crashplan Small Business, when you switch your account. It is Crashplan whom pushes the update, you'll have nothing to do.

Will you look to build a Crashplan Pro (Small Business) with noVNC given their announcement of terminating the home plan?

Crashplan doesnt backup all the files, depending on the mapped volume. Any idea ?

Would be really nice if you could expose Java's -Xmx flags through variables - large backup sets consume way more than 1GB. For now, editing /config/bin/run.conf to change them works.

Sorry, correction: using VNC_PASSWORD has the same effect as not setting VNC_PASSWD; any password (or none at all) works.

How are you people making password authentication work?

Even though I see in the source on github you're looking for VNC_PASSWD, I cannot login when I set that environment variable. I can access the webUI with no password.

I saw on another crashplan docker container a reference for VNC_PASSWORD so I tried it on a whim and that variable actually works and I can login with that password.

Very nice, thanks.

The web vnc interface did not work for me though, so I had to export the main vnc port. I also added my /home/username/ path so that it matched my old backup when I adopted it.

So I just added this

-p 4239:4239 \
-v "/home/username/":"/home/username":rw \

Thanks again.

This is pretty awesome the way you set it up! Was able to replace my crashplan instance on my home server with this docker vm in less than 5 minutes, adopting my existing backup to crashplan cloud. The noVNC trick is golden here!

@psnowden Same exact thing happening to me.

I have checked the docker logs and there are some warnings and an error:

I'm only seeing a blank black screen when I try to view the WebUI. I've restarted the docker several times and even restarted unRAID to no avail. Any suggestions?
