Full Description

Pull from docker hub

    docker pull godmodelabs/unifi-controller

Run the container: launching the unifi controller daemon

    docker run -d \
            --net=host \
            -v /var/local/unifi/data:/usr/lib/unifi/data \
            --name unifi godmodelabs/unifi-controller

Ports

To communicate with the unifi controller docker exposes various ports:

  • 8080: non tls web ui
  • 8443: tls web ui
  • 8880: guest login ui

Exporting the mongodb running on port 27117 is not necessary and just creates an additional attack vector.

Optimize disk usage

Add "unifi.db.extraargs=--smallfiles" to /usr/lib/unifi/data/system.properties

docker exec -ti unifi 
$ echo "unifi.db.extraargs=--smallfiles" >>/usr/lib/unifi/data/system.properties
