Short Description
Docker containers for running a seedbox/media server
Full Description


A collection of Dockerfiles and a docker-compose configuration to set up a
seedbox and personal media server.

Accessing a Service's Web Interface

Go to x.hostname where x is the service you want to access.
Included services are:

  • rtorrent
  • sonarr
  • jackett (included in the sonarr image)
  • syncthing
  • plex

The front-end reverse proxy routes based on the lowest level subdomain (e.g. would route to rtorrent). Since this is how the router
works, it is recommended for you to get a top level domain. If you do not have
one, you can edit your domains locally by changing your hosts file or use a
browser plugin that changes the host header.

Note: Plex is also available directly through the 32400 port without going
through the reverse proxy. You will have to sign in with your account
if you do this.



$ docker-compose pull
$ docker-compose up -d

docker-compose should manage all the volumes and network setup for you. If it
does not, verify that your docker and docker-compose version is updated.

Make sure you install the dependencies and finish configuration before doing


Copy the config.default file to config and change the variables as desired.
The variables are all self-explanatory.

If you want to enable SSL, you would need to have your certificate and key be
at /config/frontend/ssl.crt and /config/frontend/ssl.key respectively. The
frontend image includes a command ssl-gen to automatically create self signed
certificates for you.


If you own PlexPass, you can get the docker image to auto-update to the latest
PlexPass version when the container starts up. This is arguably bad docker
practice since containers are supposed to be immutable, but in this case, I
think the convenience outweighs that. All you have to do is set the
PLEX_EMAIL and PLEX_PASSWORD variables in the config file.

Where is my data?

All data are saved in the docker volumes seedbox_config or
You can also replace these docker volumes with static path if you want to
handle manually where files are stored on your server. You can do this by
editing the volumes settings in the docker-compose.yml file.


The OpenVPN container generates a single client key/cert pair by default.
Run the command below to get your OpenVPN config file:

$ docker-compose exec openvpn export-client client >> client.ovpn

Edit the client.ovpn and replace the line remote MYSERVER_HOST 1194 with
the hostname or IP address of your server.

You can also create more certs by by docker exec-ing into the container and
using easy-rsa.
