Short Description
A super small alpine based docker container that provides the Cherrymusic media server
Full Description

cherrymusic as a docker service


  • create the data-container:
docker create --name cherrymusic-data -v /home/cm/.config/cherrymusic -v /home/cm/.¬local/share/cherrymusic klingtdotnet/cherrymusic
  • run once to create the initial configuration
docker run --rm --volumes-from cherrymusic-data -it klingtdotnet/cherrymusic
  • edit the configuration
docker run --rm --volumes-from cherrymusic-data -it klingtdotnet/vim vim /home/cm/.¬config/cherrymusic/cherrymusic.conf
  • normal run with read-only mounted music volume (or as SystemD service)
docker run --rm --volumes-from cherrymusic-data --volume /path/to/local/music:/home/cm/basedir/:ro -it klingtdotnet/vim vim /home/cm/.¬config/cherrymusic/cherrymusic.conf

SystemD Service

  • copy the cherrymusic@.service file to /etc/systemd/system and run systemctl daemon-reload
  • edit the environment file cherrymusic and copy it to /etc/sysconfig
  • run the service with systemctl start cherrymusic@someuser or enable it (start automatically on boot) systemctl enable cherrymusic@someuser

nginx Reverse Proxy Example

  • to generate a self-signed certificate: openssl req -x509 -newkey rsa:4096 -keyout -out -days 360
erver {
    listen 80;
    listen [::]:80;
    server_name music.some.domain;
    return 301 https://music.some.domain$request_uri;

server {
    listen       443 ssl spdy;
    listen       [::]:443 ssl spdy;
    server_name  music.some.domain;

    ssl_certificate         /etc/nginx/certs/_.some.domain/_.some.domain.pem;
    ssl_certificate_key     /etc/nginx/certs/_.some.domain/_.some.domain.key;
    ssl_password_file       /etc/nginx/certs/_.some.domain/.pass;

    ssl_protocols TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2;

    location / {
        proxy_http_version 1.1;
        # Set proxy headers for the passthrough
        proxy_set_header Host $host;
        proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;

        # Let the Set-Cookie header through.
        proxy_pass_header Set-Cookie;
        proxy_pass  http://localhost:8765/;

SELinux Troublehshooting

  • certificate not readable by nginx, despite correct permmissions -> update SELinux context
restorecon -v -R /path/to/certs/
  • nginx returns 502 Bad Gateway -> add port to allowed http ports
semanage port -a -t http_port_t -p tcp 20800
# check
semanage port -l | grep 20800
  • note that semanage takes a lot of resources (I would like to know why), maybe you have to setup a swapfile for systems with less than 512MB of RAM. Otherwise it will stop with a KILLED message
