deluge Deluge is a lightweight, Free Software, cross-platform BitTorrent client.

  • Full Encryption
  • WebUI
  • Plugin System
  • Much more...


docker create \
  --name deluge \
  --net=host \
  -e PUID=<UID> -e PGID=<GID> \
  -e TZ=<timezone> \
  -e UMASK_SET=<022> \
  -v </path/to/your/downloads>:/downloads \
  -v </path/to/deluge/config>:/config \


The parameters are split into two halves, separated by a colon, the left hand side representing the host and the right the container side. For example with a port -p external:internal - what this shows is the port mapping from internal to external of the container. So -p 8080:80 would expose port 80 from inside the container to be accessible from the host's IP on port 8080 http://192.168.x.x:8080 would show you what's running INSIDE the container on port 80.

  • --net=host - Shares host networking with container, required.
  • -v /config - deluge configs
  • -v /downloads - torrent download directory
  • -e PGID for GroupID - see below for explanation
  • -e PUID for UserID - see below for explanation
  • -e UMASK_SET for umask setting of deluge, optional , default if left unset is 022.
  • -e TZ for timezone information, eg Europe/London

It is based on alpine linux with s6 overlay, for shell access whilst the container is running do docker exec -it deluge /bin/bash.

User / Group Identifiers

Sometimes when using data volumes (-v flags) permissions issues can arise between the host OS and the container. We avoid this issue by allowing you to specify the user PUID and group PGID. Ensure the data volume directory on the host is owned by the same user you specify and it will "just work" ™.

In this instance PUID=1001 and PGID=1001. To find yours use id user as below:

  $ id <dockeruser>
    uid=1001(dockeruser) gid=1001(dockergroup) groups=1001(dockergroup)

Setting up the application

The admin interface is available at http://<ip>:8112 with a default user/password of admin/deluge.

To change the password (recommended) log in to the web interface and go to Preferences->Interface->Password.

Change the downloads location in the webui in Preferences->Downloads and use /downloads for completed downloads.


  • Monitor the logs of the container in realtime docker logs -f deluge.
