A Duplicati container, brought to you by
Full Description

The team brings you another container release featuring easy user mapping and community support. Find us for support at:

  • IRC on freenode at
  • Podcast covers everything to do with getting the most from your Linux Server plus a focus on all things Docker and containerisation!


Duplicati works with standard protocols like FTP, SSH, WebDAV as well as popular services like Microsoft OneDrive, Amazon Cloud Drive & S3, Google Drive,, Mega, hubiC and many others.


docker create \
  --name=duplicati \
  -v <path to data>:/config \
  -v <path to data>:/backups \
  -v <path to data>:/source \
  -e PGID=<gid> -e PUID=<uid>  \
  -p 8200:8200 \


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.

  • -p 8200 - the port(s)
  • -v /config - path for duplicati config files
  • -v /backups - path to store local backups
  • -v /source - path to source for files to backup
  • -e PGID for GroupID - see below for explanation
  • -e PUID for UserID - see below for explanation

It is based on ubuntu xenial with s6 overlay, for shell access whilst the container is running do docker exec -it duplicati /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 webui is at <your ip>:8200 , create backup jobs etc via the webui, for local backups select /backups as the destination. For more information see Duplicati.


  • Shell access whilst the container is running: docker exec -it duplicati /bin/bash
