PSA: Changes are happening

From August 2018 onwards, Linuxserver are in the midst of switching to a new CI platform which will enable us to build and release multiple architectures under a single repo. To this end, existing images for arm64 and armhf builds are being deprecated. They are replaced by a manifest file in each container which automatically pulls the correct image for your architecture. You'll also be able to pull based on a specific architecture tag.

TLDR: Multi-arch support is changing from multiple repos to one repo per container image.


Heimdall is a way to organise all those links to your most used web sites and web applications in a simple way.
Simplicity is the key to Heimdall.
Why not use it as your browser start page? It even has the ability to include a search bar using either Google, Bing or DuckDuckGo.

Supported Architectures

Our images support multiple architectures such as x86-64, arm64 and armhf. We utilise the docker manifest for multi-platform awareness. More information is available from docker here.

The architectures supported by this image are:

Architecture Tag
x86-64 amd64-latest
arm64 arm64v8-latest
armhf arm32v6-latest


Here are some example snippets to help you get started creating a container.


docker create \
  --name=heimdall \
  -e PUID=1001 \
  -e PGID=1001 \
  -e TZ=Europe/London \
  -p 80:80 \
  -p 443:443 \
  -v </path/to/appdata/config>:/config \
  --restart unless-stopped \


Compatible with docker-compose v2 schemas.

version: "2"
    image: linuxserver/heimdall
    container_name: heimdall
      - PUID=1001
      - PGID=1001
      - TZ=Europe/London
      - </path/to/appdata/config>:/config
      - 80:80
      - 443:443
    mem_limit: 4096m
    restart: unless-stopped


Container images are configured using parameters passed at runtime (such as those above). These parameters are separated by a colon and indicate <external>:<internal> respectively. For example, -p 8080:80 would expose port 80 from inside the container to be accessible from the host's IP on port 8080 outside the container.

Parameter Function
-p 80 http gui
-p 443 https gui
-e PUID=1001 for UserID - see below for explanation
-e PGID=1001 for GroupID - see below for explanation
-e TZ=Europe/London Specify a timezone to use EG Europe/London
-v /config Contains all relevant configuration files.

User / Group Identifiers

When using 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 any volume directories on the host are owned by the same user you specify and any permissions issues will vanish like magic.

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

  $ id username
    uid=1001(dockeruser) gid=1001(dockergroup) groups=1001(dockergroup)


Application Setup

Access the web gui at http://SERVERIP:PORT

Adding password protection

This image now supports password protection through htpasswd. Run the following command on your host to generate the htpasswd file docker exec -it heimdall htpasswd -c /config/nginx/.htpasswd <username>. Replace <username> with a username of your choice and you will be asked to enter a password. New installs will automatically pick it up and implement password protected access. Existing users updating their image can delete their site config at /config/nginx/site-confs/default and restart the container after updating the image. A new site config with htpasswd support will be created in its place.

Support Info
