A Muximux 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!


This is a lightweight portal to view & manage your HTPC apps without having to run anything more than a PHP enabled webserver. With Muximux you don't need to keep multiple tabs open, or bookmark the URL to all of your apps. Muximux.


docker create \
  --name=muximux \
  -v <path to data>:/config \
  -e PGID=<gid> -e PUID=<uid>  \
  -e TZ=<timezone> -p 80:80 \


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 80 - the port(s)
  • -v /config - Where muximux should store its files
  • -e PGID for GroupID - see below for explanation
  • -e PUID for UserID - see below for explanation
  • -e TZ for timezone setting, eg Europe/London

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

Find the web interface at <your-ip>:80 , set apps you wish to use with muximux via the webui.
