Automatic Video Library Manager for TV Shows. It watches for new episodes of your favorite shows, and when they are posted it does its magic. Sickrage


docker create --name=sickrage \
-v <path to config>:/config \
-v <path to downloads>:/downloads \
-v <path to tv-shows>:/tv \
-e PGID=<gid> -e PUID=<uid>  \
-e TZ=<timezone> \
-p 8081:8081 \


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 8081 - the port(s)
  • -v /config - where sickrage should store config files.
  • -v /downloads - your downloads folder
  • -v /tv - your tv-shows folder
  • -e PGID for GroupID - see below for explanation
  • -e PUID for UserID - see below for explanation
  • -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 sickrage /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

Web interface is at <your ip>:8081 , set paths for downloads, tv-shows to match docker mappings via the webui.


  • To monitor the logs of the container in realtime docker logs -f sickrage.

  • container version number

docker inspect -f '{{ index .Config.Labels "build_version" }}' sickrage
