A TT-RSS 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!


Tiny Tiny RSS is an open source web-based news feed (RSS/Atom) reader and aggregator, designed to allow you to read news from any location, while feeling as close to a real desktop application as possible.


docker create \
--name=tt-rss \
-v /etc/localtime:/etc/localtime:ro \
-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 - webui port see note below
  • -v /etc/localtime for timesync - optional omit if using TZ variable
  • -v /config - where tt-rss should store it's config files
  • -e PGID for GroupID - see below for explanation
  • -e PUID for UserID - see below for explanation
  • -e TZ for setting 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 tt-rss /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

You must create a user and database for tt-rss to use in a mysql/mariadb or postgresql server. In the setup page for database, use the ip address rather than hostname...

A basic nginx configuration file can be found in /config/nginx/site-confs , edit the file to enable ssl (port 443 by default), set servername etc.. Self-signed keys are generated the first time you run the container and can be found in /config/keys , if needed, you can replace them with your own.

The site files are in /config/www/tt-rss , you can find config files and themes folder there. Email and other settings are in the config.php file.


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

  • container version number

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

  • image version number

docker inspect -f '{{ index .Config.Labels "build_version" }}' linuxserver/tt-rss
