FreshRSS is a free, self-hostable aggregator for rss feeds
docker create \ --name=freshrss \ -v <path to data>:/config \ -e PGID=<gid> -e PUID=<uid> \ -p 80:80 \ linuxserver/freshrss
-p 80- the port(s)
-v /config- local storage for freshrss site files
-e PGIDfor GroupID - see below for explanation
-e PUIDfor UserID - see below for explanation
It is based on phusion-baseimage with ssh removed, for shell access whilst the container is running do
docker exec -it freshrss /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" â¢.
In this instance
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
Create a user and database in your mysql/mariadb server (not root) and then follow the setup wizard in the webui. Use the IP address for "host" of your database server.
- Upgrade to the latest version simply
docker restart freshrss.
- To monitor the logs of the container in realtime
docker logs -f freshrss.
