docker create --privileged \
  --name=Phlex \
  --net=host \
  -v <path to data>:/config \
  -e PGID=<gid> -e PUID=<uid>  \
  -e TZ=<timezone> \


By default, Phlex is set to listen on ports 5666 and 5667 - these can be modified by editing the file /config/

`The parameters are split into two halves, separated by a colon, the left hand side representing the host and the right the container side.

  • -v /config - Where muximux should store its files
  • -e PGID for GroupID (optional) - see below for explanation
  • -e PUID for UserID (optional) - see below for explanation
  • -e TZ for timezone setting (optional), 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>:5666, set apps you wish to use with Phlex via the webui.


  • Shell access whilst the container is running: docker exec -it Phlex /bin/bash
  • To monitor the logs of the container in realtime: docker logs -f phlex

  • container version number

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