      You don't have to do anything with the ports on your router (unless you want to access from outside). Don't do anything on the router now.

      If you created the user "specifically for docker" in the GUI of OMV he already member of the users group. That should be enough. We will confirm later.

I need this step to find the UID and GID. How exactly do you "SSH in"
      Did you use the user "root"? That should work for SSH. Please write if you used root and it did not work.

    • Re:3 I tried root - no access.

      i removed shellinabox - been told it is not working and about to become obsolete.

      The I tried to install PuTTy on my pc. Logged in from the command prompt and Yes - I have access as root user - all other users "access denied".

      So one step forward at least??

      Glad you are around - really appreciate your support.

      Yes. Now you have access using ssh. Other users can only use ssh, if they are in the ssh group.

      In the PuTTy session you can find out the IDs of the docker user. Just type
      id <user> replace <user> by the name of the user you specifically created for docker

    • BTW you can copy the text from Putty. For this you have to select the text with the cursor. You don't have to press a button to copy.
      When you have moved with the cursor in another application (this forum for example) you can press Ctrl-V and the text is being inserted.

    • I now have the UID and GID for the <dockerperson> id I created.

      I thought I had created a group for SSH and added the other users - obviously another thing I got wrong!

      I'll now go back to the thread you gave earlier and try another step or two - no doubt other obstacles will present themselves but I'll keep plodding on.

      How do I give a 'Like' for your postings?

      I'll be probably around for the next hours. Will help if I can.

    • One topic we need to figure out is where to put docker and the database for plex. How big is your drive you are using for OMV. Not the data drive, but the drive with operating system.

      If you don't know, do this command in putty and copy the result here in the forum
      df -h this will show how much space is used and how much space is available on each file system

      Trust this is correct - I'm using an SSD drive for the OS - If memory serves me well - it was a 240Gb SSD.

      Already got a problem with the next step in the thread- cd home says no such directory exists?

      root@openmediavault:~# cd home
      -bash: cd: home: No such file or directory

      This is your drive with the operating system. Plenty of space. So we can put docker here.

      No, if you only want to use Plex you just need this one.

    • Maybe you can make screenshots of the settings of the container.

      To do so
      • highlight the container
      • click "Modify"
      • a warning comes up, click "ok"
      • make the screenshots
      • click "cancel"
      You can also have a look at the log file of the container
      • highlight the container
      • click "Logs"

    • Apologies - slow in getting back to you - family commitments!

      Ran Plex and seems to be working.

      When I said containers what I should have said is I haven't as yet set up all of the folders for Photos / Videos etc etc I need to get back into the same place as that where I listed the PUID, GID, etc and add them there.

      Thanks to you I've got something working - albeit I don't really understand what or how.

      Not sure about security - get a message saying not a secure connection?

      In any event have to pack it in for tonight to keep the peace.

      Once again my gratitude for your skill and support

      best
