Portainer/Docker

    • OMV 5.x (beta)
    • Portainer/Docker

      I'm testing OMV5 on proxmox and I installed Portainer/Docker. On Omb4 Docker after a long time I was able to learn how to use Docker but now, I'm ashamed to say, with Portainer I don't know how to install and modify images. Can you recommend me a site or Youtube video where you can learn from, especially Plex and Transmition.

      Thanks

      No need to speak German, just look at the pictures how to connect your folders.

      I disagree. It is different and has more features (that doesn't mean you have to use them). I started porting the plugin to OMV 5.x but no one wants to maintain or add features. So, if it was available on OMV 5.x, very few would switch to portainer which needs to be the long term goal.

      /sharedfolders/media.
      If you specify a Volume, Portainer will show a drop-down list of volumes that have hashes for their names. These are the ones in your /var/lib/docker/volumes/ and you already know about this.

      If you specify a Bind, Portainer will display a Host path box. You will have to know the fully qualified path and type it in by hand (or paste it in from the clipboard if you can get it into the clipboard). No selection drop-down list be be offered.

      If you create a new shared folder for each container, it is pretty easy - /sharedfolders/FOLDER_NAME. Or if you reuse a sharedfolder and create a sub-directory like TDL does in his videos, you just need to type /sharedfolders/FOLDER_NAME/NEW_SUB_DIR. But like you said, volumes are the better way to go.

      Thank you very much for the instructions, I agree perfectly with you, but as you know the news will put you off at the beginning, but then you will learn all

      understood ... thanks a lot
    • A week ago when I first saw Portainer and couldn’t find Docker, I was just like you, but after messing with it a bit I think it will be better in the long run. In a docker container, if you missed a leading slash in your config path or something similar, you could save the container - it just wouldn’t run. You would just have to delete it and start over. In Portainer if you attempt to “deploy” you are prevented and given a warning notice. When you correct the missing slash it will go ahead and save. I’m sure it won’t protect you from every mistake, but I was impressed.

      Watch the @TechnoDadLife video listed above and make a crib sheet matching each Docker section with its corresponding Portainer tab and ignore anything that doesn’t have a corresponding Docker section. Start off by turning off the first three radio buttons. I’m not looking at Portainer right now so I can’t be more specific. If you have questions don’t hesitate to post.

    • in my case i have no problems with the containers there i use in omv4, but... it is difficould for me to manage nginx sides with a letsencrypt cert. ;(

      After an afternoon of rehearsals, I now understand that Portainer is definitely better and above all no time is wasted

      Well now, I haven’t tried the remote side to Nextcloud yet. I know it was a bear in omv4. I’m waiting for omv5 to come out of beta and my current cert to expire before trying that. In the past few days I have been able to install containers for Plex, Mariadb, Nextcloud, and Heimdall without any trouble.
