[HOWTO] install mldonkey on OMV5 using portainer WEBGUI

  • Some history:


    This is a new HOWTO evolved from my last howto install mldonkey for OMV4:


    Please read it for curiosity.




    Initial steps; You need to create/have a user/group to use in dockers (please do not use root).


    I create user : dockeruser with PUID=1001

    and a group called Dockergroup with PGID=1000

    then you need to open your portainer ( you need to install it previosly)

    Now is time to edit my mldonkey.compose file:


    You need to change PUID & PGID acording your previously created user & group.


    You need to change volumes acording your needs;


    my Full path is /srv/dev-disk-by-label-DATA/Varios/dockers/mldonkey that is when I want to store my mldonkey config files


    and define your completed folder to a shared folders that you can see by SAMBA in my case : /srv/dev-disk-by-label-DATA/Varios/Completed


    Note: /srv/dev-disk-by-label-DATA/Varios/ must exist, and Completed can be created by mldonkey docker

    Note2: /srv/dev-disk-by-label-DATA/Varios/dockers/ must exist, and "mldonkey"can be created by mldonkey docker


    then you need to copy your edited file to portainer like this:

    Please do not add TZ=Europe/Madrid this was my fault and mldonkey fails if you add it ( my mldonkey.compose file do not have it).


    24/04/2020 after more testing , if posible to add - TZ=Europe/Madrid # Your Time Zone Here



    and you are ready to deploy.

    push the lower button to deploy stack and finally you have a working mldonkey :

    After that my recomendation is to change default password for user "admin" in mldonkey WebGUI.




    Note 3 line

    Code
    - "192.168.1.104:4080:4080"

    192.168.1.04 is my NAS IP, use yours NAS IP, this have the advantage that you can push 4080 in the portainer webGUI and Open the url: http://192.168.1.104:4080 that is what you want.


    If you use 4080:4080 and do no put your NAS IP, when you push 4080 in the portainer WebGUI, the URL must be http://0.0.0.0:4080 that show nothing.
