Trouble Running Filezilla using Portainer

  • I got OMV 5 running on my raspberry pi and I'm trying to give access to my 2 uncles that want to trade music files with my father. After some searching I landed on using Filezilla and I have enabled SFTP . Being new to OMV I found myself using a video from TechnoDadLife on how to install and use Filezilla but I'm having trouble using portainer. The video uses Docker but a docker-gui plugin that seems to be unavailable for my current version of OMV. I read that Portainer essentially does the same thing that the docker-gui plugin does but I followed the video and documentation for using both Portainer and Filezilla and performed the Portainer equivalent to what I saw in the video, in addition to entering in the shell commands for Filezilla when the Portainer method does not work, but I had hit a wall. One of the steps has me open Filezilla using my ip address with a port number of my choosing or simply type in 0.0.0.0:portnumber or click the link that is under Published Ports in Portainer in the container list, however when I try either of these methods I'm brought to a page that says "the site can't be reached". I refresh the portainer page or reload the container list and the container has stopped running. Does anyone know where I went wrong or how to get Filezilla running on OMV 5?

  • EDIT: just noticed that the used image is for x86-64 and not for arm, so you need to check if there is an arm image for the RPi and adjust accordingly.


    I use this docker-compose file


    You can run it in portainer

    After the docker is up, you can reach filezilla from the browser

    ip.of.your.nas:5800

  • I was able to successfully install portainer, but I don't fully understand your instructions. Is there even an arm version for Filezilla? I can't find any. Or does portainer make jlesage/filzilla which is amd64 somehow work?

  • You cannot run docker images compiled for one architecture on another architecture. Portainer doesn't have anything to do with this.

    change aproach, use winscp instead, no need to use docker.
