Overseerr is currently in BETA. If you would like to help test the bleeding edge, please use the image
After running Overseerr for the first time, configure it by visiting the web UI at
http://[address]:5055and completing the setup steps.
Be sure to replace
/path/to/appdata/configin the below examples with a valid host directory path. If this volume mount is not configured correctly, your Overseerr settings/data will not be persisted when the container is recreated (e.g., when updating the image or rebooting your machine).
docker run -d \
--name overseerr \
-e LOG_LEVEL=debug \
-e TZ=Asia/Tokyo \
-e PORT=5055 `#optional` \
-p 5055:5055 \
-v /path/to/appdata/config:/app/config \
--restart unless-stopped \
To run the container as a specific user/group, you may optionally add
--user=[ user | user:group | uid | uid:gid | user:gid | uid:group ]to the above command.
Stop and remove the existing container:
docker stop overseerr && docker rm overseerr
Pull the latest image:
docker pull sctx/overseerr
Finally, run the container with the same parameters originally used to create the container:
docker run -d ...
overseerrservice in your
- PORT=5055 #optional
Then, start all services defined in the Compose file:
docker-compose up -d
Pull the latest image:
docker-compose pull overseerr
Then, restart all services defined in the Compose file:
docker-compose up -d
- 1.Ensure you have the Community Applications plugin installed.
- 2.Inside the Community Applications app store, search for Overseerr.
- 3.Click the Install Button.
- 4.On the following Add Container screen, make changes to the Host Port and Host Path 1(Appdata) as needed.
- 5.Click apply and access "Overseerr" at your
<ServerIP:HostPort>in a web browser.
Please refer to the Docker Desktop for Windows user manual for details on how to install Docker on Windows. There is no need to install a Linux distro if using named volumes like in the example below.
WSL2 will need to be installed to prevent DB corruption! Please see the Docker Desktop WSL 2 backend documentation for instructions on how to enable WSL2. The commands below will only work with WSL2 installed!
First, create a volume to store the configuration data for Overseerr using using either the Docker CLI:
docker volume create overseerr-data
or the Docker Desktop app:
- 1.Open the Docker Desktop app
- 2.Head to the Volumes tab
- 3.Click on the "New Volume" button near the top right
- 4.Enter a name for the volume (example:
overseerr-data) and hit "Create"
Then, create and start the Overseerr container:
docker run -d --name overseerr -e LOG_LEVEL=debug -e TZ=Asia/Tokyo -p 5055:5055 -v "overseerr-data:/app/config" --restart unless-stopped sctx/overseerr:latest
To access the files inside the volume created above, navigate to
\\wsl$\docker-desktop-data\version-pack-data\community\docker\volumes\overseerr-data\_datausing File Explorer.
Docker on Windows works differently than it does on Linux; it runs Docker inside of a stripped-down Linux VM. Volume mounts are exposed to Docker inside this VM via SMB mounts. While this is fine for media, it is unacceptable for the
/app/configdirectory because SMB does not support file locking. This will eventually corrupt your database, which can lead to slow behavior and crashes.
If you must run Docker on Windows, you should put the
/app/configdirectory mount inside the VM and not on the Windows host. (This also applies to other containers with SQLite databases.)
Named volumes, like in the example commands above, are automatically mounted inside the VM. Therefore the warning on the setup about the
/app/configfolder being incorrectly mounted page should be ignored.
sudo snap install overseerr
To install the development build, add the
--edgeargument to the above command (i.e.,
sudo snap install overseerr --edge). However, note that this version can break any moment. Be prepared to troubleshoot any issues that arise!
Snap will keep Overseerr up-to-date automatically. You can force a refresh by using the following command.
sudo snap refresh
Efforts will be made to keep up-to-date with the latest releases; however, this cannot be guaranteed.
To enable: To enable using
eselect repository, run:
eselect repository enable overseerr-overlay
To install: Once complete, you can just run:
To install the development build: A live ebuild (
=www-apps/overseerr-9999) is also available. To use this, you will need to modify accept_keywords for this package:
emerge --autounmask --autounmask-write "=www-apps/overseerr-9999"
Once installed, you will not be notified of updates, so you can update with:
This version can break any moment. Be prepared to troubleshoot any issues that arise!
To install, run the following:
box install overseerr
To upgrade, run the following:
box upgrade overseerr
