Docker guide

You can quickly get a server running using Docker. You need to have docker and docker-compose installed.



PeerTube does not support webserver host change. Keep in mind your domain name is definitive after your first PeerTube start.

PeerTube needs a PostgreSQL and a Redis instance to work correctly. If you want to quickly set up a full environment, either for trying the service or in production, you can use a docker-compose setup.

$ cd /your/peertube/directory
$ mkdir ./docker-volume && mkdir ./docker-volume/traefik
$ curl "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/chocobozzz/PeerTube/master/support/docker/production/config/traefik.toml" > ./docker-volume/traefik/traefik.toml
$ touch ./docker-volume/traefik/acme.json && chmod 600 ./docker-volume/traefik/acme.json
$ curl -s "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/chocobozzz/PeerTube/master/support/docker/production/docker-compose.yml" -o docker-compose.yml "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Chocobozzz/PeerTube/master/support/docker/production/.env" -o .env

View the source of the files you’re about to download: docker-compose.yml and the traefik.toml

Update the reverse proxy configuration:

$ vim ./docker-volume/traefik/traefik.toml

Tweak the docker-compose.yml file there according to your needs:

$ vim ./docker-compose.yml

Then tweak the .env file to change the environment variables:

$ vim ./.env

Other environment variables are used in support/docker/production/config/custom-environment-variables.yaml and can be intuited from usage.

You can use the regular up command to set it up:

$ docker-compose up

Obtaining Your Automatically Generated Admin Credentials

Now that you’ve installed your PeerTube instance you’ll want to grep your peertube container’s logs for the root password. You’re going to want to run docker-compose logs peertube | grep -A1 root to search the log output for your new PeerTube’s instance admin credentials which will look something like this.

user@s:~/peertube|master⚡ ⇒  docker-compose logs peertube | grep -A1 root

peertube_1  | [example.com:443] 2019-11-16 04:26:06.082 info: Username: root
peertube_1  | [example.com:443] 2019-11-16 04:26:06.083 info: User password: abcdefghijklmnop

What now?

See the production guide “What now” section.


Important: Before upgrading, check you have all the storage fields in your production.yaml file.

Pull the latest images and rerun PeerTube:

$ cd /your/peertube/directory
$ docker-compose pull
$ docker-compose up -d

Build your own Docker image

$ git clone https://github.com/chocobozzz/PeerTube /tmp/peertube
$ cd /tmp/peertube
$ docker build . -f ./support/docker/production/Dockerfile.stretch


We don’t have a Docker image for development. See the CONTRIBUTING guide for more information on how you can hack PeerTube!
