FileRun is an application for file management and sharing through the web browser. It allows users to upload, organize, and share files with others.
This tutorial explains how to install FileRun inside a Docker container in the Linux. Commands have been tested on Ubuntu.
Make sure you have installed Docker in your system. If you are using Ubuntu, installation instructions can be found in the post.
You also need to have a running MySQL container. Instructions can be found in the post.
Before starting, create
docker exec -it mysql mysql -u root -p -e "CREATE DATABASE filerun"
- Host network
Run the following command to create a container for FileRun that uses host network:
docker run -d --name=filerun --restart=always --network=host \ -v /opt/filerun/data:/var/www/html \ -v /opt/filerun/user-files:/user-files \ -e FR_DB_USER=root \ -e FR_DB_PASS=pwd123 \ -e FR_DB_NAME=filerun \ -e FR_DB_PORT=3306 \ -e FR_DB_HOST=127.0.0.1 \ filerun/filerun
MySQL container should run on host network as well.
- User-defined bridge network
User-defined bridge network can be used for listening on different port. By default, FileRun service is listening on port 80. It can be changed with
docker network create app-net
docker run -d --name=filerun --restart=always --network=app-net \ -p 8080:80 \ -v /opt/filerun/data:/var/www/html \ -v /opt/filerun/user-files:/user-files \ -e FR_DB_USER=root \ -e FR_DB_PASS=pwd123 \ -e FR_DB_NAME=filerun \ -e FR_DB_PORT=3306 \ -e FR_DB_HOST=mysql \ filerun/filerun
MySQL container should run on the same user-defined bridge network as well.
FR_DB_PASScan be used to specify MySQL credentials.
- When user-defined bridge network is used, don't forget to change
FR_DB_HOST. It specifies MySQL container name.
Open a web browser and go to
<IP_ADDRESS> is the IP address of the system. Follow the installation wizard to prepare FileRun. The default user account will be created. Username and password will be provided in the screen. Once setup is complete, login to the dashboard.
To completely remove FileRun, remove its container:
docker rm --force filerun
Remove FileRun image:
docker rmi filerun/filerun
You can also remove FileRun data:
sudo rm -rf /opt/filerun
If a user-defined bridge network was created, you can delete it as follows:
docker network rm app-net
