This image is deprecated. We will not offer support for this image and it will not be updated. We recommend alternative images such as:

linuxserver/chevereto pulls GitHub Stars GitHub Release GitHub Package Repository GitLab Container Registry Docker Pulls Docker Stars Jenkins Build LSIO CI

Chevereto is an image hosting software that allows you to create a beautiful and full-featured image hosting website on your own server. It's your hosting and your rules, so say goodbye to closures and restrictions.

Supported Architectures

We utilise the docker manifest for multi-platform awareness. More information is available from docker here and our announcement here.

Simply pulling should retrieve the correct image for your arch, but you can also pull specific arch images via tags.

The architectures supported by this image are:

Architecture Available Tag
x86-64 amd64-<version tag>
arm64 arm64v8-<version tag>
armhf arm32v7-<version tag>

Application Setup

Chevereto-Free now has a maintainer!

~~Chevereto-Free will be EOL on 2021-12-31 and no new releases will be produced for it. Our container will continue to be updated until at least that date but we cannot make any assurances beyond it.~~

Access the WebUI at :443. For more information, check out Chevereto Free.

Chevereto requires a MariaDB database, we have an image available here if you require it.

If you are putting Chevereto behind a reverse proxy and need the Real IP to be passed through, edit /config/nginx/site-confs/default, and set set_real_ip_from to match the IP address/address block of your proxy server(s).


To help you get started creating a container from this image you can either use docker-compose or the docker cli.

version: "2"
    container_name: chevereto
      - PUID=1000
      - PGID=1000
      - TZ=Europe/London
      - /path/to/config:/config
      - /path/to/data:/data
      - 80:80
      - 443:443
    restart: unless-stopped
      - chevereto-db

    container_name: chevereto-db
      - PUID=1000
      - PGID=1000
      - TZ=Europe/London
      - MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=<yourrootpass>
      - MYSQL_DATABASE=chevereto
      - MYSQL_USER=chevereto
      - MYSQL_PASSWORD=<yourdbpass>
      - /path/to/config:/config
    restart: unless-stopped

docker cli (click here for more info)

docker run -d \
  --name=chevereto \
  -e PUID=1000 \
  -e PGID=1000 \
  -e TZ=<TZ> \
  -p 80:80 \
  -p 443:443 \
  -v <path to config on host>:/config \
  -v <path to data on host>:/data \
  --restart unless-stopped \


Docker images are configured using parameters passed at runtime (such as those above). These parameters are separated by a colon and indicate <external>:<internal> respectively. For example, -p 8080:80 would expose port 80 from inside the container to be accessible from the host's IP on port 8080 outside the container.

Ports (-p)

Parameter Function
80 http gui
443 https gui

Environment Variables (-e)

Env Function
PUID=1000 for UserID - see below for explanation
PGID=1000 for GroupID - see below for explanation
TZ=<TZ> Timezone (i.e., America/New_York)

Volume Mappings (-v)

Volume Function
/config config directory volume mapping
/data data directory volume mapping

Miscellaneous Options

Parameter Function

Environment variables from files (Docker secrets)

You can set any environment variable from a file by using a special prepend FILE__.

As an example:

-e FILE__PASSWORD=/run/secrets/mysecretpassword

Will set the environment variable PASSWORD based on the contents of the /run/secrets/mysecretpassword file.

Umask for running applications

For all of our images we provide the ability to override the default umask settings for services started within the containers using the optional -e UMASK=022 setting. Keep in mind umask is not chmod it subtracts from permissions based on it's value it does not add. Please read up here before asking for support.

User / Group Identifiers

When using volumes (-v flags), permissions issues can arise between the host OS and the container, we avoid this issue by allowing you to specify the user PUID and group PGID.

Ensure any volume directories on the host are owned by the same user you specify and any permissions issues will vanish like magic.

In this instance PUID=1000 and PGID=1000, to find yours use id user as below:

  $ id username
    uid=1000(dockeruser) gid=1000(dockergroup) groups=1000(dockergroup)

Docker Mods

Docker Mods Docker Universal Mods

We publish various Docker Mods to enable additional functionality within the containers. The list of Mods available for this image (if any) as well as universal mods that can be applied to any one of our images can be accessed via the dynamic badges above.

Support Info

  • Shell access whilst the container is running:
  • docker exec -it chevereto /bin/bash
