linuxserver/resilio-sync

GitHub Release MicroBadger Layers MicroBadger Size Docker Pulls Docker Stars Build Status

Resilio-sync (formerly BitTorrent Sync) uses the BitTorrent protocol to sync files and folders between all of your devices. There are both free and paid versions, this container supports both. There is an official sync image but we created this one as it supports user mapping to simplify permissions for volumes.

Supported Architectures

Our images support multiple architectures such as x86-64, arm64 and armhf. We utilise the docker manifest for multi-platform awareness. More information is available from docker here and our announcement here.

Simply pulling linuxserver/resilio-sync 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

Tag

x86-64

amd64-latest

arm64

arm64v8-latest

armhf

arm32v7-latest

Usage

Here are some example snippets to help you get started creating a container from this image.

docker

docker create \
--name=resilio-sync \
-e PUID=1000 \
-e PGID=1000 \
-e TZ=Europe/London \
-e UMASK_SET=<022> \
-p 8888:8888 \
-p 55555:55555 \
-v <path to config>:/config \
-v <path to downloads>:/downloads \
-v <path to data>:/sync \
--restart unless-stopped \
linuxserver/resilio-sync

docker-compose

Compatible with docker-compose v2 schemas.

resilio-sync:
image: linuxserver/resilio-sync

Parameters

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

8888

WebUI

55555

Sync Port.

Environment Variables (-e)

Env

Function

PUID=1000

for UserID - see below for explanation

PGID=1000

for GroupID - see below for explanation

TZ=Europe/London

Specify a timezone to use EG Europe/London.

UMASK_SET=<022>

For umask setting of resilio-sync, default if left unset is 022.

Volume Mappings (-v)

Volume

Function

/config

Where resilio-sync should store its config file.

/downloads

Folder for downloads/cache.

/sync

Sync folders root.

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)

Application Setup

  • Webui is at <your-ip>:8888, for account creation and configuration.

  • More info on setup at Resilio Sync

Support Info

  • Shell access whilst the container is running:

    • docker exec -it resilio-sync /bin/bash

  • To monitor the logs of the container in realtime:

    • docker logs -f resilio-sync

  • Container version number

    • docker inspect -f '{{ index .Config.Labels "build_version" }}' resilio-sync

  • Image version number

    • docker inspect -f '{{ index .Config.Labels "build_version" }}' linuxserver/resilio-sync
