Docker - WebDAV Container Setup

Here I describe my setup of the WebDAV container.

I run this Docker container on a Ubuntu VM that runs via [[ Proxmox VE ]]. I perform the following on the CLI.

Docker pull command:

docker pull jgeusebroek/webdav

Within my home folder I have created a Docker folder where I create a subfolder for each container:

cd ~
mkdir -p docker/webdav
cd docker/webdav

Also create a folder where the WebDAV data can be saved:

mkdir data

I use the Nano text editor to create a shell script:

sudo nano

With this shell script we are going to create the container. Copy the following into

IDu=$(id -u $(logname)) # Saves the logged in user id in the IDu variable
IDg=$(id -g $(logname)) # Saves the logged in user group in the IDg variable

docker run -d \
 -p \
 --hostname=webdav \
 --name=webdav \
 -v $PWD/data:/webdav \
 -e 'TZ=Europe/Amsterdam' \
 -e USER_UID=$IDu \
 -e USER_GID=$IDg \
 -e WHITELIST='192.168.1.*|172.16.1.*' \
 -e READWRITE=true \

If necessary, adjust the following:

Choose a port that is still available, I chose 873. Check this with netstat

-v $PWD/data:/webdav
Choose the location for the WebDAV data. In this example it is the data map we created

-e ‘TZ=Europe/Amsterdam’
Pick the right timezone

-e WHITELIST=’192.168.1.|172.16.1.‘
Optionally adapt to other local IP ranges that use WebDAV

Exit Nano (CTRL-X) and save the changes.

Now create the container:

sudo sh

Check if the container is running properly.

See also my notes about updating containers with Portainer or via the CLI. With Synology’s Docker Application, updating a container is also very easy.
