GitHub Workflow Status Docker Pulls

A Docker image for PHP Library Presenter for PLEX.

Feel free to submit Pull Requests and report any Issues that you may have found.


Provides a PHP front end to simply present PLEX libraries on the web without the possibility to play or download the library items. Currently movie/home video, TV show, music and photo/picture libraries are supported.


docker create \
  --name plpp \
  -v <path to data>:/config \
  -e PGID=<gid> -e PUID=<uid>  \
  -p 80:80 \

Then start the container with:

docker start plpp

For Docker-Compose you can use something similar to the below:

  container_name: plpp
  image: tronyx/plpp
  hostname: plpp
  restart: on-failure
    - "/home/plpp/config/:/config"
    - "8383:80"

This image is also available in GitHubs Container Registry at


The parameters are split into two halves, separated by a colon, the left hand side representing the host and the right the container side. For example with a port -p external:internal - what this shows is the port mapping from internal to external of the container. So -p 8080:80 would expose port 80 from inside the container to be accessible from the host's IP on port 8080 and http://192.168.x.x:8080 would show you what's running INSIDE the container on port 80.

  • -p 80 - The port(s)
  • -v /config - Mapping the config files for PLPP
  • -e PGID Used for GroupID - see below for explanation
  • -e PUID Used for UserID - see below for explanation

It is based on Alpine Linux with an s6 overlay.

User / Group Identifiers

Sometimes when using data 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 the data volume directory on the host is owned by the same user you specify and it will "just work" ™.

In this instance PUID=1001 and PGID=1001. To find yours use id user as below:

  $ id <dockeruser>
    uid=1001(dockeruser) gid=1001(dockergroup) groups=1001(dockergroup)


Manifested docker images built with buildkit.

Supported architetures:

Architecture Tag
x86-64 linux-amd64
arm64 linux-arm64
armhf linux-arm-v7


This should be a drop-in replacement coming from tronyx/docker-plpp as all I did was change the name.

Setting up the application

Point your web browser to DOCKER-HOST-IP:PLPP-PORT/settings.php, IE: http://192.168.x.x:8080/settings.php and you will first be prompted to set the password for the settings section. Once you're done that you can login and configure the settings.


  • Shell access whilst the container is running: docker exec -it plpp /bin/bash
  • To monitor the logs of the container in realtime: docker logs -f plpp
  • Container version number: docker inspect -f '{{ index .Config.Labels "build_version" }}' plpp
  • Image version number: docker inspect -f '{{ index .Config.Labels "build_version" }}' tronyx/docker-plpp
