Starting the container¶
docker run --rm \ --name overseerr \ -p 5055:5055 \ -e PUID=1000 \ -e PGID=1000 \ -e UMASK=002 \ -e TZ="Etc/UTC" \ -v /<host_folder_config>:/config \ hotio/overseerr
version: "3.7" services: overseerr: container_name: overseerr image: hotio/overseerr ports: - "5055:5055" environment: - PUID=1000 - PGID=1000 - UMASK=002 - TZ=Etc/UTC volumes: - /<host_folder_config>:/config
Using a secure Plex connection¶
If you want to keep using secure connections within Plex, but don't want to buy your own domain and keep the connection between Overseerr and Plex inside of their Docker network. Follow the below procedure.
We'll use Google Chrome in this example. Visit
https://app.plex.tv and make sure you are logged in. Open Chrome DevTools (usually F12) and open the
Console tab, then refresh your browser window. One of the very first lines you will see is
[Servers] Initialize server with token, ..., in that message you should see some url that looks like
https://10-1-0-100.xxxxxxxxxxxxx.plex.direct:32400. Part of that url can be used in your Overseerr settings, the part
10-1-0-100.xxxxxxxxxxxxx.plex.directis what you'll need to copy/paste, the port is in a seperate input box and enable SSL. You should however give the Plex container a static IP if you don't wanna do this every 5 minutes.
