Docker | OpenWebRX

This image is built from the latest released .deb packages and should be identical to a standard OpenWebRX+ installation on Debian. All receivers and demodulators available in this image.


# crete volumes
docker volume create owrxp-settings
docker volume create owrxp-etc

# run container in background
docker run -d --name owrxp \
    --device /dev/bus/usb \
    -p 8073:8073 \
    -v owrxp-settings:/var/lib/openwebrx \
    -v owrxp-etc:/etc/openwebrx \
    --restart unless-stopped \

# add admin user (on another shell)
docker exec -it owrxp openwebrx admin adduser [username]

Blacklisting device drivers on host

You should disable the kernel drivers for RTL, SDRPlay and HackRF devices on the host linux (where docker runs) before running OWRX+ and then reboot.

nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-rtl.conf

#Blacklist RTL driver modules to allow full-range SDR application
# Remove blacklist to restore normal operation, if required
blacklist dvb_usb_rtl28xxu
blacklist dvb_usb_rtl2832u
blacklist dvb_usb_v2
blacklist e4000
blacklist fc0013
blacklist r820t
blacklist rtl2830
blacklist rtl2832
