Run Virola-server in Docker Container on Arch Linux

  1. Always upgrade your Arch before installing a package
    pacman -Syu
    
  2. Install Docker Engine on Arch Linux
    sudo pacman -S docker
    sudo systemctl enable docker.service
    sudo reboot
    
  3. Download the Virola Server Docker Image
    pacman -S wget
    wget https://virola.io/downloads/1.0.19.22100315/virola-server-docker-1.0.19.22100315.tar.gz
    
  4. Load the Docker Image into Container
    docker load < virola-server-docker-1.0.19.22100315.tar.gz
    
  5. Run Virola server in Docker
    docker run -it --rm -p 8888:7777/tcp -p 8888:7777/udp -v $HOME/virola-storage:/virola providesupport/virola-server:latest
    
    Where:
    • 8888 — the port you want to listen on from the outside and to which the virola client will connect. Can be any valid port number (from 1 to 65535), but must be the same for both TCP and UDP protocols;
    • 7777 — is the port inside the Docker container, which must be 7777 and cannot be changed.
    You may also need to open the TCP and UDP ports in the system firewall.

Note: On first launch, the server will create an admin user with the admin password and administrator rights. Please change the default admin password as soon as possible to a more secure one.

You can change user password from the Virola client. You can also change password of an existing user using the --change-password command line argument of the Virola server.
