FHEM with Docker
Q: I found your FHEM Installation Guide for a Raspberry Pi. But I am wondering if is it possible to install the FHEM Server using Docker as well?
A: Yes, there is an official FHEM Docker Image available in the Docker Hub.
You will also find detailed instructions in the official FHEM Forum.
You can download the image using the Docker CLI - I am opting for the Debian Bullseye Build:
docker pull fhem/fhem:bullseye
Create a directory that you can use to persist the FHEM generated data - make sure that the Docker user has the rights to write into this directory:
mkdir /opt/fhem chown 1000:1000 /opt/fhem
FHEM uses the port
8083 for it's web interface and port
7072 for a healthcheck. You can either open those ports or simply use your host system network stack:
docker run -d --rm --net=host -v /opt/fhem:/opt/fhem --name fhem fhem/fhem:bullseye
Make sure that your firewall allows access to the web frontend:
ufw allow 8083/tcp Rule added Rule added (v6) ufw reload
And access the web frontend on your server IP + port 8083, e.g.
