How to update Emby Server in a docker container ?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am using Emby in a docker container on my Synology 1819+ NAS.

I am using the Synology Docker Package and the "linuxserver/emby:latest" docker image. Right now, I am running Emby 4.3.1.0 version. I wish to update it to the 4.4.2.0 version.

How can I do it without having to reinstall everything ? Is it possible ?

 

Thanks !

 

edit : I found the tutorial : https://hub.docker.com/r/linuxserver/emby

It seams to do exactly what I want. So I guess I am going to find a way to backup my emby docker container and update it following this tutorial. I just need to find a way to back it up !

Thanks Luke.

I finally did it yesterday following the instruction of someone on a forum and it worked. Here is how I did :

 

Step 1 : backup => Copy the shared docker/emby folder

Stop the container.
Export the container (content + parameter)

Step 2 : delete the linuxserver/emby:latest image (if not done yet) from the "image" docker menu

Step 3 download the new linuxserver/emby:latest image from docker regestry

Step 4 : from the container menu, right clic on the container (which is stopped), action => delete

Step 5 : from the container menu, right clic on the container (which is stopped), action => start

Wait a couple minutes until the container has started then from the emby administration interface (http://NASip:8096/ by default), clic on the wheel, top right on the left menu, it tells you it need a restart so you restart it

Step 6 : Wait a couple minutes until the container has started then from the emby administration interface (http://NASip:8096/ by default), clic on the wheel, top right on the left menu then double check that you have the right version number on the left

Step 7 : grab a beer to congratulate yourself for the well done job.

 

edit : Tutorial V2 (same as above but more detailed and reordered) :

Step 1 : Stop the emby container

Step 2.1 : backup => Copy the shared docker/emby folder

Step 2.2 : backup => Export the container (content + parameter)

Step 3 : delete the linuxserver/emby:latest image (if not done yet) from the "image" docker menu

Step 4 : download the new linuxserver/emby:latest image from docker regestry

Step 5 : from the container menu, right clic on the container (which is stopped), action => delete

Step 6 : from the container menu, right clic on the container (which is stopped), action => start

Step 7 : Wait a couple minutes until the container has started then from the emby administration interface (http://NASip:8096/ by default)

Step 8 : clic on the wheel, top right on the left menu, it tells you it need a restart. So you restart it.

Step 9 : Wait a couple minutes until the container has started then from the emby administration interface (http://NASip:8096/ by default)

Step 10 : clic on the wheel, top right on the left menu then double check that you have the right version number on the left

Step 11 : grab a beer to congratulate yourself for the well done job.

@Niklos thats a very convoluted way to update dockers. If you keep your emby config data outside of the docker you should be able to update the container without having to setup everything again. Thats kind of the point of using dockers. I’d suggest also checking out https://github.com/containrrr/watchtower its a docker container which can keep all your other dockers up to date. (It will require ssh into synology for initial setup) Hope this info will make your life a bit easier.
