Software used by Wirow

Docker Image

Wirow server Dockerfile

cd ./docker
docker build --no-cache --force-rm -t wirow .

Please mind about the following volume dirs defined in Dokerfile:

  • /data Where wirow database, uploads and room recordings are located.
  • /config/wirow.ini A server configuration file.

Before starting Wirow docker container

Basic check of Wirow server availability:

docker run --rm wirow -h

You have three options how to run a Wirow server:

  • Wirow server on your domain with Let's Encrypt HTTPS Certificates. (Recommended)
  • Wirow server on your host with own HTTPS certificates.
  • Wirow server behind HTTP proxy.

Wirow server on your domain with Let's Encrypt Certificates (Recommended)

Please check what your host is accessible by your domain name and 80/443, 44300-44600 tcp/udp ports are accessible.

Example:


# Below `start01` is the initial password for `admin` user

docker run --name wirow wirow -n mywirow.example.com -a start01

Later you may change your password and manage users by Admin UI.

Wirow server on your host with own HTTPS certificates

Here is the Example:


WIROWSRC=<path to wirow cloned repo>
WORKDIR=<path to my workdir>

mkdir -p ${WORKDIR}/config
cd ${WORKDIR}/config

openssl req -x509 -nodes -days 3650 -newkey ec:<(openssl ecparam -name prime256v1) \
          -keyout wirow-eckey.pem -out wirow-ecdsacert.pem

cp ${WIROWSRC}/docker/wirow.ini ./wirow.ini

echo -e '\n\n[main]' >> ./wirow.ini
echo 'cert_file = {config_file_dir}/wirow-ecdsacert.pem' >> ./wirow.ini
echo 'cert_key_file = {config_file_dir}/wirow-eckey.pem' >> ./wirow.ini

# Below `start01` is the initial password for admin user

docker run --name wirow -v ${WORKDIR}/config:/config wirow -a start01

Point your browser https://172.17.0.2 (specific to this example) then use admin/start01 credentials at login page. Later you may change your password and manage users by Admin UI.
