Follow the respective guide for your operating system found here Docker Engine Install Guide

Nadeko Setup Guide

For this guide we will be using the folder /nadeko as our config root folder.

docker create --name=nadeko -v /nadeko/conf/:/root/nadeko -v /nadeko/data:/opt/NadekoBot/src/NadekoBot/bin/Release/netcoreapp1.1/data uirel/nadeko:1.4

-If you are coming from a previous version of nadeko (the old docker) make sure your credentials.json has been copied into this directory and is the only thing in this folder.

-If you are making a fresh install, create your credentials.json from the following guide and place it in the /nadeko folder Nadeko JSON Guide

Next start the docker up with docker start nadeko; docker logs -f nadeko

The docker will start and the log file will start scrolling past. Depending on hardware the bot start can take up to 5 minutes on a small DigitalOcean droplet. Once the log ends with "NadekoBot | Starting NadekoBot v1.0-rc2" the bot is ready and can be invited to your server. Ctrl+C at this point to stop viewing the logs.

After a few moments you should be able to invite Nadeko to your server. If you cannot, check the log file for errors.

Monitoring

  • Monitor the logs of the container in realtime docker logs -f nadeko.

Updates

Manual

Updates are handled by pulling the new layer of the Docker Container which contains a pre compiled update to Nadeko. The following commands are required for the default options

docker pull uirel/nadeko:latest

docker stop nadeko; docker rm nadeko

docker create --name=nadeko -v /nadeko/conf/:/root/nadeko -v /nadeko/data:/opt/NadekoBot/src/NadekoBot/bin/Release/netcoreapp1.1/data uirel/nadeko:1.4

docker start nadeko

Automatic Updates

Automatic update are now handled by WatchTower WatchTower GitHub To setup WatchTower to keep Nadeko up-to-date for you with the default settings, use the following command

docker run -d --name watchtower -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock centurylink/watchtower --cleanup nadeko

This will check for updates to the docker every 5 minutes and update immediately. Alternatively using the --interval X command to change the interval, where X is the amount of time in seconds to wait. e.g 21600 for 6 hours.

If you have any issues with the docker setup, please ask in #help channel on our Discord server but indicate you are using the docker.
