Commands to create SQL and Snipe-It Containers (docker ps – to list containers)

Create your env.txt file and make a note of the full path to it on the machine

Create SQL Container:

docker run –name snipe-mysql –env-file=my_env_file –mount source=snipesql-vol,target=/var/lib/mysql -d -P mysql:5.6


Create Snipe-IT container (without SSL) 

docker run -d -p 80:80 –name=”snipeit” –link snipe-mysql:mysql –env-file=my_env_file –mount source=snipe-vol,dst=/var/lib/snipeit snipe/snipe-it:latest


Create Snipe-IT container (with SSL)

docker run -d -p 80:80 -p 443:443 –name=”snipeit” –link snipe-mysql:mysql –mount source=snipe-vol,dst=/var/lib/snipeit –env-file=my_env_file snipe/snipe-it


Copy the SSL certificate (if using SSL) 

docker cp snipeit-ssl.crt snipeit:/var/lib/snipeit/ssl/snipeit-ssl.crt

docker cp snipeit-ssl.key snipeit:/var/lib/snipeit/ssl/snipeit-ssl.key


Run the docker in command line to get APP_KEY

docker run –rm snipe/snipe-it


Output will show (actual key will be different than this example):

Please re-run this container with an environment variable $APP_KEY

An example APP_KEY you could use is: 



Add the resulting APP_KEY to the env.txt file and generate the container again

Restore the backup file from the previous installation

scp <backupfile.zip> <username>@<hostname>:<destination path>

Copy the Backup to :/var/www/html/storage/app/backups/

docker cp backupfile.zip snipeit:/var/www/html/storage/app/backups/backupfile.zip


Copy the Public and Storage files from the previous installation

docker cp /path/to/storage/private_uploads-folder snipeit:/var/lib/snipeit/data

docker cp /path/to/public/uploads-folder snipeit:/var/lib/snipeit/data/


Restore the DB in the GUI

You will get a 500 error, just go back in the browser and login again
