Introduction of Deploying WizNote Server Docker Image


此內容未以你的語言提供。 以下為英文。

We have uploaded the server docker image to Docker Hub. You could host WizNote Server on your server or your PC( Windows/Linux/Mac) after several steps below.

Install Docker

If you have already installed the Docker application, please go to the next step.

Visit the Docker website to download Docker Desktop.

Windows or MacOS, please click this link to download: have to register an account before downloading.

For Linux, please click this link to download the CE for your specific Linux OS edition:

After installing, please run the docker desktop.

Notice: If you want to launch all features of WizNote Server, please limit the Docker Engine 4G at least (2G as default).

Launch Docker desktop - Preferences - Advanced, change the Memory to 4G

If the resource is insufficiency, you could reduce the cost of memory(2G as default) by disabled the search service: remove the argument SEARCH = true when you run the command to start the docker container.

Download and Run the Docker Image

MacOS / Linux

  1. Run this command in Terminal to create a data folder
cd ~
mkdir wizdata

Create a folder wizdata for preserving all the data of WizNote Server. Please backup this folder regularly. If you want to use NAS or private cloud as data storage, please contact us.

  1. Run the command below to run the docker container


docker run --name wiz -it -d -v ~/wizdata:/wiz/storage -v /etc/localtime:/etc/localtime -p 80:80 -e SEARCH=true wiznote/wizserver


docker run --name wiz -it -d -v ~/wizdata:/wiz/storage -p 80:80 -e SEARCH=true -e TZ=`ls -la /etc/localtime | cut -d/ -f8-9` wiznote/wizserver


  1. Press Win + R, or click Start Menu - Run, then input this and press Enter.
  1. Input this command in the window
cd \
md wizdata

It will create a folder wizdata in D:\ for preserving all the data. You could modify this folder.

  1. Then run this command in terminal.
docker run --name wiz -it -d -v  D:\wizdata:/wiz/storage -p 80:80 -e SEARCH=true wiznote/wizserver

It is the first time to run the docker container, so it needs to download the image and initiate the data. Please wait for a while(depends on the network connection; it will take 10 minutes or longer). After the download process finished, the time of running will take 2-3 minutes.

Launch the browser, visit http://localhost.

You will see this page:

If it displays like the page below, it means the server has not ready, please wait a minute and refresh.

Modify the Port

If port 80 has occupied, you could modify it to 8080 or another one.


docker run --name wiz -it -d -v  ~/wizdata:/wiz/storage -p 8080:80 -e SEARCH=true wiznote/wizserver


docker run --name wiz -it -d -v  D:\wizdata:/wiz/storage -p 8080:80 -e SEARCH=true wiznote/wizserver

After modified the port, please change the link of the website accordingly.


You could open the web application by visiting your IP address like this, so the user in the same LAN could connect the server via IP address and port(opt)

The case when you modify the port like this:

On Windows, you have to make the port through the firewall.

Restart the Container

After modifying the port or the search service, please restart the container and the WizNote Server

docker stop wiz
docker rm wiz
docker run --name wiz -it -d -v  ~/wizdata:/wiz/storage -p 80:80 -e SEARCH=true wiznote/wizserver

Please change the third line as you require

Restart the WizNote Server

docker start wiz

Update the Image

docker stop wiz
docker rm wiz
docker pull wiznote/wizserver:latest
docker run --name wiz -it -d -v  ~/wizdata:/wiz/storage -p 80:80 -e SEARCH=true wiznote/wizserver

Modify the Time Zone

For example, change the time zone to UTC/GMT+08:00

docker exec -it wiz /bin/bash
cp /usr/share/zoneinfo/Asia/Shanghai /etc/localtime

Get local time zone


Add -v /etc/localtime:/etc/localtime to the running command to get local time zone

run --name wiz -it -d -v  ~/wizdata:/wiz/storage -p 8088:80 -v  /etc/localtime:/etc/localtime -e SEARCH=true wiznote/wizserver


-e TZ=`ls -la /etc/localtime | cut -d/ -f8-9`


How to configure https?


Which account should I sign in to manage the console?

Default administrator account: password:123456 Please change the password after you finished the deployment.

Where my data preserved?

All data(include files and databases were saved in the data folder(the wizdata folder as we mentioned). Please make sure to back up this folder regularly for preventing data loss.

How to restart the server after I restarted my computer or server?

Run this command in terminal

docker start wiz

Are the applications of WizNote acceptable of the Docker Server?

Yes, you could connect the server via all the client by choosing the Enterprise Server when you log in and then input the address of your docker server. Please notice: The same LAN is necessary.
