In this post we’ll look at How to Install Double Commander in OMV and Docker.

Double Commander is a free cross platform open source file manager with two panels side by side. It is inspired by Total Commander and features some new ideas.

Installing Double Commander

To install this application, we’ll use Stacks so open up your Portainer and create a new stack. Now copy this into your Stack:

version: "2.1"
    image: linuxserver/doublecommander
    container_name: doublecommander
      - PUID=1000
      - PGID=1000
      - TZ=Europe/London
      - /path/to/config:/config
      - /path/to/data:/data
      - 3000:3000
    restart: unless-stopped

Be sure to change your PUID, PGID, TZ (Time Zone), and the 2 volumes so that they are relevant to your setup.

/data Volume

The /data volume is the host data directories, mount as many as needed.

Once you’ve got the Stack ready, click the “Deploy Container” button and give it a few minutes to pull the image and extract it.

Using Double Commander

Once the Stack has deployed, you can go to http://your-server-address:3000 and you should be able to start using Double Commander on your server to manage files.


While this is a way to manage the files on your server, I don’t condone the use of a file manager like this. I think it’s important to learn the command-line method of managing a server whenever possible.
