Running PowerDNS-Admin

There are several ways to run PowerDNS-Admin. The easiest way is to use Docker. If you are looking to install and run PowerDNS-Admin directly onto your system check out the Wiki for ways to do that.


This are two options to run PowerDNS-Admin using Docker. To get started as quickly as possible try option 1. If you want to make modifications to the configuration option 2 may be cleaner.

Option 1: From Docker Hub

The easiest is to just run the latest Docker image from Docker Hub:

$ docker run -d \
    -e SECRET_KEY='a-very-secret-key' \
    -v pda-data:/data \
    -p 9191:80 \

This creates a volume called pda-data to persist the SQLite database with the configuration.

Option 2: Using docker-compose

  1. Update the configuration
    Edit the docker-compose.yml file to update the database connection string in SQLALCHEMY_DATABASE_URI. Other environment variables are mentioned in the legal_envvars. To use the Docker secrets feature it is possible to append _FILE to the environment variables and point to a file with the values stored in it.
    Make sure to set the environment variable SECRET_KEY to a long random string (

  2. Start docker container

    $ docker-compose up

You can then access PowerDNS-Admin by pointing your browser to http://localhost:9191.
