Running Server Commands

The full Seq Server Command Line is accessible through the Docker container.

To run a command-line command, for example show-key, the syntax is:

docker run \
  -v $SEQ_DATA:/data \
  datalust/seq \

where $SEQ_DATA is the path to your regular Seq container's data volume.


An existing Seq data volume should not be mounted unless all other container instances with access to the volume have been stopped.

The interactive shell entrypoint is useful for recovery operations and to debug a container that is exiting before the Seq web server starts.
