Open WebUI Quickstart

If Ollama is on your computer, use this command:

Terminal window
docker run -d -p 3000:8080 --add-host=host.docker.internal:host-gateway -v open-webui:/app/backend/data --name open-webui --restart always ghcr.io/open-webui/open-webui:main

If Ollama is on a Different Server, use this command:

Terminal window
docker run -d -p 3000:8080 -e OLLAMA_BASE_URL=https://example.com -v open-webui:/app/backend/data --name open-webui --restart always ghcr.io/open-webui/open-webui:main

If you’re only using OpenAI API, use this command:

Terminal window
docker run -d -p 3000:8080 -e OPENAI_API_KEY=your_secret_key -v open-webui:/app/backend/data --name open-webui --restart always ghcr.io/open-webui/open-webui:main

After installation, you can access Open WebUI at http://localhost:3000
