[docker] Make host filesystem available inside container

Post by secs » 18 Aug 2017, 08:09

Hi all.

I have a running system on one of my old house and have recently moved house. In doing so am playing with a new system and used the docker system to set up filebot

My question is probably more docker related but

My media files are hosted on the main file system. How do I get the Node etc to see my input/output directory that reside on my host system.

That's what the -v option of the docker command does.

e.g. make the current working directory available as /volume1 inside the docker container:

Code: Select all

-v $PWD:/volume1
:idea: Note that you need to use absolute paths. Relative paths have special meaning, i.e. virtual volumes that are not mapped to your host filesystem, e.g.

Code: Select all

-v data:/data
@see https://hub.docker.com/r/rednoah/filebot/
My (very excellent) support depends on Windows Store and Mac App Store sales and Patreon support. Paying users, donors and everyone who contributes to FileBot in one way or another will get the very best support.

:idea: Please read the FAQ and How to Request Help.
