Storing data on nfs with seafile-docker

storage
docker

#1

Hi there,

I installed seafile docker as of https://github.com/haiwen/seafile-docker. System started up fine, logged in, down- and uploaded files, everything fine.

But I would like to store seafile-data on a nfs mount. So I symlinked /opt/seafile-data/seafile to a folder on the nfs-mount, but after that the docker image fails to start. From the log:

*** Running /etc/my_init.d/01_create_data_links.sh...
mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/shared/seafile’: File exists
*** /etc/my_init.d/01_create_data_links.sh failed with status 1

*** Killing all processes...

Why’s that? Any suggestion to achieve storing of seafile-data (only libraries, not the db in case of seafile-docker)

Thanks, regard
Jochen

SeaFile doens’t like Symlinks. But why you just nor mount it to /opt/seafile-data/seafile ?

will give it a try. I did not do this because Seafile also does not like existing folders. But that was regarding the stand alone server.

Thanks.

You were right. The container is starting now. Thanks again!!
