When I try to run a Plone docker container, while externalizing /data for example by specifying in docker-compose:
I get the following error when docker tries to install plone:
Error: The directory named as part of the path /data/filestorage/Data.fs does not exist.
(line 51 in file:///plone/instance/parts/instance/etc/zope.conf)
For help, use bin/instance -h
If I don't try to externalize /data the container comes up fine.
Try mkdir /data or change /data with an existing path on your machine
The best practice here is to use docker volumes:
docker run --name=plone -v plone-data:/data plone/plone
Then you can copy your
Data.fs by using
docker cp like:
docker cp Data.fs my-plone:/data/fliestorage/
Otherwise, try to mount specific data directories within container (
docker run -v /opt/docker/wordpress/plone-data/filestorage:/data/filestorage -v /opt/docker/wordpress/plone-data/blobstorage:/data/blobstorage plone/plone
Thank you, thank you, thank you, Alin!
I tried all sorts of things, even creating a new user on my Mac with id 500 to match plone in the Docker container, and nothing worked. I could bash into the container and launch Plone with "bin/instance fg" but "bin/instance start" would always fail.
Then I read your suggestion and made separate Docker compose file lines for filestorage, blobstorage, and log. Voilà! Plone in Docker now works great with host-mounted volumes!!!
