Dockstarter

Note

I'm using the default paths in this example, and will keep the other paths unchanged so nothing will break if you make a mistake.

Folder Structure

We're going to use a mounted drive that we're going to use as storage for downloads and your media. In this example the mounted drive will be mounted to /mnt/ with the following folder structure.

storage
├── downloads
|  ├── torrents
│  |  ├── movies
│  |  ├── music
│  |  └── tv
|  └── usenet
│     ├── movies
│     ├── music
│     └── tv
└── medialibrary
    ├── movies
    ├── music
    └── tv

Changes to the .env

To accomplish this we need to change first a few paths in your .env (Usually ~/.docker/compose/.env)

# Global Settings
COMPOSE_HTTP_TIMEOUT=60
DOCKERCONFDIR=~/.config/appdata
DOCKERGID=999
DOCKERHOSTNAME=DockSTARTer
DOCKERLOGGING_MAXFILE=10
DOCKERLOGGING_MAXSIZE=200k
DOCKERSTORAGEDIR=/mnt/storage
PGID=1000
PUID=1000
TZ=America/Chicago

# DEPRECATED Settings (will be removed at the end of 2020)
DOCKERSHAREDDIR=~/shared
DOWNLOADSDIR=/mnt/downloads
MEDIADIR_AUDIOBOOKS=/mnt/medialibrary/audiobooks
MEDIADIR_BOOKS=/mnt/medialibrary/books
MEDIADIR_COMICS=/mnt/medialibrary/comics
MEDIADIR_MOVIES=/mnt/medialibrary/movies
MEDIADIR_MUSIC=/mnt/medialibrary/music
MEDIADIR_TV=/mnt/medialibrary/tv

Changes to your paths

When that's all set then you will need to change the paths you're going to use in the containers from:

/downloads => /storage/downloads

/audiobooks => /storage/medialibrary/audiobooks

/books => /storage/medialibrary/books

/comics => /storage/medialibrary/comics

/movies => /storage/medialibrary/movies

/music => /storage/medialibrary/music

/tv => /storage/medialibrary/tv
