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
     ├── books
     └── tv
  └── usenet
      ├── movies
      ├── music
      ├── books
      └── tv
└── medialibrary
    ├── movies
    ├── music
    ├── books
    └── 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

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
