  • /srv/promet

SELinux users are also required to change the security context of the mount point so that it plays nicely with selinux.

mkdir -p /srv/docker/promet
sudo chcon -Rt svirt_sandbox_file_t /srv/docker/promet

Volumes can be mounted in docker by specifying the -v option in the docker run command.

docker run --name promet-erp -d \
    --publish 10088:8080 \
    --volume /srv/docker/promet:/srv/promet \
