I habe a question: in the Dockerfile I see three volumes being mentioned:
VOLUME ["/opt/domoticz/scripts", "/opt/domoticz/backups", "/opt/domoticz/db"]
However, I don't see domoticz using the /db directory. Now the default seems to be for domotics to use the same directory as the executable. In this case /opt/domoticz.
When I look in an other docker image, the db-directory is specified by starting domoticz with a '-dbase' parameter:
ENTRYPOINT ["/src/domoticz/domoticz", "-dbase", "/config/domoticz.db"]
CMD ["-www", "8080"]
Is this an oversight in your dockerfile, or am I missing something?
