Dockerfile a one-time start-up


(Xartx) #1

Tell me how to build dockerfile so that a particular file in the container only runs when you first start


(Nathan Le Claire) #2
FROM alpine
COPY ./myscript.sh /myscript.sh
ENTRYPOINT ["/myscript.sh"]

There’s no reason it should ever get invoked again, only one process (usually) should be running per container.
