How to mount host directory in while creating Docker Image?

docker

(Karthikeayan) #1

I am trying to create Docker Image which itself has mount point to some directory in Docker Host.
So when I create container with “docekr run”(without -v) using the Image I created it should come up with the mounted directory to the docker host. Is it possible?

It would be helpful if you share the Dockerfile for creating your image, but in general in order to mount a host directory you need to create a Volume first and then point the volume to the appropriate PATH, In case you want to do run the image directly I suggest you use docker-compose. Define a docker-compose.yml with a Volume and your Image details and then run all with docker compose up. Check also here is a very good guide regarding volumes.
