Moving to Docker

Trying to get my docker set up, I have it running but cant get items, rules, sitemap working.
Moving from stand alone raspberry pi that uses the files for items, rules and sitemap.
Where do I save these files for docker? It did not create a folder.
I created and saved them in the /opt/openhab/conf folder, but still no sitemap.

I also cant edit my echo device, on my previous setup I could assign a string to each item here, and I dont see that in the docker version. Did I install it incorrectly?

Hey :sunglasses:
Checkout this repo I created for a simple docker setup.
It includes influxdb, grafana, node-RED and mosquitto.
Just be sure, when you are on raspberrypi to use the rpi branch.

To your question.

Since you gave no information how you run the openHAB Docker I will just assume your instance uses docker volumes instead of folders.
That’s why you don’t see anything.
Your docker volumes should be here /var/lib/docker/volumes/ where you can find openhab_conf or similar names or docker_id

Did you read the instructions because I think you missed the part of mounting the volumes?

You already created the /opt/openhab/conf directory but you also need to create /opt/openhab/addons and /opt/openhab/userdata directories. Then these three directories are mounted from the host into the container.

docker run \
        --name openhab \
        --net=host \
        -v /etc/localtime:/etc/localtime:ro \
        -v /etc/timezone:/etc/timezone:ro \
        -v /opt/openhab/addons:/openhab/addons \
        -v /opt/openhab/conf:/openhab/conf \
        -v /opt/openhab/userdata:/openhab/userdata \
        -e "EXTRA_JAVA_OPTS=-Duser.timezone=Europe/Berlin" \
        -d \
        --restart=always \

(replace 2.4.0 with the version you’d like to use)

Thanks that worked, I was using
