Docker container - need to access other volumes

I've installed Calibre in a docker container. It wants to look for my eBooks in /config/Calibre... but all of my eBooks (60GB) are on a share on /volume2/eBooks. How can I make Calibre/docker access my other volume? I did not allocate 'data' space on volume1 - only apps!

Thanks!

If you want to specify a path to a library use the command line arguments. If you want to control locations of various other directories use the environmnet variables documented in the manual. https://manual.calibre-ebook.com/cus...ment-variables

Thanks for the quick response. I will look at environment variables, but I think all I need is just the location of my ebook library. I don't know how to give a docker container 'command line arguments' - so I'll have to figure that out.

Thanks!

My advice would be to ditch docker, it provides nothing useful and just complicates your life. calibre binaries are already largely self contained, there is zero reason to dockerize them.

Interesting... I have no love for Docker, it just seemed if Plex could access external media, so could Calibre? I looked at the environment variables, and while I can change the location of the database, I did not see anything to change the media path outside of the container. I also could not find anything in command-line options. This may be a testament to my inability to comprehend what I'm reading? - hehe.

So can I set up Calibre (web?) on my NAS server and use via web interface? This way I can use Calibre from all my devices?

It's been too long since I used Calibre-Web, but it should all work if you follow the guideline from GitHub.
I think I set it up via Docker Compose back then and you can specify all the details in the yaml file

Can you please share your docker-compose.yml file? It shouldn't be more to do for you than correctly configuring the volumes parameters.

Yes, I did change the /volume1/docker/calibre:/:config:rw to /volume2/mypathto/ebooksshare:/config:rw... and it works just fine. Calibre is up and running in the docker container - accessing my ebooks share on another volume
