Serviio Directory Structure?

I've got Serviio working with docker and I want to understand Serviio's directory structure a little more so I know what data should be persisted. What are the following the directories for?

    Config
    Library

I assume the config directory is probably where the apps configuration files are stored? Library I don't seem to be able to guess what is is used for?

The entire directory structure should persist, but the two you mention are critical. The config folder is just as it's named, containing all the files that manage your profiles and configuration. The Library again is just as it's named. The database is within this folder structure, and that must be maintained.

The reason I mention "persisted", is in docker if the the volume is not mapped and I delete the container It would have to be recreated for those not mapped externally. I would like to be able to persist the settings between deletions in case I updated the image; I think copying the contents of /config out of the container then mapping it to a new location will fix that for me. Not sure whether that would be needed for library?

Re: Serviio Directory Structure?

I'm not familiar enough with how dockers work, so can't say. But I believe that Serviio needs to find the directory structure as it exists within the docker. Of course, the mapped media locations can be anywhere. The media doesn't have to be within the docker sandbox. The database maintains the media locations.
