How to use this image
Three directories have been created in the image to be used for configuration, persistent storage and logs.
/mosquitto/config /mosquitto/data /mosquitto/log
When running the image, the default configuration values are used. To use a custom configuration file, mount a local configuration file to
$ docker run -it -p 1883:1883 -p 9001:9001 -v mosquitto.conf:/mosquitto/config/mosquitto.conf eclipse-mosquitto
Configuration can be changed to:
- persist data to
- log to
i.e. add the following to
persistence true persistence_location /mosquitto/data/ log_dest file /mosquitto/log/mosquitto.log
Note: If a volume is used, the data will persist between containers.
Run a container using the new image:
$ docker run -it -p 1883:1883 -p 9001:9001 -v mosquitto.conf:/mosquitto/config/mosquitto.conf -v /mosquitto/data -v /mosquitto/log eclipse-mosquitto
Note: if the mosquitto configuration (mosquitto.conf) was modified to use non-default ports, the docker run command will need to be updated to expose the ports that have been configured.
