In most cases you'll need to add additional volumes, depending on your own personal preference, to get access to your files.

Configuration location

Your lidarr configuration inside the container is stored in /config/app, to migrate from another container, you'd probably have to move your files from /config to /config/app.

Executing your own scripts

If you have a need to do additional stuff when the container starts or stops, you can mount your script with the volume /docker/host/ to execute your script on container start or /docker/host/ to execute it when the container stops. An example script can be seen below.

#!/usr/bin/with-contenv bash

echo "Hello, this is me, your script."

Troubleshooting a problem

By default all output is redirected to /dev/null, so you won't see anything from the application when using docker logs. Most applications write everything to a log file too. If you do want to see this output with docker logs, you can set DEBUG to yes.
