Frequently Asked Questions¶
Do you support Podman?¶
Podman works just fine both in rootless and under root. Mind the SELinux which is enabled on Red Hat compatible systems, you may hit permission error problems.
Do you provide LXC images?¶
Mapping database directory¶
Everytime a container with PhotoPrism is removed, the database is lost. To prevent unwanted reindex process, map the database directory to directory on the host similarly like folder with original photos:
docker run -d --name photoprism -p 2342:2342 ... \ -v /srv/photoprism/db:/home/photoprism/.local/share/photoprism/resources/database \ photoprism/photoprism:latest
Our database schema still changes a lot as we do performance optimizations and add features. Therefore we cannot provide a smooth upgrade path and you should be prepared to delete your current database and re-index. To spare you a disappointment, we kindly advise you not to index large photo collections at the moment.
