Can we just name the folder db and mount the data in the root... or are you concerned that then this file would then get mounted as well? If so, what about the folder names db and data so that the directory structure is db/data?

Yeah you could, but I like to keep the data separate from source files (i.e. the docker-compose file) for the sake of self-documentation. Also, in the future I would add a README and possibly other assets in the postgres folder, like possibly a seed file. Your call though.

image: postgres
restart: always
- ./db_data:/var/lib/postgresql/data

# To set password, use, etc. Default is u/p/db: postgres/none/postgres
# POSTGRES_DB: warthog-example
# POSTGRES_PASSWORD: testpassword
