Customizing configuration and persistence location
By default data and configuration is stored inside the container and will be lost after the container has been shut down and removed. To persist these files you can mount these directories to directories on your host system:
docker run -p 61616:61616 -p 8161:8161 \ -v /your/persistent/dir/conf:/opt/activemq/conf \ -v /your/persistent/dir/data:/opt/activemq/data \ rmohr/activemq
ActiveMQ expects that some configuration files already exists, so they won't be created automatically, instead you have to create them on your own before starting the container. If you want to start with the default configuration you can initialize your directories using some intermediate container:
docker run --user root --rm -ti \ -v /your/persistent/dir/conf:/mnt/conf \ -v /your/persistent/dir/data:/mnt/data \ rmohr/activemq:5.15.4-alpine /bin/sh
This will bring up a shell, so you can just execute the following commands inside this intermediate container to copy the default configuration to your host directory:
chown activemq:activemq /mnt/conf chown activemq:activemq /mnt/data cp -a /opt/activemq/conf/* /mnt/conf/ cp -a /opt/activemq/data/* /mnt/data/ exit
The last command will stop and remove the intermediate container. Your directories are now initialized and you can run ActiveMQ as described above.
