Hub 2022.1 Help

Change Database Location for Docker

The default directory where Hub stores data contains the following subdirectories:




Contains the database for the Hub service


May contain other internal product data

When you copy your existing database to the new location, make sure the new location uses the same folder structure that is shown here.

Structure of the Hub database directory

As Hub service runs inside a docker container, you can change only the location of the database on the host machine. In this case you need to move the database to a new location, and then specify the new path as parameter of the docker run command.

  1. Back up the database. Just in case.

  2. Stop the Hub docker container. For specific instructions, see Stop Hub docker container.

  3. Create a new directory for the database.

  4. Move the content of the current database directory (data) to the new directory.

  5. Provide the user 13001:13001 that runs Hub service inside the container with the access permissions to the new database directory. For more details, see the Create and Configure Directories page.

  6. Run the docker container with the new path to the database on hosting machine:

    docker run -it --name <hub-server-instance> \ -v <path to new data directory>:/opt/hub/data \ -v <path to conf directory>:/opt/hub/conf \ -v <path to logs directory>:/opt/hub/logs \ -v <path to backups directory>:/opt/hub/backups \ -p <port on host>:8080 \ jetbrains/hub:<version>
    • Hub service starts with the data directory inside the container (/opt/hub/data) mapped to the new database location on the hosting machine.

The same way you can change location of the conf, logs, backups, and temp directories.
