Finally, there is an official Joomla (4.x) Docker made for unRAID. But it is not done well. As in, you will lose all your settings and data when you restart your docker. So you need to copy the data outside the docker into the appdata folder. (Or wherever you want it)
Inside the docker image, the Joomla folder resides here:
And this is the folder you need to make “external” by adding a path to the edit/install panel.
- Give it a name at “Name:”
- Enter the following line to “Container Path:”
- Enter the following line to “Host Path:”
Oh joy, you lost the admin password. Now what?
If the admin user is still defined, the simplest option is to change the password in the database to a known value. This requires that you have access to the MySQL database using phpMyAdmin.
“what, no hacking?”, I hear you say. No. Again, you need access to the MySQL database by using phpMyAdmin.
- Navigate to phpMyAdmin and select the database for the Joomla site in the left-hand drop-down list box. This will show the database tables on the left side of the screen.
- Click on the table “jos_users” in the list of tables.
- Click on the “Browse” button in the top toolbar.
- Find the user whose password you want to change and press the Edit icon for this row. A form will display that allows you to edit the password field.
- Copy the following value into the password field and press the Go button.
- At this point, the password should be changed to “secret”.
- Log in with this user and password and change the password of this user to a secure value.
