Multiple Instances on QNAP

RE: Multiple Instances on QNAP
If you add the ffmpeg executable to the container's /opt/minimserver/opt/bin folder, MinimStreamer will find it automatically.

The simplest way to copy files to the container is to create a shared folder mapping for this purpose. You would need to map a "real" folder on the host to a "virtual" folder in the container, then use File Station to upload the ffmpeg file to the "real" folder, then use a Linux terminal window in the container to copy the ffmpeg file from the "virtual" folder to the correct location. I am away from home without access to my QNAP so I can't post detailed step-by-step instructions.

RE: Multiple Instances on QNAP
Hi,
I have used Container Station to Export my minimserver docker container to a .tar file.
I then used Container Station Import to create a new minimserver docker container with the additional shared folder mounted.
I now have my music library folder mounted and another folder (dockershare) mounted that contains ffmpeg.
I have been searching for the way to copy the ffmpeg file to /opt/minimserver/opt/bin in the minimserver docker container without success.
I can see the minimserver console and another option for Terminal.
I can see the commands available in the Console and do not see anything that looks like it will copy files.

When I click Terminal I see a command line dialog.
Do I use terminal to enter the copy command?
I have not figured out how to get a list of Terminal commands.
If I should use terminal can you point me toward the commands that are available?

Or should I use something else to access the minimserver docker container to copy files?

Chip

To copy the ffmpeg file using the Terminal window, you need to use the Linux cp command. The syntax for this is

cp source-dir/ffmpeg /opt/minimserver/opt/bin

where source-dir is the container directory that contains the ffmpeg file.
