In this lesson, we will dive further into the different configurations of Docker containers.

Mount volumes

Your Ansible environment is ready, but you have to use nano or some other editor to make changes to the files that are local to the container. Any change made outside the container has to be replicated inside the container as well.

You can mount a directory using the --volume option. The syntax for mounting a directory is --volume {host directory}:{container directory}

Run the following command below in the terminal:
