Tkohhh’s recommended Unraid setup

Given some of the particulars of Unraid, there are some deviations from the official template that I recommend. You should use the following settings if you have an SSD cache disk/cache pool. Your appdata user share should be set to cache=prefer.

These settings use your SSD cache to store speed-sensitive files like the database and previews, while your larger photo files are saved on the array where you have more space.

Library Path
Container path: /ps/library
Host path: /mnt/user/appdata/photostructure/library

Temp Path (use the template default)
Container path: /ps/tmp
Host path: /mnt/user/appdata/photostructure/tmp

Config Path (use the template default)
Container path: /ps/config
Host path: /mnt/user/appdata/photostructure/config

Logs Path (use the template default)
Container path: /ps/logs
Host path: /mnt/user/appdata/photostructure/logs

Originals Directory
note: This is only necessary if you enable auto-organzation.

First, add a path with the following:
Container path: /orgphotos
Host path: Set the value to a location on your array where you would like your auto-organized files to be saved. Examples might be /mnt/user/Photos/organized or /mnt/user/william/photos.

Add a variable to your docker setup with the name PS_ORIGINALS_DIR, and set the value to /orgphotos

Source Location
Container path: /photos
Host path: [path to your photos on Unraid]

I hope this is helpful… let me know if you have any questions!

As of 2.1.0-alpha, we now have Docker Easy Mode! This simplifies the setup quite a bit.

If you have a cache disk/cache pool, then your appdata user share should be set to cache prefer. If you do not have a cache disk/cache pool, no worries; this setup is still good for you!

Library Path
Container path: /ps/library
Host path: /mnt/user/appdata/photostructure/library

Source Location
Container path: /photos
Host path: [path to your photos on Unraid]

Originals Directory
If you have a cache disk/cache pool and you have auto-organization enabled, then you should add an Originals Directory on your array in order to not fill up your cache with large photos. If you do not have a cache disk/cache pool, or you do not have auto-organization enabled, then this directory is unnecessary.

Container path: /ps/originals
Host path: [location on your array where you would like your auto-organized files to be saved]

And that’s it! Feel free to post here if you have any questions!
