Docker container not showing volume mounted – Access issue
root@centdev01$ grep -e CMD -e RUN Dockerfile RUN apt-get update RUN apt-get -y install ruby ruby-dev build-essential redis-tools RUN gem install --no-rdoc --no-ri sinatra json redis RUN mkdir -p /opt/webapp RUN chmod 777 /opt/webapp CMD ["/opt/webapp/bin/webapp"] root@centdev01$ docker build -t "alok87/sinatra" . root@centdev01$ docker run -d -p 80 --name ubunsin10 -v $PWD/webapp:/opt/webapp alok87/sinatra 25ekgjalgjal25rkg root@centdev01$ docker logs ubunsin10 /opt/webapp/bin/webapp: Permission Denied - /opt/webapp/bin/webapp ( Errno:EACCESS)
The issue is the volume is being mounted to the container but from the container it is not having any acces to the mounted volume. I can cd to /opt/webapp/bin but i can not ls /opt/webapp/bin.
Please suggest how it can be fixed. The host mount has all files having 777 permission.

Docker processes have the svirt_lxc_net_t default type. By default these processes are not allowed to access your content in /var, /root and /home.
You have specify a suitable type label for your host folder, to allow the container processes to access the content. You can do this by giving the $PWD/webapp folder the type label svirt_sandbox_file_t.
chcon -Rt svirt_sandbox_file_t $PWD/webapp
After this, you can access the folder from within the container. Read more about it in Dan Walsh’s article – Bringing new security features to Docker
