How A Docker Container and Its Server Can Share a Directory

Create the Docker Container with this:

docker run -i -v /absolute/path/on/DockerHost:/absolute/path/in/Docker/Container -t repositoryName /bin/bash

where "/absolute/path/on/DockerHost" is the path and directory on the Docker server that will be presented to the Docker container in the location of "/absolute/path/in/Docker/Container."

The "repositoryName" in the example is found by running this command: docker images
In the results of this command under the left-hand column are the potential repositoryName values.

Be advised that the /absolute/path/in/Docker/Container will have its contents obliterated when the Docker container is created.
