Users and Directories

By default this image runs as a non-root user named valkey with a uid of 65532. Valkey does not have a default data directory, it defaults to whatever the working directory is for the process. We provide a default WORKDIR of /data that is writeable by the valkey user.

If you supply a different configuration file or change the user, UID, or WORKDIR, you'll need to ensure the user running the valkey process has permissions to write to that directory.

When running in Docker using a volume, that should also be taken care of automatically. Here's an example of using a host volume:

% docker run -d -v $(pwd):/data -p 6379:6379 cgr.dev/chainguard/valkey
d029bfb291c7a00618342ab26702dc3788cfda24b85208de04464ccb06681797
$ valkey-cli set foo bar
OK
$ valkey-cli save
OK
$ valkey-cli get foo
"bar"
$ docker kill d029bfb291c7a00618342ab26702dc3788cfda24b85208de04464ccb06681797
