Where is user data stored?

Kia ora. I’ve installed Discourse on a digital ocean VM using the INSTALL-cloud.md guide. I’m new to Docker but just wanted to confirm - is all user data stored in the /var/discourse install directory?

When I say user data I mean any content within the forum, e.g. posts, user accounts, hashed passwords, uploads etc.

I’m mainly asking from a privacy/security point of view.

And I presume that anything under the /var/lib/docker root is application (i.e. docker image) related and nothing persists in there as far as Discourse is concerned?

Right. Persistent data is in /var/discourse/shared.
