Jackett Container on Ununtu server 18.04 installation issues

I’ve had too many issues with the traditional install of Jackett so I want to try out the docker container. I used the config file verbatim…

    image: linuxserver/jackett
    container_name: jackett
      - PUID=1000
      - PGID=1000
      - TZ=Europe/London
      - RUN_OPTS=run options here #optional
      - path to data:/config
      - path to blackhole:/downloads
      - 9117:9117
    restart: unless-stopped

When I run docker-compose…
docker-compose pull jackett
I get an error about ```
- path to data:/config

not having a config file present.   Am I missing something? Am I supposed to put a config somewhere? Is there a command I'm supposed to run after I add the stuff to my docker-compose .yaml? I'm sorry that this is such a noob post.  I'm just not that familiar with docker.. I do have other stuff running in it though. Ombi, portainer, etc. Thanks for your time.

You need to replace path to data with a folder of your choice on the host. It’s a variable you need to set

Ok I see. Second question then. Do I need to have the RUN-OPTS line and the path to blackhole line? What is the blackhole?

Only if you need them. If not, take them out

Thank you. I’ve had so many issues with jackett lately I guess I didn’t do the base research on installing thru docker. I really appreciate your time and effort.
