NOTE
Petio requires a MongoDB instance running to use as its database.
WARNING

If you don't already have an instance running, perform the following:

    Head to the Community Applications store in Unraid
  2. 2.
    Search for and click to install 'MongoDB' from Taddeusz' Repository
  3. 3.
    If you are using a custom Docker network, select it in the 'Network Type' field.
  4. 4.
    Enter the host port you want to map for connections. By default it is 27017. Only change it if this port is already in use.
