Working with the filesystem in dokku (Persistent File Storage)

Dokku is a self hosted heroku-like platform as a service. And if you’ve ever used heroku, you’re aware of its ephemeral filesystem that deletes all your content with each deployment. This is a good system, as it forces you to separate your files from your application, and dokku provides an almost identical ephemeral system like heroku. But most applications need to store files somehow. To go around this, most of us simply upload our files to third party block storage platforms like amazon s3.
