Unable to install data source drivers

Hello everybody,

I am new to Stardog and I am struggling with the correct configuration of the tool. Indeed, it seems that I am unable to make Stardog find the proper data source drivers. More specifically, I am trying to connect to a postgres db.

Here are the steps I followed:

  1. I download the postgres driver from Supported Client Drivers | Stardog Documentation 7.7.1
  2. I put driver (.jar) in the folder /local-path-to/stardog-ext
  3. I run Stardog server with the following command:

docker run -it -e STARDOG_EXT="/local-path-to/stardog-ext" -v /local-path-to/stardog-home/:/var/opt/stardog -p 5820:5820 stardog/stardog

  1. I run the docker version of the stardog client using the following command:

docker run --name=stardog-studio -p 8888:8080 -d stardog/stardog-studio:current

  1. I connect to the stardog client and to the server through the client, but when I try to add a new data source, I get the following error:

I understand that stardog is unable to load (or find) the driver file, but I have no idea how to fix it.

Any idea or guidance on how I could solve that problem?

Thanks a lot!


STARDOG_EXT that you're setting refers to a location on the container. So you'll need to mount another volume:

docker run -it -e STARDOG_EXT="/container-path-to/stardog-ext" \
-v /local-path-to/stardog-home/:/var/opt/stardog \
-v /local-path-to/stardog-ext:/container-path-to/stardog-ext \
-p 5820:5820 stardog/stardog
