Does this give any clues as to where I may be going wrong?
So you have your path set to
Is this where your files are?
Did you restart the container after copying the files there?
Yes. Container has been restarted.
Here’s my config.yaml:

Well, for starters,
discovery: will not work with you specifying a port to pass through. You need a
--net=host, but I don’t think you can do that on Mac. This should be covered in the docs.
What shows up when you run
docker ps -a? I suspect you have more than one instance running.
docker ps -a
the ? was indicating I was asking a question.
I spotted that too late!
I’ve edited it above.
docker kill homeassistant && docker rm homeassistant && docker kill home-assistant && docker rm home-assistant
Then run your docker run command again
Will that remove both so I start again?
yes. you could technically remove all the docker containers that are running, because it doesn’t look like any of them are important
OK, thank you. I’ll do that.
How do I get an MQTT container configured?
Perhaps you should look at this:
All is now good. Just need to get the MQTT broker running and I’ll be done.
Thank you for your time and help. I appreciate it.
My Docker Stack shows you how a docker-compose file goes together, and the other link was the official documentation to get MQTT running on docker.
It’s not hard at all. Just understand how volumes get mounted, and permissions of the files.
