Qbittorrent: Change Location for config folder

Hello Guys,

i moved from my qbittorrent docker Container to dietpi vm (because qnap make Changes that my VPN in the Container doesnt Work but this another Problem).
On my qnap i have a shared folder where Store the configuration for qbittorrent.
In dietpi i mount the folder.
Is it possible to tell qbittorrent load the config/settings from another Location?

Kind regards,


On DietPi the location is /home/qbittorrent/.config/qBittorrent/qBittorrent.conf, I guess you can just create a symlink, but not to the file directly, because of this.
Instead link to the config folder.

Thank you.
Through the symbol link I was able to load the settings from the container folder.
Unfortunately, all the torrents that were there before are no longer displayed.

@obi8 I see you deleted your last post and I was not able to reproduce this, all my torrents are still there, after setting the soft link. Did you figure out what was wrong?

I accidentally deleted the answer.
I linked the data folder from the container folder to the .locale folder in qbittorrent from dietpi.
This then made the rest of the settings available.
