You can use the --link option to connect to any server, but it needs to be
called *xmpp*. For example, if you are using a container named ejabberd, you
would use the option *--link ejabberd:xmpp*.
+The database is stored in the /var/lib/biboumi/ directory. If you don’t bind
+a local directory to it, the database will be lost when the container is
+stopped. If you want to keep your database between each run, bind it with
+the -v option, like this: **-v /srv/biboumi/:/var/lib/biboumi**.
