Restoring a DIY backup in the official Docker Bitbucket Server image

I would like to restore a bitbucket DIY backup archive for use in a docker service based on the official Dockerhub image. I've tried invoking the standard Atlassian DIY restore script on an archive added to the image. It runs in the just before exec'ing but the service doesn't start. The service does start if the restore script isn't called.

If anyone has done this successfully some pointers would be appreciated.

It's working. I had to drop the postgres 'bitbucket' database and clear out the files below BITBUCKET_HOME (with a small change to the restore logic to check for files instead of the directory's existence) before invoking the restore script on an archive file copied into the image. The restore script warnings were quite useful. Hope it helps..
