Move Gitea from binary install to Docker

I have my Gitea on a server installed via the binary route. I want to move it to a docker instance.

I read the Gitea Backup & Restore instructions, but it doesnt cover what i want to do.

After the initial setup of the docker instance, when i shell into the docker container as “git” user, all folders are owned by “root” and the instruction are based on user “git”

Any help as to how i can migrate from the binary instance to docker, will be greatly helpful
