Docker CE installation fails to renew certificate

my certificate expired today.
The auto renew didn’t work.
I stopped and started the container and it returns the follwing which indicates that the script tries to pull something from git and failed.
Is there any update? I am running 9.0.4.

thanks! Till

Does anyone have a workaround for this? Obviously the certificate renewal script within the container stopped working due to the use of unsupported git protocol.

Ok, I worked around this by doing the following:

  • connect to the running container “docker exec -it seafile /bin/bash”
  • vi into /scripts/ and change “git:” to “https:”
  • vi into /shared/ssl/letsencrypt/.git and do the same there
  • disconnect from the container and restart it (docker restart seafile)
    Then the script should run through.
    Don’t restart the compose stack as it will remove the container and re-create it. Then your changes are gone. So this is a temporary fix.

Thank you for guiding me in the correct way, we are still using Pro version but a older version and could not renew the ssl. So I could not run the container as it keeps crashing.

So I stopped the container then used the following to update the file.

docker cp seafile:/scripts/ .

edited the file and changed git to https and then used

docker cp seafile:/scripts/

This solved the issue in the meantime.
