Seafile docker dead on deployment

Hi all, looking for some help here.

I followed the instructions here for deploying the seafile docker containers: Seafile Server

Customized nothing besides the mysql path. Started the containers with docker-compose, visited the seahub address and get “502 bad gateway” instead of seahub.

I am also seeing an “access denied” mysql error which makes no sense, because again, I have customized nothing with these containers.

Are the containers considered production ready?

Here’s my logs. Thanks for the help!

The manual you used is outdated. I am not sure this is the cause of your problem, but it’s likely.

Please use the following

(The outdated manual should be taken offline. I agree.)

I am having problems with Docker too and followed the manual you have linked. There are other issues about the same thing (“docker SQL issues” and “fresh installation on debian 11 docker error from setup seafile mysql py see latest post”; sorry, cannot put links). I am using Ubuntu 21.04, not Debian 11.

For some reason the MySQL script fails the first time the container is ran, and if you re-try to manually run it, it acknowledges that previous databases/folders/resources have already been created, but doesn’t continue creating the remaining ones, so it is not possible to finish the database operations for the site to work. I even entered into the db container, ran “mysql-client”, dropped the databases, ran the script again, but it still fails every time).

Whatever I can do to help debugging this issue, plase let me know :slight_smile:

I cannot help you with the docker based deployment.

I know that the instructions for the manual installation work (using Debian 10 and Ubuntu 20.04): Installation with MySQL - Seafile Admin Manual

For what it’s worth I bailed on the docker setup - it flat doesn’t work.

Grabbed a docker nginx (linuxserver.io SWAG) and docker mariadb, then installed seafile server from the .tar.gz. Working fine this way.
