Seafile with podman

I’m trying to install seafile with podman. I’ve replicated the docker-compose file with a shell script so far. Unfortunately, the database setup isn’t working and I’m stuck…

The script:

#!/bin/sh

# This script is used to deploy and update Seafile on ursini
# Start with the following env if this is a new server

podman login -u seafile -p pw docker.seadrive.org

podman pull docker.io/library/mariadb
podman pull docker.io/library/memcached
podman pull docker.io/seafileltd/elasticsearch-with-ik:5.6.16
podman pull docker.seadrive.org/seafileltd/seafile-pro-mc

podman pod rm -f seafile

podman pod create -p 65080:80 --name seafile

# Create MariaDB container in seafile pod
podman create \
  --pod seafile \
  --name seafile-db \
  -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD='mysqlrootpw' \
  -e MYSQL_LOG_CONSOLE=true \
  -v /srv/share/seafile/mysql:/var/lib/mysql \
  mariadb

# Create memcached container in seafile pod
podman create \
  --pod seafile \
  --name seafile-memcached \
  memcached
  #--entrypoint '/usr/local/bin/memcached -m 256' \

# Create elasticsearch container in seafile pod
podman create \
  --pod seafile \
  --name seafile-elasticsearch \
  -e discovery.type=single-node \
  -e bootstrap.memory_lock=true \
  -e "ES_JAVA_OPTS=-Xms1g -Xmx1g" \
  -v /srv/share/seafile/elasticsearch:/usr/share/elasticsearch/data \
  docker.io/seafileltd/elasticsearch-with-ik:5.6.16

# Create seafile container in seafile pod
podman create \
  --pod seafile \
  --name seafile-seafile \
  -v /srv/share/seafile/data:/shared \
  -e DB_HOST=localhost \
  -e DB_ROOT_PASSWD='mysqlrootpw' \
  -e TIME_ZONE='Europe/Zurich' \
  -e SEAFILE_ADMIN_EMAIL='fujexo@c0d3.ch' \
  -e SEAFILE_ADMIN_PASSWORD='sadfHH&Ad9sadf' \
  -e SEAFILE_SERVER_LETSENCRYPT=false \
  -e SEAFILE_SERVER_HOSTNAME='seafile.hcorp.c0d3.ch' \
  docker.seadrive.org/seafileltd/seafile-pro-mc


podman start seafile-memcached seafile-db seafile-elasticsearch
sleep 30
podman start seafile-seafile

I can see that the msyql setup script creates a seafile user inside the database:

MariaDB [(none)]> select * from mysql.user where User='seafile' \G;
*************************** 1. row ***************************
                  Host: %.%.%.%
                  User: seafile

But I get the following error rom the container logs:

Not sure what is exactly happening. But I feel like the setup script isn’t saving the password and has trouble logging in.
Any ideas?

Well, I was able to fix this and have Seafile now running with podman.
