SOLVED:Seafile Pro Docker download host login is failing


#1

Attempted(August 9th-10th 2018)
I did this previously but due to some other issues I am starting fresh.
I gathered the host name login and password from https://customer.seafile.com/downloads/.
After i enter “docker login docker.domain.com” (In case this isnt to be made public i have swapped out the domain from what was actually shown)
It responds with:
“Warning: failed to get default registry endpoint from daemon (Got permission denied while trying to connect to the Docker daemon socket at unix:///var/run/docker.sock: Get http://%2Fvar%2Frun%2Fdocker.sock/v1.38/info: dial unix /var/run/docker.sock: connect: permission denied). Using system default: https://index.docker.io/v1/

Then it requests user name which i enter ‘seafile’ from the instructions then the password.

The response was:
“Got permission denied while trying to connect to the Docker daemon socket at unix:///var/run/docker.sock: Post http://%2Fvar%2Frun%2Fdocker.sock/v1.38/auth: dial unix /var/run/docker.sock: connect: permission denied”
Is the service down or have i got something wrong? The ubuntu box does have internet access.

login works for me. I think it’s a local issue on your device. Is your user in the docker group? Otherwise you have to run all commands as root (su / sudo).

And is your docker daemon running? With systemd it can be started using systemctl start docker.service

Thanks! Yup I had forgotten to re-add the user into the docker group this go round.
works fine now. Thank you.
