Backup not working

I am trying to apply the temporary patch from Alex. When I input the command,
“docker-compose exec cms-web bash”
I get this error,
“ERROR: Couldn’t connect to Docker daemon at http+docker://localhost - is it running?
If it’s at a non-standard location, specify the URL with the DOCKER_HOST environment variable.”

Do I need to use a different command?

What do you need? Which patch?

Please paste the result of docker ps command

I am trying to run a backup so I can upgrade my server. The command Alex had in his blog post doesn’t work. It gives me the above error. I ma uploading an image of the docker ps output.

If you want to make a backup of your server, simply backup the “shared” folder.

To enter into the xibo container, try the following command.

docker exec -it xibo_cms-web_1 bash

But I don’t think you’ll get anywhere in there.

Thanks, for some reason I forgot that my normal backups also backup the db. Brain cramp I guess.

The containers must be stopped when you take the backup that way - just for awareness. Backing up the shared folder with the containers running will not give you a backup that will restore as the MySQL database will be inconsistent.

Of course, thanks for the reminder Alex.
