Release 1.8 rc3 update not working

I had Release 1.8 rc2 Docker running without any real issues for basic testing. Updated to R 1.8 rc3 and had to update docker to install docker-compose on my Linux CENTOS machine. This server is at The Apache server at port 80 is responding correctly.

With all that Docker update done and containers rebuilt, unable to connect to the Xibo Server at Port 8080. From what little I know, it would appear that DOCKER somehow is using an IP of There is an error in the Docker logs

suggestions where to look?

This is an internal IP address - the one your Docker container has - can you provide the output of docker ps so we can see how things are mapped in your new environment?

If you have Apache running on the HOST as well as the guest, have you made sure that you’ve follow the instructions for running on a different port?

Did you use the custom ports template for your docker-compose setup? Otherwise the CMS will be on port 80 as that’s the default.

Alex/Dan thanks for the quick answers.

  1. Yes, I used the cms_custom-ports.yml file as the instructions outlined. I changed it to 8080.
    I am running apache on this server also.

  2. docker ps output

[dave@xibo ~]$ docker ps

You might have swapped the wrong part of the ports config:


            - "65501:80"

You want:

            - "8080:80"

That was the problem, Thanks it was not clear to me what the format should be.
Also noticed a small typo in the documentation in the section Using Different Ports.
The filename to create is named cms_custom-ports.yml
the command to use is docker-compose -f cms.custom-ports.yml not a major thing

Thanks, i’ve created the documentation and added an extra note about the format of the ports statement.
