Successfully ran docker-compose up --build -d on MacOS, but nothing happens after

Hi, I am trying to get a local version of Xibo running on my machine so that I can work on extending/integrating. I followed all the instructions (per and ran docker-compose up --build -d, yielding an output of:

Successfully built f20745f5e3b2
Successfully tagged xibo-cms_web:latest

xibo-cms_web_1 is up-to-date
xibo-cms_xmr_1 is up-to-date
xibo-cms_swagger_1 is up-to-date

But nothing happens afterword? How do I access the application?

Same behaviour on Ubuntu and using Xibo version 1.8.13 (, I know I’m missing a step or doing something stupid

You access it in a web browser on whatever ports are defined in your docker-compose file.

@alex Here is the docker compose file:

version: "3"

    image: mysql:5.6
    - 3315:3306
    - ./containers/db:/var/lib/mysql
      MYSQL_DATABASE: "cms"

    image: xibosignage/xibo-xmr:latest
    - "9505:9505"
      XMR_DEBUG: "true"
      IPV6RESPSUPPORT: "false"
      IPV6PUBSUPPORT: "false"

      context: .
    - ./:/var/www/cms
    - "81:81"
      CMS_DEV_MODE: "true"
      MYSQL_DATABASE: "cms"

    image: swaggerapi/swagger-ui:latest
    - "8081:8081"
    - API_URL=http://localhost/swagger.json

    image: ianw/quickchart

I cannot access it at any of these ports? What should the full URL be

It’ll be on your local machine, port 81. If you’re running Docker on a Mac, then you may need to forward ports in the VM that Docker uses to be able to access those.

@alex Does Ubuntu running in virtual box require additional configuration as well?

If your Ubuntu VM is in bridged mode then no - it’ll just work.

You’d access the CMS inside the VM at http://localhost:81 and from your host machine at the VM’s IP address on port 81.

Okay getting desperate, started from scratch (Virtualbox Ubuntu VM with bridged mode OFF) with
version 1.8.13 as per the github link
With the default settings I get an EADDINUSE error for port 80. I went into the docker-compose.yml file and changed:

      context: .
    - ./:/var/www/cms
    - "82:82"
      CMS_DEV_MODE: "true"
      MYSQL_DATABASE: "cms"

Changing “80:80” to “82:82”

Now it builds with docker-compose and everything seems fine. But navigating to localhost (in Ubuntu VM) port 82 does not work. It says the site may be temporarily busy “Unable to Connect” on firefox

Here is output of ports in use:

Try running docker ps to see whats running after you’ve up'ed - just in case the container is stopping for some reason

Its just Apache sitting in there, nothing fancy

Unless you’ve a particular reason you want to use develop or release22, not 1.8 (which is over a year old now).

@dan @alex
I really appreciate your help on this, thank you.
We’re using this particular version because it’s more barebones for the functionality we want to extend. But the result of docker ps is:

Ive not built a fresh 1.8 dev environment for several years now, so I can’t be 100% sure that what is there will work out the box.

You might need to exec into your web container and make sure everything looks good inside there docker exec -it xibocms_web_1 sh

Or it might be a PHP error (although I think you’d except to see a 500 rather than a network error when accessing). However to rule that out you could put error_reporting / display_errors at the top of web/index.php


    - "82:82"

This is mapping “inside port” to “outside port”. The inside port is 80, not 82.

What Dan says; I just got bit by that myself.

Don’t change both 80’s to 82, only the second one:

- “80:82”

Then you should (after a ‘down’ and an ‘up’) be able to point a browser at localhost:82, and get your login prompt.
