Xibo Docker - Can't log into CMS from external hosts


I’m just in the process of migrating our xibo installation to docker.

So far so good (with your help). However…

Whenever i try to log into the CMS from any host outside the machine running docker, i get username/password error. If i try the same on the host using the localhost url, i can log in OK.

I thought it might be firewall related, but i can get to the login screens on both, just not actually get past the password validation part.

I’ve tried this on 2 separate PCs with 2 separate docker installations and the result is the same with both.

Docker is running on Windows 10 Education in both instances.

I’m at a loss as to what’s going on. :frowning:

Apologies, I think I’ve found the reason for this.

I hadn’t set a config.env entry for the CMS_SERVER_HOSTNAME

Setting it to the hostname of the PC fixed it.

Still, it might be helpful for someone else.
