Errors at docker-compose up

Cannot start service nginx

Error message when running docker-compose up -d (example from Windows):

ERROR: for nginx Cannot start service nginx: driver failed programming external connectivity on endpoint
openrem-nginx (...): Error starting userland proxy: listen tcp bind: An attempt was made to access a
socket in a way forbidden by its access permissions.
ERROR: Encountered errors while bringing up the project.

This error indicates port 80 is not available for Docker/OpenREM. Try:

  • Shutting down other web servers, such as IIS

  • Using an alternative port temporarily for OpenREM:

    • Edit the docker-compose.yml file

    • Find the section that includes

        - 80:80
    • Change the external facing port to a high number, for example:

        - 8080:80

Now stop and start the containers again:

$ docker-compose down
$ docker-compose up -d

If there are no errors, check that the containers are up and which ports are in use:

$ docker-compose ps

Connection was reset, Orthanc restarting

  • After installation, browsing to the webservice reports “The connection was reset”.

  • docker-compose ps reports:

openrem-orthanc-1                      / /tmp ...   Restarting
  • Orthanc Docker logs include:

This might indicate that the bind mounts have not worked. This might be due to SELinux, particularly if you are using Red Hat or Fedora or related distributions.
