Cannot run custom app in dockerized shinyproxy

Hi I have created a custom app and containerized as explain in https://support.openanalytics.eu/t/how-to-deploy-custom-app-on-shinyproxy/95

And then I have created a dockerized shinyproxy following instructions in : https://github.com/openanalytics/shinyproxy-config-examples/tree/master/02-containerized-docker-engine

If I execute sudo docker run -d -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock --net sp-example-net -p 8080:8080 shinyproxy-example I can see the demo apps and my custom app, but when I click on my app (hgmd) I get the following error:

`Error
Status code: 500

Message: Failed to start container

If I execute the same command before sudo docker run -d -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock --net sp-example-net -p 8080:8080 shinyproxy-example and then run sudo docker run -it -p 3838:3838 hgmd/hgmd my app works

I am running on centos 7 and I have set up this:

cat /etc/systemd/system/docker.service.d/override.conf [Service] ExecStart= ExecStart=/usr/bin/dockerd -H unix:// -D -H tcp://127.0.0.1:2375

This is the Dockerfile I have used to build my custom hgmd app

It’s a little bit too long for me to follow your problem. But you may want to take a look my example app which uses docker-compose to run the shinyproxy. https://github.com/shrektan/shinyproxy-docker-compose-example
