Error 500 - Failed to start container


#1

Hi,

I encounter this issue after running java -jar shinyproxy-1.0.2.jar and access my app:

Error
Status code: 500

Message: Failed to start container: Request error: POST localhost:2375/containers/create: 400, body: {“message”:“invalid reference format”}

Stack Trace:
eu.openanalytics.ShinyProxyException: Failed to start container: Request error: POST

From the help on shinyproxy.io: https://www.shinyproxy.io/troubleshooting/#failed-to-start-container

I have checked the firewall and it is disabled. I am using Ubuntu 16.04. Any help here?

This might be a docker issue not specific for shinyproxy. Can you try to run the image ‘manually’ outside of shinyproxy, as described in https://www.shinyproxy.io/troubleshooting/#container-did-not-respond-in-time ?

I did do that and the app works. The problem happens when executing it through java -jar shinyproxy-1.0.2.jar

I did some work using the following guide:https://docs.docker.com/install/linux/linux-postinstall/#configure-where-the-docker-daemon-listens-for-connections

Now the error has changed. It says ‘Container did not respond in time’.
Should I undo changes or keep working in this direction? It should be noted I am trying to connect via a windows 7 laptop and the docker is hosted in an ubuntu VM on another server
