Problems with Mattermost/Docker installation

Hey Guys,

I can’t get Mattermost to work with docker-compose. Can you please help me?

Here is my setup:

  • Debian 11 Bullseye
  • Docker
  • Docker-Compose
  • Portainer
  • Nginx Proxy Manager

I have installed a few applications within Portainer and Nginx Proxy Manager. The Port 8000 is already used by portainer, and 80 and 443 are already used bei Nginx Proxy Manager.

Now I want to install Mattermost Team-Edition on my setup via docker-compose.

So I went through this Tutorial: Deploy Mattermost on Docker

Here it says I should do this:

sudo apt-get install git
git clone LINK TO MATTERMOST DOCKER
cd mattermost-docker
docker-compose build
mkdir -pv ./volumes/app/mattermost/{data,logs,config,plugins,client-plugins}
sudo chown -R 2000:2000 ./volumes/app/mattermost/
docker-compose up -d

Which I did. The folders are all writeable, and I configured after the “docker-compose build” my docker-compose.yml as it is said, when I want to install the team edition.

Here is my docker-compose.yml:

version: "3"

services:

  db:
    build: db
    read_only: true
    restart: unless-stopped
    volumes:
      - ./volumes/db/var/lib/postgresql/data:/var/lib/postgresql/data

    environment:

      # use the credentials you've set above, in the format:
      # MM_SQLSETTINGS_DATASOURCE=postgres://${MM_USERNAME}:${MM_PASSWORD}@db:5432/${MM_DBNAME}?sslmode=disable&connect_timeout=10
      - MM_SQLSETTINGS_DATASOURCE=postgres://mmuser:mmuser_password@db:5432/mattermost?sslmode=disable&connect_timeout=10

      # in case your config is not in default location
      #- MM_CONFIG=/mattermost/config/config.json

  web:
    build: web
    ports:
      - "4000:80"
      - "4443:443"
    read_only: true
    restart: unless-stopped
    volumes:
      # This directory must have cert files if you want to enable SSL
      - ./volumes/web/cert:/cert:ro
      - /etc/localtime:/etc/localtime:ro
    cap_drop:
      - ALL

I changed the ports in the “web”-part to 4000:80 and 4443:443 as the standard ports are already used by other applications.

When I now deploy the docker-compose via “docker-compose up -d” everything starts.

But, when I look into the logs, there are some failiures. And I can’t connect to the Mattermost-Installation.

Here are the logs:

So, I can’t connect via Server-IP and any port variation (8000, 4000, 4443) and I can’t connect via subdomain.domain.de which I have configured to point to Server-IP plus Ports (already tried all of the written before).

Is anybody able to help me to get this thing to work? :slight_smile: This would be awesome! Thank you and have a nice weekend!

Greetings from the Black Forest in Germany

Hello @Seelenkontrast! The post you’re referencing has been replaced with GitHub - mattermost/docker: Redesigned mattermost-docker. We’re in the process of updating that post with the new information.

Would you be open to taking a look at the repo and seeing if it helps resolve your problem? :slight_smile:

Yes it totally fixed my problem. It went through with the new docker-compose, I just used the old one from this forum. The new one worked!
