Restart/start portainer

  • So I stopped my portainer container from the portainer web UI by mistake.


    Trying to start it by SSH-ing into OMV and running "docker run portainer/portainer-ce" shows that the container is running but I can't connect to it on its port.


    How do you start portainer correctly if you accidentally stopped it?

  • docker restart container_name


    You can also view the log for the container with docker logs -f container_name (Control + c will close the log once it's at the end)


    If it doesnt start, post the log and see if maybe someone can help.

    Air Conditioners are a lot like PC's... They work great until you open Windows.


  • wow, this seems like a really bad solution to what seems like a fairly easy problem to occur.


    it just happened to me earlier today - i simply stopped my portainer container from the portainer interface and blammo - game over.


    no easy recovery.


    luckily, i was able to follow the suggestion of looking in the log to find the container id, and restart it, but i suspect 95 out of 100 users would not be able to do that.


    couldn't there be something built on to the portainer component of omv-extras to do that? that would be SO much easier and risk-free (as far as i know).

  • The obvious solution to prevent this kind of mistake is to hide the portainer container in the portainer UI.


    You are not working as admin all the time, do you?
