Issues Running Behind Traefik


#1

Hi all,

I’m just getting started with Pydio Cells, and it looks exactly like what I want. I am installing on Docker swarm with services for Traefik, MariaDB, and Cells.
Everything seems to start ok, but it’s a bit of a painful process, and I’m wondering if there’s something I’m missing. If this is too long, I apologize: my main questions are at the bottom.

Here’s my current process:

  1. I make a configuration change in my cells-compose.yml (e.g. add a volume I want to share)
  2. I run docker stack deploy -c cells-compose.yml cells
  3. I then visit my external domain, https://files.example.com
  4. It walks me through the installer (every time, even if I did this last time I made a config change)
  5. It then dumps me on the login page which hangs because of cross-domain errors
  6. I then use Portainer to connect to the Cells container (/bin/sh)
  7. I use vi /root/.config/pydio/cells/pydio.json, and change

"url": "http://cells:8080"

to

"url": "https://files.example.com"

From there, I can log in, and everything works as I’d expect (apart from NFS shares, but I’ll post a separate question about that).

If it helps, my Docker compose file, cells-compose.yml:

version: '3.7'
services:

  cells:
    image: pydio/cells:latest
    volumes: 
      - cells-static:/root/.config/pydio/cells/static/pydio
      - cells-data:/root/.config/pydio/cells/data
      - cells-nas-media:/home/media/nfs/video
    environment:
      CELLS_BIND: '0.0.0.0:8080'
      CELLS_EXTERNAL: 'cells:8080'
      CELLS_NO_SSL: '1'
    networks:
      - webgateway
    deploy:
        labels:
          traefik.enable: 'true'
          traefik.backend: 'cells'
          traefik.docker.network: 'webgateway'
          traefik.frontend.passHostHeader: 'true'
          traefik.frontend.rule: 'Host:files.example.com'
          traefik.port: '8080'

networks:
  webgateway:
    external: true
volumes:
  cells-static:
  cells-data:
  cells-nas-media:
    driver: nfs
    driver_opts:
      share: gromit:/raid0/data/_NAS_NFS_Exports_/files

So my questions are:

  • Why do I get forced through the install process every time I do docker stack deploy, even though when I finally get logged into the front-end, everything else seems to be as I left it?
  • Is there any way I can avoid editing pydio.json?

Thanks for any insight!
