Missing panel for PHP configuration in latest pydio cells docker version [Solved]


#1

I am trying to install Pydio cells using docker (specifically docker compose).
I created a Pydio Cells docker container, a database container, and a phcontainer. However, when I try to install Pydio cells, the panel called “PHP-FPM Detection” is not present (The one that appears in the screenshot here: https://github.com/pydio/cells/issues/2 ). I see the “Database connection” and then the “PHP-FPM Detection” directly.

If I go on with the installation, Pydio Cells does not start because it cannot find the frontend.

Does anyone how can I configure the docker container to find PHP-FPM?

Thank you!

Hi,
if you are using docker compose you can actually just put the name of the php-fpm container and the port and it should be detected, could you try with that?


#3

Thank you for your answer.

Yes, I will try that, but where should I put the container and the port? I don’t have the “PHP-FPM Detection” panel. Should it be in the docker compose file?

I am using this docker image: https://hub.docker.com/r/pydio/cells/

ooops,
i forgot to tell you but our latest container is the new cells with only go,
there is no more php.


#5

Thank you once again for your quick support.

But then, what is this container for: https://hub.docker.com/r/pydio/cells-php-fpm/ ?

I followed the instruction there and my docker-compose file looks like this (abridged):

pydiodb:

container_name: pydiodb

image: mariadb:10.3

restart: always

environment:

  • MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=

  • MYSQL_DATABASE=cells

  • MYSQL_USER=pydio

  • MYSQL_PASSWORD=

command:

  • mysqld

  • –character-set-server=utf8mb4

  • –collation-server=utf8mb4_unicode_ci

volumes:

  • /opt/appdata/pydiodb:/var/lib/mysql

pydiophp:

container_name: pydiophp

image: pydio/cells-php-fpm:1.0.0

restart: always

volumes:

  • /opt/appdata/pydio/:/root/.config/pydio/

pydiocells:

container_name: pydiocells

image: pydio/cells:1.2.0

restart: always

volumes:

  • /opt/appdata/pydio/:/root/.config/pydio/

environment:

  • TZ=Europe/Berlin

  • CELLS_BIND=:8080

  • CELLS_EXTERNAL=

  • CELLS_NO_SSL=1

labels:

  • traefik.enable=true

  • traefik.backend=pydiocells

  • traefik.frontend.rule=Host:

  • traefik.port=8080

expose:

  • 8080

depends_on:

  • pydiodb

  • pydiophp

The setup goes perfectly, but at the end when I try to start Pydio Cells it hangs at the ‘Login’ screen and the log tells me that the frontend was not found.

Maybe the error is not related to PHP?

Thank you so much for your help. The support for Pydio looks superb!

#6

for these values you need something like <ip>:<port> or <domain name>:<port>, the php-fpm is useless starting with pydio cells 1.2.0 php is gone and with the latest tag you should get 1.2.1, for traefik i’m not really familiar with it.

This must be a configuration error.


#7

Thanks I will try updating the version and changing the version to 1.2.1

Valerio


#8

what you could do if it still does not work is,
docker logs <the cells container> and then refresh the front so that i have an idea about the error.


#9

Uhm, I get the same error discussed here:

“error”: “cannot create storage without CA URL”

Thank you so much for all your help


#10

If I try the workaround described in the issue report, I end up with the following error:

“error”: “Invalid database url”

This is strange, because if the url of the database was wrong, shouldn’t the database setup fail during installation?

#11

Here is the complete last part of my docker-compose logs

Thanks again for your help!

Hi,
there is this post with a configuration that seems to be working, take a look and see if you have something missing.


#13

@zayn Thank you so much for helping me trying to get Pydio to run

With the setup in your link, I still get the following error:

Could not run 	{"error": "Invalid database url"}

At this point, I am starting to think that it is not a Traefik problem, but a database configuration one.

  • The first thing is that I use mariadb, while the link uses mysql. This could be the problem. But this other person also uses mariadb and it works for him: https://gist.github.com/bschulz87/fc1f6968ea97b1c034bfa4811b35e17d

  • Second, I don’t create any database before starting. Is this ok?

  • Third, when I configure pydio, I use: TCP / Hostname: pydiodb (Like this, no http:/) / Port 3306 / Database name: cells / Database User: root / Database Password: <MY SQL ROOT PASSWORD> . Does this look ok to you? The panel accepts my entries and goes forward, so I thought it was ok

Thanks again, I am really keen to get this to run!

Valerio


#14

Yes Cells will create automatically a database if there is none (using the database name that you will give),

if you have launched the database in a docker compose so yes, just the name of the container pydiodbshould be good (if you want to be sure you can put the <ip serv where the container runs> (assuming that the port 3306 is exposed, as long as there is no error it means that pydio could connect to the database and create the tables,(you can make sure if you want by looking at the database)

so to resume all of the above, it could either be that there was an issue whne connecting to the db(if you have another db or one installed on your server try with it and if it works then we know where to look).


#15

Thanks! Is it enough to expose it, right, like so?

expose:
  - 3306

Not to map it to the host, like so, right?

ports:
  - 3306

#16

In a docker compose you can do it like this

    ports:

Uhm, I discovered that the url error was caused by the fact that my database passwords contains symbols. Strange! Anyway, after I started to use an alphanumeric only password, the error disappeared.

However. pydio cells still does not start. It is stil stuck on the ‘loading’ page, but with no errors. I tested it with Firefox and Chrome

Thank you again!
