How to run Lychee server on a windows 10 computer


#21

I’m rocking Arch with KDE plasma. Had a few challenges, but most of it got sorted, so it’s working good now.
My goal was to reinstall from scratch on the nvme drive after ironing out the bumps, but not sure I remember everything I did now… :thinking:

Well, I suspect you’re just overcomplicating things in your brain as you’re still getting your head around docker. Don’t be too hard on yourself.


#23

My knowledge of docker was insufficient to do the relatively simple task of run Lyche server on my home workstation. I do appreciate the tips that got me to learn what I need @chbmb :grinning:


#24

So you up and running now?


#25

Not yet - although I still care to do it. As I learned more about creating Docker images, running them in containers, using “bridge networks” to facilitate the communications between Lychee “parts” (@aptalca suggests using “named containers” to establish the needed connection between Lychee and its database), I would like to propose a deal:

I will create a detailed document on how to best create and manage a Lychee instance on Windows 10 and publish it at the proper place - and in return, I would like some minor guidance (@chbmb seems like a knowledgeable “mentor” for this task).


#26

Ask for help when you need it here by all means, not sure I’m the most knowledgeable around, but we can try and muddle through.

Thanks @chbmb - let me start with a more generic question: How to create a Linux image (say Ubuntu), that has the needed utilities like wget, curl, etc, “baked in”? Interactively (running inside that ubuntu shell as a root, I would do this as

apt-get install wget curl

I would prefer to use Dockerfile like this:

FROM ubuntu:16.04
RUN apt-get update
RUN apt-get install curl wget

The problem with this is that the RUN apt-get install curl wget fails when invoked from Dockerfile as shown below:

Do you want to continue? [Y/n] Abort.
The command '/bin/sh -c apt-get install curl wget' returned a non-zero code: 1

Since this command runs in the background, the question Do you want to continue? [Y/n] causes the execution to abort.

There ought to be a way to run such Dockerfile with some way of providing this answer - but after hours of searching, I am still searching :disappointed_relieved:

Self-answered:

RUN apt-get install -y curl wget
