Unifi Controller container problem


There are a few days I can’t run the Unifi controller and I get a message:

’‘Unify controller is starting up. Please wait a moment…’'

Can anyone please help me to troubleshoot this?
Many thanks

please share your host os and version, your docker compose or run snippet, and your full docker logs (in pastebin)

You’re using an image that’s nearly 2 years old. Get your container updated to the latest version and see if you still have the same issue. Though bare in mind you may receive updates to your hardware aswell.

Thank you for your answer.

The thing is I set it up 2 years ago and I can’t remember what I did hence I haven’t tried to update it until now.

Now, I deleted the container, pulled a new image, run it but unfortunately I’m getting errors while I’m trying to enter and save the arguments.

I’m hoping to use the same configuration saved in my hard disc.
