Community server container keep restarting

Hello, I’m trying to install workspace without mail server by following this guide.
What I do is:

wget https://download.onlyoffice.com/install/workspace-install.sh

and

bash workspace-install.sh -ims false

After installation, community server runs for a while and web can be accessed. But it keep restarting after that. I try to restart it by docker restart *ID*, it still keep restarting after running for a while.
My environment:
I install it in a virtual machine. Host: arch linux with Virtualbox 6.1.30
VM: Debian GNU/Linux 11 (bullseye) with 2 cores, 8192MB memory and 60GB disk
Community Server/Control Panel version: 11.5.4.1582/3.0.2.395(I learn that from docker ps)
Type of installation of Workspace: docker 20.10.11
Browser version: Firefox 95.0

Here’s my docker ps if it helps:

root@10:~# docker ps

Thanks for any help.

Hello @apl
Please provide us with additional information:

  1. Community server logs folder. It’s located here: /app/onlyoffice/CommunityServer/logs/
  2. Community server container logs. Please run docker logs container_ID and provide us with result.
  3. Go to the host and run df -h. Please show us the result.

Hello, @Alexandre

  1. Here’s my logs folder:

Hello apl.

Please clarify if no other apps are installed on the server. It’s necessary to avoid dependency and port conflict.

In the container logs I see such entries: System has not been booted with systemd as init system (PID 1). Can't operate.

It seems that something went wrong. Please try to reinstall the containers:

  1. Make a snapshot/backup of the whole server in its current state.

  2. Run docker rm -f $(docker ps -aq)

  3. Launch the installation script again bash workspace-install.sh -ims false

  4. Check if the portal is running and let us know the result.

Hello, @Alexandre
I started a brand new virtual machine for onlyoffice and there is no more softwares installed other than some basic services, say ssh, net-tools and docker, etc., thus it doesn’t seem to be the problem of port occupying. I’m not sure which ports onlyoffice needs, here is netstat -an. And docker ps after reinstallation:

root@10:~# docker ps

PS: Another small suggestion, the script complains there is no enough space when I reinstall workspace, but actually it doesn’t need to download the large images again.

We noticed that you are using Debian 11. I checked the information about Debian and unfortunately Debian 11 is not supported at the moment (internal bug number - 53124). The issue is mostly related to systemd which is not supported by the OS. So try to use Debian 10 which has been tested and works. We will add support for this operating system, but I cannot provide you with timeframes at the moment.

Alright. Hope it to be fixed soon. Thanks for help.

We wait :slight_smile:

Добрый день!
Поздравляю с небольшим юбилеем - о проблеме известно 2 месяца!

Ребята, вы делаете офигенный продукт и прислушиваетесь к идеям и критике (знаю на опыте), - это круто!
Я разворачиваю вас на новом месте каждый раз при смене работы, в 2 из 4 случаев прошел переход на платную версию. Сейчас хочу развернуть вас на новом месте и буксую почти месяц. Весия хоста определена - Дебиан 11, другого не будет, но ОО не встает ни с Докером, ни без. Еще чуть-чуть и мне стукнут по рукам и скажут - пользуйся битриксом. Решите, пожалуйста, проблему!

@lordalexnight Package installation is fixed. Please check it out

Package installation on Debian 11 is fixed.
Thanks!

Now we are waiting for the docker :slight_smile:

As for docker (Workspace, Debian 11), we are planning to fix it with Community server v.12 release. It should be in April.

Update: We just fixed docker installation on Debian 11. Please check it out.
