Docker installation does not expose ports to outside world

I’ve completed the steps for the docker install. However, I’m unable to connect to the Discourse application from the outside world or host machine. (E.g. telnet localhost 8001 fails.)

In my app.yml:

## which TCP/IP ports should this container expose?
## If you want Discourse to share a port with another webserver like Apache or nginx,
## see for details
  - "8001:80"   # http
#  - "443:443" # https

Performing ./launcher rebuild app indicates this docker command:

usr/bin/docker run -d --restart=always -e LANG=en_US.UTF-8 -e RAILS_ENV=production -e UNICORN_WORKERS=4 -e UNICORN_SIDEKIQS=1 -e RUBY_GC_MALLOC_LIMIT=40000000 -e RUBY_HEAP_MIN_SLOTS=800000 -e DISCOURSE_DB_SOCKET=/var/run/postgresql -e DISCOURSE_DB_HOST= -e DISCOURSE_DB_PORT= -e DISCOURSE_HOSTNAME=************* -e DISCOURSE_DEVELOPER_EMAILS=***************** -e DISCOURSE_SMTP_ADDRESS=************** -e DISCOURSE_SMTP_USER_NAME=******************* -e DISCOURSE_SMTP_PASSWORD=************* -e LETSENCRYPT_ACCOUNT_EMAIL=********* -h jupiter-app -e DOCKER_HOST_IP= --name app -t -v /var/discourse/shared/standalone:/shared -v /var/discourse/shared/standalone/log/var-log:/var/log local_discourse/app /sbin/boot

The docker command appears to missing any expose or port command switch, so I checked docker ps:

admin@jupiter:/var/discourse(master)$ docker ps
CONTAINER ID        IMAGE                 COMMAND             CREATED             STATUS              PORTS               NAMES
07b612f1f4fc        local_discourse/app   "/sbin/boot"        18 minutes ago      Up 13 minutes                           app

This shows there are no ports exposed?

Finally, to verify Discourse was in fact working inside the host I performed ./launcher enter app:

root@jupiter-app:/var/www/discourse# wget localhost:80
--2016-04-27 18:31:20--  http://localhost/

Any ideas? Thanks!

Are u on the latest update?


@Falco Thanks, indeed and pulling latest git fixed it. I had quickly searched forums but didn’t see anything immediately helpful. Working now!
