Multiple container setup problems

Hi all! After trying to figure out multisite setup but failing miserably, I ended up doing three separate containers, one for my current forum and two for the archive forums. I went with socketed, managed to get NGINX working and I even have Let’s Encrypt per these guidelines.

I gave the archive forums one unicorn, the current only one, but I’m running into a thought: can I really be doing this out of the box like this? Are all containers running redis & sidekiq in a way that messes it up royally? Or should I somehow link the two archive containers to the first one and so on? Because now after restore I’m getting this message:

Oops
The software powering this discussion forum encountered an unexpected problem. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Detailed information about the error was logged, and an automatic notification generated. We’ll take a look at it.

No further action is necessary. However, if the error condition persists, you can provide additional detail, including steps to reproduce the error, by posting a discussion topic in the site’s feedback category.

I understood from the multisite topic that there should be two separate containers when doing multisite, but I never quite understood what is meant by data and web containers. Does this mean that data containers is the only one using sql and web redies & sidekiq or what?

I’m a quick learner and a bit learned when it comes to this stuff, but can’t really say I’m a sysadmin.

The recommendation is that you have one container with redis and Postgres and a second with the web server. If you have two web containers then you’ll need to have another external nginx reverse proxying to the web containers. It’ll be easier to have a single multisite server.

At least two of the forums work all right…
