Issue Summary

Got the following error running “docker-compose up -d”
Error: Couldn’t connect to the Docker daemon at http+docker://localhost - is it running?
If it’s a non-standard location, specify the URL with the DOCKER_HOST environment variable.

Technical details:

  • Redash Version:5.0.2
  • Browser/OS:Chrome
  • How did you install Redash: : I used AMI: [ami-0c654c3ab463d22f6] on us-east-1. Then I completed the initial setup, and I was able to user the system. I then edited the env file, which is as following:

PYTHONUNBUFFERED=0
REDASH_LOG_LEVEL=INFO
REDASH_REDIS_URL=redis://redis:6379/0
POSTGRES_PASSWORD=xxxx
REDASH_COOKIE_SECRET=xxxx
REDASH_DATABASE_URL=xxxx

export REDASH_MAIL_SERVER=“email-smtp.us-east-1.amazonaws.com” # default: localhost
export REDASH_MAIL_PORT=“587” # default: 25
export REDASH_MAIL_USE_TLS=“True” # default: False
export REDASH_MAIL_USE_SSL=“False” # default: False
export REDASH_MAIL_USERNAME=“xxxx” # default: None
export REDASH_MAIL_PASSWORD=“xxxx” # default: None
export REDASH_MAIL_DEFAULT_SENDER=“xxxx” # Email address to send from
export REDASH_HOST=“http://xxxx

Then I ssh into the instance, type in “docker-compose up -d”, got the following
Error: Couldn’t connect to the Docker daemon at http+docker://localhost - is it running?
If it’s a non-standard location, specify the URL with the DOCKER_HOST environment variable.

I don’t know much about docker. Please advise.
Appreciate the help.

  1. In the Docker Compose env file you don’t need to prefix the values with export nor use quotes.
  2. To run Docker commands, try prefixing them with sudo. (i.e. sudo docker-compose up -d).
