I have setup a private registry following the instructions at: https://docs.docker.com/registry/deploying/ and everything worked wonderfully until I tried to use basic authentication, again following the instructions. I added the:
-e “REGISTRY_AUTH_HTPASSWD_REALM=Registry Realm” \
to my run command and now the container is continually restarting. I looked the logfile which produced voluminous output, but the one line I found of interest was:
panic: unable to configure authorization (htpasswd): “path” must be set for htpasswd access controller
unfortunately I’m not sure exactly what it means. Where/how to set the “path”? Am I following an outdated set of instructions? I see other articles talking about the new token authorization, but no clear how to. I read that clients should contact the registry first and get an “HTTP/1.1 401 Unauthorized” response but when I try that using the command:
curl -v https://domain.net:5000/v2 -k -IL
I get: “HTTP/1.1 200 OK”. I’m not sure what to do next. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
