Engine stopped!

Hello everyone! I was trying to see if there was a way to run Docker Desktop from terminal on my MacOS machine as I do on my CentOS machine. So I went to Preferences > Docker Engine and for no reason at all I cut the configuration code (hence deleting it, but might have pasted something else, not sure) and thoughtlessly hit Apply & Restart. Now Docker Desktop does not start; it says engine stopped in the bottom left corner. I uninstalled it and re-installed it, but it didn’t fix the issue. Help!!!

Hi :slight_smile:

You can try and uninstall, and then delete the:

rm -rf ~/.docker/

directory, and then install it again

or you can try and open ~/.docker/daemon.json to see if everything looks ok

Hey thanks for the reply! I tried to delete the directory and to install it again, but it still doesn’t work… When I launch it, the GUI opens showing “Docker starting” and then it quickly changes to “Docker stopped”. More drastic measures?
