Nginx php-fpm failed to open stream permission denied


(Codinglimo) #1

I use the following Dochkerfile and config files to create my nginx and php-fpm container.


FROM richarvey/nginx-php-fpm
RUN php5enmod mcrypt

RUN rm -f /etc/nginx/sites-available/default.conf
RUN rm -f /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/*

After I start my container with the following docker run everything works fine (my files in mycontainerfiles show correctly in my browser):

docker run --name mycontainer -p 32770:80 -v /Users/sja/Sites/mycontainerfiles:/usr/share/nginx/html --link=mycontainer_db:db nginx-php-fpm-magento

Now I edit some crontab on my container and restart it with docker stop and docker start.

After that my browser show me “ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED” Error when I call

With “docker logs mycontainer” I become the following error lines:

sed: -e expression #1, char 18: unknown option to `s'
sed: -e expression #1, char 18: unknown option to `s'
sed: -e expression #1, char 18: unknown option to `s'
sed: -e expression #1, char 18: unknown option to `s'
sed: can't read /usr/share/nginx/html/magento/app/code/core/Mage/XmlConnect/Block/Catalog/Product/sedwFWhs9: Permission denied
sed: can't read /usr/share/nginx/html/magento/lib/Varien/Io/sedBAAtQM: Permission denied

Also my vbox task is very busy

I suspect that this is not a docker problem but rather some misconfiguration with my nginx and php-fpm? Some other container with apache2 and php runs without any abnormality.

Update: After a long time of waiting my container is suddenly available and my vbox process is sleeping
