Docker container fails

I have deployed a docker image to a basic droplet (4GB RAM). When I run the image (docker run …) it starts up and then within a minute or so it fails. This is a streamlit app. Any ideas as to why this is failing?

I would recommend checking your Docker container logs for some more information.

You could do that with the following commands:

  • First get the container ID:
docker ps -a
  • Then check the logs:
docker logs container_id_here

The logs should give you more information on why the container is crashing.

Feel free to share the logs here in case you have any questions!
