Hi there,

Your Metabase service is running as a Docker container rather than a Systemd service.

There is no need to use the service command, instead, you could restart the container itself with:

docker restart container_id_here

For more information on how to use Docker I could suggest this free eBook here:

Let me know if you have any questions!

Hi @5ac3e39f363b-4f2d-bedd-2edde6,

If I’m not mistaken the metabase service would be inside the Metabase container(Docker). I might be isn’t that the purpose of docker in the first place? What you can try is to enter your docker container and see if the service is running there.
