Docker-compose -f /path/ up not working 😢

#1

Hello,

Maybe a dumb question :grimacing: but I cannot make it work using docker-compose -f ~/my/path/devilbox/docker-compose.yml up -d mysql, however when I cd ~/my/path/devilbox/' and then rundocker-compose up -d mysql`it works perfectly.

My docker-compose version is 1.24.0, build unknown

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you for your help.

Mauricio

This is probably due to the fact that docker-compose expects an .env file from the location where you execute it (The project directory).

You should probably also change it via --project-directory:

docker-compose \
  --project-directory ~/my/path/devilbox/ \
  -f ~/my/path/devilbox/docker-compose.yml up -d mysql

Also have a look at this project for easy startup/restart and shutdown:

Thank you, @cytopia! It works using --project-directory .

I’ll also try devilbox-cli, it looks useful.
