Reminder: Make Docker trust certificates

According to play-with-docker.com you can trust a self-signed cert by doing the following: If you are running the registry locally, be sure to use your host name as the CN.To get the docker daemon to trust the certificate, copy the domain.crt file. Make sure to restart the docker daemon. The /dev/null part is to avoid the output… Continue Reading Reminder: Make Docker trust certificates

Upgrading Gitlab

Gitlab follows semantiv versioning. It even does not allow you to upgrade from a non-latest minor version to a new major version. Meaning: 10.1 -> 11.4 is now allowed if there is a 10.8 version. Thus you need to upgrade in steps: 10.1 -> 10.8 -> 11.4 (for example). Procedure: # Create a backup (Don’t… Continue Reading Upgrading Gitlab

Docker: Symlink your log files to stdout and stderr!

When you’re in a Docker container, ideally you don’t want to have to enter the container in order to read log files. It’d be best to have everything on stdout and stderr of your container so Docker picks them up automatically and thus delivers it to any logging driver you attach. This is thankfully easily… Continue Reading Docker: Symlink your log files to stdout and stderr!

Getting original client IP from a request in Docker Swarm – Or the issue with issue #25526

Puh…this is a big one… A client contacted me saying the webserver’s logs on one of our swarm stacks reports the same IP address for any request and it’s not one of any of the clients used: – 10.255.0.2 [18/Oct/2018:13:38:43 +0000] “GET / HTTP/1.0” 401 113 “HTTP-Monitor/1.1” 1 This is an issue as we require… Continue Reading Getting original client IP from a request in Docker Swarm – Or the issue with issue #25526

Docker – Add trusted root ca to local docker-machine swarm

As one might want when using a custom Docker registry with a cert signed by a custom root ca. As finding the answer to this question has proven somewhat complicated, I’ll note my approach here for future reference (excerpt): Basically, copy pem (Base64 encoded) versions of your CA trust chain into /var/lib/boot2docker/certs/. You can’t use… Continue Reading Docker – Add trusted root ca to local docker-machine swarm
