I tried with a fresh approach. Just mapping default port for wbeui. (port 80 . I mean HTTP://localhost), Still I only get a blank page. In the docker dashboard shows db and webapi containers starting not running.
Could please advise me.

Hi @senaka

Generally, we recommend running the metasfresh server docker installation on a Linux Server ( Ubuntu Server works pretty well ).

The permission error in Windows for the postgres database container looks like a very common issue:

If you really want to run the server in Windows 10 Linux Subsystem, I suggest checking out the issues (and solutions) in the links above.

Alternatively you could just create a Virtualbox machine on your Windows environment with a Ubuntu Server 20.04 installation and try to deploy metasfresh that way (please note the hardware requirements here when setting up the virtual machine: https://docs.metasfresh.org/installation_collection/EN/How_do_I_setup_the_metasfresh_stack_using_Docker.html )

Anyway, please let us know which approach you chose and if you try the Windows 10 docker installation and managed to solve it, consider sharing your solution here so others may find your answer.

Hi Julian,
Thank you for your reply. I will first try out on Ubuntu.
If I succeed in Windows 10, definitely share here.
