Unable To Install via Docker
Hey there! I have been following the steps in https://github.com/loomio/loomio-deploy/blob/master/README.md
Though I'm running across a problem. When I get to the Initialize the database step, I am getting this error:
I double checked and I did not miss a step listed.

I agree. A better walkthrough would be appreciated, from someone who usually installs from source Docker is rather confusing lol.
The current walkthrough looked like it had a lot of potential, looked simple and easy to install. Until this :p

For future readers: It seems Robert is aware of the situation and is working on fixing it (https://www.loomio.org/d/bULMC9r4/struggling-with-docker-is-there-another-way-?membership_token=hXkHdVSARJmDEMADeN7UbVNc&utm_campaign=discussion_mailer&utm_medium=email&utm_source=new_comment)

Hi guys !
I think I can help you for your problem @brendanbutler
When you run Loomio for the first time, you need to initialize the database with the following command
docker-compose up -d db
It runs just the database docker container
docker exec -ti loomio-db su - postgres -c 'createdb loomio_production'
It creates the "loomio_production" database in PostgreSQL database
docker-compose run app rake db:setup
It initialize all you need in the database for make loomio works
After that (and only after these 3 operations), you can run all the containers
docker-compose up -d
Then you need to wait 5/10min that loomio-app finish the installation. If you try to get your page just after running the containers, you will have a 500 error. It's in the README of loomio-deploy
Hope it helps :)
PS: sry for my poor english héhé :D

same here. it cannot work, because at that time there is no container running. So i tried docker-compose up -d first and then run the createdb command. I ended up with the services running but the server only produces a 500 error. Problem not solved. :slight_frown:
A real walkthru would be great to have.
