“docker-compose up” fails with error

I want to work on a project, but I need to use docker for running the app, but the docker-compose up command fails with this error:

System error: exec: "./wait_to_start": stat ./wait_to_start:
no such file or directory

The wait_to_start command is an executable python script in the subfolder backend/.

    Can I debug it with details, or login with SSH and check the files on the virtual machine? I’m too unexperienced with Docker…

    You can either set the “workdir” metadata to make sure you are in the right place when you start a container or simply call /backend/wait_to_start instead of ./wait_to_start so you remove the need to be in the proper directory.

    Do debug with docker-compose I would do this:

    docker-compose run --entrypoint bash <servicename>

    That should give you a prompt and let you inspect the file and working directory, so see what’s wrong.

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
