Docker – port prevents listening
- I am using Docker for Mac 1.12.0-rc2-beta17 with the “native” docker machine
I have a container, with xdebug installed, exposing port 9000 and mapping it to the port 9000:
- Spring boot app not work on AWS
- building Apache with cosign filter and wsgi for django project inside a docker container
- Docker environmental variables as calculated parameters
- Docker Deamon on Debian 7 inappropriate ioctl for device
- permission error on executing docker run
- Docker and single python file
$ docker ps CONTAINER ID IMAGE COMMAND CREATED STATUS PORTS NAMES 6950c2a2b05d app "/usr/bin/supervisord" 9 minutes ago Up 9 minutes 0.0.0.0:80->80/tcp, 0.0.0.0:443->443/tcp, 0.0.0.0:9000->9000/tcp, 0.0.0.0:2222->22/tcp app_1
When I’m trying to use PhpStorm to listen to the port 9000 for debug connections, I’m getting an error “Cannot listen: port 9000 is busy”.
I must precise that I’m a newbie in networks..

It dependent how you want to connect via Xdebug
xdebug.remote_connect_back=1 said that PHP will wait until a HTTP request with GET parameter
XDEBUG_SESSION_START=<IDE_key>. Then will PHP within the server try to connect back via port 9000 where your PHPStorm is listing. Classic don’t call us, we will call you situation.
Now your situation with docker say simple, your container is responsible for port 9000. So PHP will get a loopback and PHPStorm isn’t able to use port 9000 because its already used by your docker container.
So skip the assignment of port 9000 to docker, that will fix this situation.
Firstly check your container logs to debug:
docker logs 6950c2a2b05d
docker logs app_1
-f flags for
docker logs -f app_1
Two things I discovered:
- There is no need to expose the port 9000 on a container with xdebug (that seems rather counter-intuitive for me, as I do not exactly understand how my IDE connects to xdebug then).
- I was able to use xdebug using the workaround described in https://forums.docker.com/t/ip-address-for-xdebug/10460/4.
