I’m trying to follow the getting started tutorial, but I can’t manage to start the prefect server in docker. I’m new to docker and trying to get it to work on my macbook. I followed and then tried This results in this error: FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: ‘ip’: ‘ip’ Any ideas what I might be doing wrong?

Hi @Niclas Roos, the section of the docs you’re linking to is generally unnecessary for most work unless you need to build a custom Prefect build off a base image. It’s uncommon and in fact I’m actually unsure of what would cause that error offhand 🙂 However, to run the server in Docker, all you need to run is
prefect server start
as described here. (You may need to run
prefect backend server
as well if its your first time running Prefect!)

Thanks. Ah, I thought that I should run that command from inside the docker.
