I’m quite new to
I followed the instructions here to install and run
syncthing in a
That worked great, but when I restarted the PC it auto-started the
syncthing docker container, but without the extra settings in the .sh file (no volumes, no other settings I think) - it was like it was running the container with only the default settings - wouldn’t sync with any other devices, nothing other than the default share, etc.
When I tried to run syncthing from the
syncthing_run.sh script, it complained that there was already a docker container running with the name
syncthing and I needed to delete or rename the container in order to run with that name.
I was able to get it running again with all the settings by doing
sudo docker stop syncthing to stop the already-running container, then removing the
--name line from the script:
IDu=$(id -u $(logname)) # Saves the logged in user id in the IDu variable IDg=$(id -g $(logname)) # Saves the logged in user group in the IDg variable docker run -d \ --name syncthing \ # <------------- removed this line --hostname=syncthing-redacted \ --network=host \ -v $PWD/st-sync/:/var/syncthing/ \ -v $PWD/data/:/var/syncthing/data/ \ -v /redacted/:/var/syncthing/redacted/ \ -e TZ="Australia/Sydney" \ -e PUID=$IDu \ -e PGID=$IDg \ --restart=unless-stopped \ syncthing/syncthing:latest
It seems to be running fine now, but I think it has created a new container? When I run
sudo docker container ls -a | grep syncthing, I get:

How can I fix everything so the container will auto-run on startup, but with the correct settings from the .sh script, and the correct name of
Also, how can I remove the duplicate container, and is it safe for me to do so without losing any data?
