Accessing Portainer

I have installed Portainer via dietpi-software but cannot connect to it.

The container logs show that…

2021/04/07 05:49:10 No administrator account was created after 5 min. Shutting down the Portainer instance for security reasons.
2021/04/07 05:49:11 server: Reverse tunnelling enabled
2021/04/07 05:49:11 server: Fingerprint 11:e6:31:16:4d:cd:22:8d:ea:0f:1b:8a:5a:c2:b9:cd
2021/04/07 05:49:11 server: Listening on
2021/04/07 05:49:11 Starting Portainer 2.1.1 on :9000
2021/04/07 05:49:11 [DEBUG] [chisel, monitoring] [check_interval_seconds: 10.000000] [message: starting tunnel management process]

Going to IP:8000 get no response.

Have I missed something?

Should the installer create the admin account/password?


Portainer webgui is on port 9000

DietPi will install Portainer on port 9002 and not 9000. See our online docs

Joulinar Thanks. That was what I’m missing.

I’d not dug into the docs - RTFM :cry:

it’s always worth taking a look :wink:

Hi DietPi folks. First post here (getting up to speed on this ecosystem, great so far). In following the instructions @ , I was also confused as there’s no mention of adjusting startup config.

Generally, should installs from the dietpi-software tool work out of the box? Or should I expect to tinker, such as adding the -v “/var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock” to Portainer’s container startup options

Portainer will work out if the box. On first login you will be ask by portainer how to connect to docker. Just select local socket and you are done.

Aja! It does work. Just needed to click that little connect button and ignore the red text. Thank you for the quick response.
