Hey DaromerAs i said many times now it will not start unless it can connect to Influxdb and your Mosquitto brooker. If it ant it will die directly. So please once again check the logs and see whats going on and why it cant connect.
Yes, this i understand. and it makes sense.
however, the issue i have is.
I cant start the container, to access the config ini file, to change the settings, so that it can connect to influx and mqtt.
looking at the portainer logs, it shows similar errors to above about not been able to parse auth credentials. it also mentions as the last entry that it cant connect to the mqtt server.
and this i understand, because the credentails havent been entered as its a fresh install (well, as far as i can tell it is. i have removed the container, the volume and the images, and started it from scratch several times) but as i said i cant keep it running to access the config file to set the credentails.
