I'm installing Gitlab on my server using docker-compose based on Docker Docs. My SSH port is not the default one (22) and I have changed it to something else like 2228. So the YML file became like this:

web:
  image: 'gitlab/gitlab-ce:latest'
  restart: always
  hostname: 'gitlab.mydomain.com'
  environment:
    GITLAB_OMNIBUS_CONFIG: |
      external_url 'https://gitlab.mydomain.com'
      gitlab_rails['gitlab_shell_ssh_port'] = 2228
  ports:
    - '80:80'
    - '443:443'
    - '2228:22'
  volumes:
    - '/srv/gitlab/config:/etc/gitlab'
    - '/srv/gitlab/logs:/var/log/gitlab'
    - '/srv/gitlab/data:/var/opt/gitlab'

When I run the docker-compose up -d, I receive this result and errors:

Starting docker_web_1 ...

I'm new in Docker and docker-compose, but I did everything as it is written in the official documentation. May you help me plesae to solve this issue?

    listen tcp 0.0.0.0:443: bind: address already in use It seems that the 443 port on your system is not available. Please check whether this port is available before starting these docker images or choose another port.

  • why would this prevent building the image? I can see that it would impact running a container. Sep 24 '20 at 19:56

In the error message you presented your system is reporting port 443 is already in use. You need to confirm which ports you have in use for other services.

listen tcp 0.0.0.0:443: bind: address already in use

For what it is worth I recommend you use a nginx reverse proxy. Please reference https://stackoverflow.com/questions/46195852/how-to-run-gitlab-in-docker-container-with-nginx-proxy-over-ssl-with-letsencrypt for further details.
