I have docker-compose file with one image (httpd) and one volume that look into ./ folder (It contains only one index.html static file). When I start my computer I launch this image with

docker-compose up

And it works, I see message

Starting mysiteloc_app_1        ... done

And can access it via localhost.

But when I wait several hours (seriously, I do nothing, for experiment I just wait 3 hours without touching keyboard or mouse) and try to use

docker-compose up

I get message

mysiteloc_redis_1 is up-to-date

But if I restart docker daemon all works nice. What the problem? Docker reference say that if i get up-to date message I changed volume or docker-compose.yml and need to rebuild, but firstly I dont changed anything, secondly why after reboot it works without rebuild?

P.S: When I write this message I realised that use httpd:latest image. Problem may be related with minor httpd updates? But then why I dont need rebuild after restarting daemon?

  • Can you clarify what your question is? Also, is your title correct? It doesn't make alot of sense.

  • My problem is that without daemon restart docker cant launch container. Title is really incorrect,I corrected it

  • Could you provide the docker-compose.yml And the corresponding dockerfiles?

After getting your site up with docker-compose up there is No practical reason for running docker-compose up again without making any changes, because the container is running.

So docker deamon informs you there is nothing New to do.

  • But I get this error even after docker-compose stop or docker-compose down command
