    Hello, I have Ispconfig in docker on debian using

    ISPCONFIG runs but there are no error or other logs in "log" folder inside created web folders. Seems like it has no rights to write into it? Which module is responsible for writing into "log" folder? How should be chmoded? Shoudl I serach for other log somewhere to find the reason why logging is not working?

    Have you asked the creator of that docker instance if the error is in the docker? Were there any installation or setup instructions for that docker instance?

    The logs are written to /var/log/ispconfig/httpd/domain.tld/ and then mounted with a bind mount into the log folder of the site. It might be that this does not work inside Docker. I recommend that you use a normal ISPConfig installation, install a normal VM with KVM or any other Linux full virtualization system and install ISPConfig inside, the Docker images are not from ISPConfig and are not supported.

    Hi and thanks. I found a solution. If docker runs in Unraid it is neccesarry to use privileged mode unless it can´t mount some resources...

    I have had that same issue with lxc containers in unprivileged mode in the past, too. While you can configure it to allow the bind mounts, you have to do so for every website, which is an ongoing nuisance. Rather than reducing security by running in privileged mode, we increased security by switching to a qemu vm. You know, "do what @till recommended." :)
