Can't get docker container to work (unRaid)

In spite of having n8n on my older unRaid server, I am completely unable to get it running on a fresh install of unRaid 6.12.8. The WebUI gives me: This site can’t be reached

I have tried various combinations of:

  • Repository: n8nio/n8n:1.29.1
  • environment variable N8N_SECURE_COOKIE: false
  • N8N_EDITOR_BASE_URL: various
  • changing the owner of appdata/n8n

Suggestions are welcomed.

It looks like your topic is missing some important information. Could you provide the following if applicable.

  • n8n version:
  • Database (default: SQLite):
  • n8n EXECUTIONS_PROCESS setting (default: own, main):
  • Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app):
  • Operating system:

Hey @RichardC,

Sadly we don’t officially support unRaid so we will need to rely on your experience and knowledge for some of this. When you have the container running have you checked the output of the container to make sure it has started ok and isn’t showing any errors?

Your question caused me to try again and I’ve learned I need to manually set permissions on /appdata/n8n to RW for all users.

FWIW, Not sure how I ended up with these, but I use Cloudflare tunnels and have added the following to the unRaid n8n template:

Label: swag Value: enable
Variable: N8N_EDITOR_BASE_URL Value: https://n8n.example.com

Cheers, Richard
