N8n app can't connect to server

Describe the problem/error/question

So, I have been building some workflows in the n8n app a few month ago. No wanted to get back to it, but the n8n app connect to the server. I updated to the latest version. but doesn’t work. would be too bad to loose the work I did in the workflows…

What is the error message (if any)?

Hey @pehaem,

We stopped supporting and updating the n8n desktop app last year, If using Desktop it should start up everything needed but it could be that there are now issues with it.

Once thing you could do is run n8n in a docker container which would help and you could use your existing data by running…

docker run -it --rm --name n8n -p 5678:5678 -v ~/.n8n:/home/node/.n8n docker.n8n.io/n8nio/n8n
