Startup Error Endless loop

I have activated a workflow that has an error in it.

N8N now crashes on startup and because it’s on docker, it keeps crashing in an endless loop.

I can see in the output of the server, which workflow fails.

Attached is the lower half of the error message.

After this the service will not come up again.

is there a way to deactivate the workflow via console or manipulate the settings somehow?



I logged into the persistancy db (in my case sqlite) and set the active-flag to false on the workflow.

update workflow_entity set active=0 where id=xxx;

documenting here for other users.
