Redirecting from an issue I filed on the RStudio issues tracker:
I have a docker image on which I'm running RStudio Server (as well as some other things). Essential details I believe are:
- Docker is using a persistent mount of my home directory (in particular the
.rstudioconfig folder is persistent across Docker images)
- After docker image is created, a run is triggered of a
bootstrap.shscript which is where RStudio Server is started via
gdebiof a persistent
- The Docker image installs
condaR; I don't have as much control over the details of the
bootstrap.shis where GNU R and my package library are installed.
At some point in this admittedly messy setup, something happens to RStudio Server that prevents
rJava from configuring correctly & the initial instance is doomed. No amount of restarting or
R CMD javareconf can save it.
However, after the
bootstrap.sh script runs, if I
rstudio-server stop and then restart, the problem goes away.
I suspect there are some stale files being cached in my
.rstudio folder; if I could identify these and include an
rm of them in my
bootstrap.sh folder, I think all would be well.
(I could also just
rm -rf .rstudio but that would mean tossing the baby with the bathwater -- that folder also keeps my
Global Options such as visual theme)
Any ideas of what might be causing the issue? Here are the contents of that folder:

sources folder seemed pretty promising... Are internals documented somewhere where I could check what each of these objects/folders is intended for?
