Earlier today I have been running rstudio docker containers. After struggling to login with the password I set while running the images, I tried stopping the containers in order to rerun a new one with the same name.
No running containers:
doug:~$ docker container ls CONTAINER ID IMAGE COMMAND CREATED STATUS PORTS NAMES doug:~$
However, if I navigate to localhost:8787 I am redirected to the sign in page:
I discovered this because the password that I previously used to login to the docker container was not working. I was and still am very confused. If rstudio on localhost is coming from some other process, then it would make partial sense that my regular password that I use with the container was not working.
I'm on a laptop running on Linux Ubuntu.
I have tried several different browsers and clearing cookies and storage. This login page still appears.
What could be causing this?
