Unable to start the owncloud docker container- Read-only file system error


When I try to start the owncloud docker container, I’m getting the following error:

/etc/owncloud.d/20-config.sh: line 39: /mnt/data/config/database.config.php: Read-only file system

It normally starts the web application, but at the moment it is keep on restarting.

root:/opt/owncloud-docker-server# docker ps

I’m using the default owncloud installation (.yml) file from the official website


Please execute

docker-compose down -v


docker-compose up -d

Let me know what happens :slight_smile:


Hello @dmitry ,

Thanks for the update. But it didn’t help me out.

I have to unmount the partition manually and then do an fsck.
After that I mounted it back and started the docker containers.


Is there any reason for the owncloud file system to get write-protected(read-only) intermittently, thereby which the owncloud docker doesn’t start.

It has occurred to me multiple times now.

Any thoughts?
