Am I doing something wrong? If so could someone point me to some up to date documentation on how to run DGraph? Thanks!

Hey @cyberpwnn, welcome!

Please read this announcement

Cool, thanks for the quick reply. Could you point me to some documentation on how to setup DGraph with docker windows then? The documentation had me go with the dgraph exe route :stuck_out_tongue:

You can just spin up a standalone container
