Unable to get Dgraph to run using Docker or local installation

I Want to Do

My company is looking to move from Neo4j to an alternative graph database for our internal systems, as well as client systems. We’ve tried testing Dgraph via Docker, as well as locally, however, both attempts have failed.

What I Did

Following the Dgraph documentation, we used the official Dgraph image:

docker pull dgraph/dgraph:latest

We then tried the following command:

docker run --rm -it -p 8080:8080 -p 9080:9080 -p 8000:8000 -v ~/dgraph:/dgraph dgraph/standalone:v20.11

This simply returns:

Unable to find image 'dgraph/standalone:v20.11' locally
docker: Error response from daemon: manifest for dgraph/standalone:v20.11 not found: manifest unknown: manifest unknown.

We then tried:

docker run --rm -it -p 8080:8080 -p 9080:9080 -p 8000:8000 -v ~/dgraph:/dgraph dgraph/standalone:latest

But this does not work and offers only a broken link to what might be the problem (manifest related issue).

We then tried to install Dgraph locally with the following command:

curl https://get.dgraph.io -sSf | bash

This appeared to work, however, in referencing additional installation guides it appeared the Dgraph documentation was/is lacking. We followed the steps in the following guide, however, the dgraph.service fails and provides almost no information on how to resovle the issue:

The following is from journalctl.

We are hoping someone can assist us with this as we have heard good things about Dgraph, however, our experience thus far has been quite bad.

For reference, we are attempting to install Dgraph on Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS.

Thank you,

Dan

There’s no tag v20.11 - it is missing the third value in the tag.
e.g: v20.11.0

You might have old files in the path ~/dgraph - remove everything from that folder and try again.

Thank you for your response. You may want to update your documentation to accurately reflect the version number as what I posted comes directly from your getting started guide:

https://dgraph.io/docs/get-started/

We having nothing installed - there is nothing to delete. The manifest error is coming from the Docker image!

We tried v20.11.0 and the image was found, however, the same manifest error persists.

2021/01/20 21:43:56 manifest has unsupported version: 7 (we support 8).

Error while creating badger KV posting store

Sorry, but I’m 100% sure that there is remaining files there - this type of error only happen in that situation. Maybe from other tries. Cleanup the path or the volume used and you are good to go.

Files where?! All we did was download the Docker image and run it!?

Could you kindly provide a little more helpful information?

I can’t, only you could provide the context of what is happening. I’m just throwing dices from my own experiences.

Anyway, you can just prune the Docker.

docker stop $(docker ps -a -q)

docker rm $(docker ps -a -q)

docker volume ls

docker volume rm myDockerCompose
# or
docker volume rm ${name_of_yourCOmpose}

We removed all Docker volumes. There are none on this system. The following error still occurs.

I’m not sure what else we can do on our end, perhaps your docker image is corrupt?

No chance. Otherwise, hundreds of users would be complaining. Also our battery of automatic tests.

Please, check again. Or remove the -v from your docker command.

e.g

docker run --rm -it -p 8080:8080 -p 9080:9080 -p 8000:8000 dgraph/standalone:v20.11.0

Removing the -v solved the issue and it appears to be working now. What does the -v do?

It binds the volume to a local path. If that works, that means that I was right, you have remaining files in the path ~/dgraph. Not sure if you are familiar with Unix like systems. The path ~/ is the home of your user. And ~/dgraph means that you have a Dgraph folder at the home. You should delete it do clean up and use it again if you wanna kind of persist the data for long time.

You may want to check Step 1 on the Getting Started page: https://dgraph.io/docs/get-started/

The Docker command is not correct as it displays v20.11 rather than v20.11.0

Ok, I will check. Thank you for your help.

Yeah, I know thanks. There is an issue tracking this. And I probably will take it to fix it.

Thanks again for your speedy help @MichelDiz. It turns out there was a Dgraph directory in the user home directory. I have no idea how and why it got there but it was there. As you indicated, removing it solved the issue with persistence enabled.
