Have to docker-compose down and up about 10 times to get ui to show after system restart

docker-compose.yml ```yml version: "2" services: seq: image: 'datalust/seq:5.1.3004' restart: always container_name: seq_log_server environment: ACCEPT_EULA: Y BASE_URI: ${BASE_URI}:${HOST_HTTP_PORT} SEQ_API_CANONICALURI: ${SEQ_API_CANONICALURI}:${HOST_HTTP_PORT} volumes: - $HOST_PATH_TO_SEQ:/data - ./settings.seqbac:/settings.seqbac ports: - $HOST_HTTP_PORT:80 - $HOST_INGESTION_PORT:5341 ``` Example of one that doesn't show ui. ```bash -bash-4.2$ docker-compose up Creating network "seq_default" with the default driver Creating seq_log_server Attaching to seq_log_server seq_log_server | ──────────────────────────────────────── seq_log_server | Seq ♦ Machine data, for humans. seq_log_server | ─────────── © 2019 Datalust Pty Ltd ──── seq_log_server | seq_log_server | Running as server; press Ctrl+C to exit. seq_log_server | seq_log_server | [23:22:31 INF] Seq "5.1.3004" running on OS "Linux 3.10.0-1062.9.1.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Dec 6 15:49:49 UTC 2019" seq_log_server | [23:22:32 INF] Seq listening on ["http://localhost/", "http://localhost:5341/"] seq_log_server | [23:22:32 INF] Seq using canonical URI "REDACTED" seq_log_server | [23:22:32 INF] Opening document store "/data/Documents/documents.lmdb" seq_log_server | [23:22:32 INF] Opening event store at "/data/Extents" seq_log_server | [23:22:32 INF] Available storage engines in order of preference are ["FLARE"] seq_log_server | [23:22:32 INF] Cache warm-up is required seq_log_server | [23:22:32 INF] Storage subsystem available seq_log_server | [23:22:32 INF] Started "Seq.Apps.GenericHost" process 150 for "appinstance-139" seq_log_server | [23:22:32 INF] Started "Seq.Apps.GenericHost" process 156 for "appinstance-315" seq_log_server | [23:22:32 INF] Started "Seq.Apps.GenericHost" process 161 for "appinstance-346" seq_log_server | [23:22:32 INF] Started "Seq.Apps.GenericHost" process 163 for "appinstance-364" seq_log_server | [23:22:32 INF] Started "Seq.Apps.GenericHost" process 166 for "appinstance-381" seq_log_server | [23:22:32 INF] Started "Seq.Apps.GenericHost" process 168 for "appinstance-394" seq_log_server | [23:22:40 INF] Deduplication buffer renewed on reaching {"Schemata": 99, "Strings": 103401} seq_log_server | [23:22:49 INF] Deduplication buffer renewed on reaching {"Schemata": 184, "Strings": 104604} seq_log_server | [23:22:59 INF] Deduplication buffer renewed on reaching {"Schemata": 193, "Strings": 109754} seq_log_server | [23:23:07 INF] Deduplication buffer renewed on reaching {"Schemata": 197, "Strings": 104219} seq_log_server | [23:23:18 INF] Deduplication buffer renewed on reaching {"Schemata": 194, "Strings": 107967} ``` Example of one that works ```bash -bash-4.2$ docker-compose logs -f Attaching to seq_log_server seq_log_server | ──────────────────────────────────────── seq_log_server | Seq ♦ Machine data, for humans. seq_log_server | ─────────── © 2019 Datalust Pty Ltd ──── seq_log_server | seq_log_server | Running as server; press Ctrl+C to exit. seq_log_server | seq_log_server | [23:38:52 INF] Seq "5.1.3004" running on OS "Linux 3.10.0-1062.9.1.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Dec 6 15:49:49 UTC 2019" seq_log_server | [23:38:53 INF] Seq listening on ["http://localhost/", "http://localhost:5341/"] seq_log_server | [23:38:53 INF] Seq using canonical URI "REDACTED" seq_log_server | [23:38:53 INF] Opening document store "/data/Documents/documents.lmdb" seq_log_server | [23:38:53 INF] Opening event store at "/data/Extents" seq_log_server | [23:38:53 INF] Available storage engines in order of preference are ["FLARE"] seq_log_server | [23:38:53 INF] Cache warm-up is required seq_log_server | [23:38:53 INF] Storage subsystem available seq_log_server | [23:38:53 INF] Started "Seq.Apps.GenericHost" process 141 for "appinstance-139" seq_log_server | [23:38:53 INF] Started "Seq.Apps.GenericHost" process 146 for "appinstance-315" seq_log_server | [23:38:53 INF] Started "Seq.Apps.GenericHost" process 148 for "appinstance-346" seq_log_server | [23:38:53 INF] Started "Seq.Apps.GenericHost" process 158 for "appinstance-364" seq_log_server | [23:38:53 INF] Started "Seq.Apps.GenericHost" process 161 for "appinstance-381" seq_log_server | [23:38:53 INF] Started "Seq.Apps.GenericHost" process 164 for "appinstance-394" seq_log_server | [23:39:02 INF] Deduplication buffer renewed on reaching {"Schemata": 99, "Strings": 103401} seq_log_server | [23:39:12 INF] Deduplication buffer renewed on reaching {"Schemata": 184, "Strings": 104602} seq_log_server | [23:39:21 INF] Deduplication buffer renewed on reaching {"Schemata": 193, "Strings": 109751} seq_log_server | [23:39:29 INF] Deduplication buffer renewed on reaching {"Schemata": 197, "Strings": 104220} ``` NOTE: This happened after I had to move the docker-compose.yml file from one directory to another. Before I did this I stopped and removed the old container. I left the volume because I wanted to keep my logs.
