File browser web interface error

I am seeing the following error message on my server:
“can only create exec sessions on running containers: container state improper”

Not sure if it is related, but this happened after I did a system backup on an external HD and then disconnected that device.

So I restarted the whole start9 server and the error went away.


As you’ve discovered, when presented with this particular error:

Error: can only create exec session on running containers: container start imporper

…it can be solved by…

  1. First restarting the server
  2. If the issue persists, System → System Rebuild.

“Restarting” works on so many things in life, that I wonder if it’s some sort of quasi-evidence for reincarnation too. I digress. LOL
