I'm trying to get a multi-container Docker deploy running via WSL2 on Windows (😬) to help a colleague and Docker seems to be refusing the connection when trying to launch a run container? Anybody know what's up here or who could point me in the right direction to debug myself? 99.9% certain that my
files are in the proper place since this is a stripped down version of another deployment I have that works just fine with the same setup.

Hi clay - I can point to the specific line in the deploy_docker example that's supposed to make this work: - I don't immediately know whether or now that would need to be altered for WSL2 though. Does the deploy_docker example work out of the box for them with no changes?

I'll try that in a bit. I double-checked that the docker.sock file is in that location and it was
Also, I have that exact line in my docker-compose file b/c I copied it from the example. 🙂
(this all works fine on a cloud linux vm)
maybe there's a permissions error on the sock file or something
I got it working… WSL2 doesn’t run systemd so I had to edit its boot config and restart it. Then I did a voodoo ceremony and swore a bunch and it started working.
