MagicMirror on Docker - config.js issues

  • Hi all!

    First try with MagicMirror this…

    Having had some issues running MagicMirror on a Rpi3 (raspbian-lite) I decided to to try docker. After setting it up and getting it running I run into the usual issue of editing the ipWhitelist. Whenever I edit this file and restarts the container, MagicMirror replaces my config.json with a new config.json.sample. It is also not reachable on the network anymore. I would really appreciate if someone could help me along here! 🙂


  • try also delete the “on” at the end of the file name 🙂


    And what is your exact config looks like? Maybe try this first:

    var config = {
            address: "", // Address to listen on, can be:
                                  // - "localhost", "", "::1" to listen on lo$
                                  // - another specific IPv4/6 to listen on a specific$
                                  // - "", "", "::" to listen on any interface
                                  // Default, when address config is left out, is "loc$
            port: 8080,
            ipWhitelist: [], // Set [] to allow all IP addresses
                                                                   // or add a specifi$
                                                                   // ["", ":$
                                                                   // or IPv4 range of$
                                                                   // ["", ":$

  • Thank you so much!!

    The filename was a typo in my post, but changing the listen address solved my issues!

    Now on to figuring out how to actually use MM! 🙂

  • you’re welcome. Enjoy it and have fun 😃
