Mobile Travelsample tutorial - cannot access Python backend during setup (Docker)

note: As a new user I can only add 2 links, so I’m substitting xxxx for the url

I am following the tutorial for the mobile travelsample app, setting up the servers using docker locally.

I manage to launch all three docker images without any errors. The try-cb-python runs with the following output:

Connecting to: couchbase://cb-server/travel-sample?username=Administrator

  • Running on xxxx (Press CTRL+C to quit)

The problem however comes with the next step in the tutorial that instructs you to

“Open xxxx in your web browser.”

I don’t see the server running at this address, instead I get the following error:

This site can’t be reached

The webpage at xxxx might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.


That looks like a documentation goof. Use the address of the machine that docker is running on (probably localhost)

Yup. That solved it. thanks.
