I have 2 Dockers: my ASP.NET Core Web server -p 5001:80 postgresql -p 5451:5432 When I configure my Web Server to work with postgresql running on my host it works. But when I run configure myWeb App to work with postgresql in Docker , run http://localhost:5001 it
starts but then an error appears: warn: Microsoft.AspNetCore.HttpsPolicy.HttpsRedirectionMiddleware Failed to determine the https port for redirect. fail: Microsoft.AspNetCore.Diagnostics.ExceptionHandlerMiddleware An unhandled exception has occurred while executing the request. System.InvalidOperationException: An exception has been raised that is likely due to a transient failure. ---> Npgsql.NpgsqlException (0x80004005): Exception while connecting ---> System.Net.Internals.SocketExceptionFactory+ExtendedSocketException (99): Cannot assign requested address [::1]:5451
If I connect the app to an external non-dockerized PostgreSQL - it works fine.
What is incorrect and how to fix it?
There is my docker-compose file
localhost here refers to the locahost of the container which runs the webserver, not your localhost.
Therefore you can't use
localhost to refer to another container, without doing some networking-related things first.
There are several ways to proceed. Since you mention in the comment you're using docker-compose, I would advise the following:
With docker-compose, networking is relatively simple, if all the services that need to communicate with each other are included in the docker-compose.yml file, you run all of them with
docker-compose up. If you haven't specified any specific network in the docker-compose file, docker-compose sets up a single network for all the included services, which makes it possible for each container to reach the other ones, by using a hostname identical to the container name.
Basically, you can then replace
localhost with the service-name of the service you want, i.e. if postgres is called "db" in your docker-compose file, you replace
If you specify custom networks in your docker-compose file, then you have to make sure the web-server and postgres are using the same network.
If you need to run the webapp with
docker run instead of
docker-compose up, then you need to include a
--network argument so that they use the same network.

Edit: Corrected port number. We now need to use the container port, not the host port, as mentioned by @Adiii in above comment.
