Portainer Not Starting

I created a new portainer instance and after I started it for the first time with default settings, it crashed. Here is what was sent to build logs:

Container failed to start

We failed to create a container for this image.
Potential reasons for this happening are:
The start command is invalid.

Start command: `docker run -d -p 8000:8000 -p 9443:9443 --name portainer --restart=always -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock -v portainer_da...
okay then you can completely disregard that template, it seems that someone didn't quite understand what they where doing.
1. you can't use docker run in the start command
2. you can't access the underlying docker deamon, so it's useless on railway

Volumes: permission denied with browserless

Project ID: 75c2d2e3-662e-4b72-bcde-32f446f024ba

1. Deploy browserless
2. Make sure you specify VERSION env variable 1-chrome-stable (do not use latest because it has a bug)
3. Create a volume called downloads
4. Add a environment variable called WORKSPACE_DIR with value /downloads (this is supposedly pointing to the volume created in the previous step)
5. Now try to do a CURL to workspaces
curl -X GET \

Curious if anyone has deployed EdgeDB on Railway. Looking at the docs, there is a Docker container but the idea way to use EdgeDB is with their server CLI tool.

Autoscale replica

Is it possible to autoscale a replica during heavy workloads?

Typebot - audio autoplay not working (bug)

Hey guys,
I'm using the typebot template available from Railway itself (baptistearno/typebot-builder:2.17.2)

I started creating flows, but I realized that even though I marked an audio to play automatically, it didn't play. And it only works after I press play.
The strange thing is that, after I manually play the first audio in the flow, the autoplays for the next audios work normally.

I've already tried creating new flows from scratch to test, but the error continues.

Horizontal scaling on hobby plan

I see that on the pricing page horizontal scaling is only on pro plan, but in my hobby account I still see the replicas field and I can deploy multiple replicas.

So are there more features on the pro plan for horizontal scaling or what's going on?
