Docker-compose with auto_update


As a new user of Docker, Docker Compose, and YAML, I tried to create a Docker Compose file with auto-update enabled but encountered an error. The error message stated that there was an issue with the YAML formatting on line 5. I was unsure of the correct formatting and asked for help. A more experienced user provided a corrected Docker Compose file, which resolved the issue.


The user was trying to create a docker-compose file with auto-update enabled, but encountered an error while running the file. They posted their code and error message on a forum, seeking help. Another user suggested a revised version of the code that had proper YAML syntax and was correctly formatted for docker-compose. The revised code included the "auto_update" service in the services section and added the necessary label to the "appsmith" service to enable auto-update. The original poster confirmed that the revised code worked and thanked the other user for their help.
