Orphaned Docker Containers
docker-compose up you’ll get a warning like
Found orphan containers (xyz …) for this project even though the containers from the warning are not related to the current project. The thing is that docker-compose uses the current directory name as the project name.
If you have the
docker-compose.yml in a subdirectory named
docker—as many tutorials suggest—
docker-compose will use
docker as the project name.
