setup wizard won't get past pg 1 Docker setup on Ubuntu 18.04


I’m testing using the docker script available from

The only items I changed were the ROOT_URL which I set to my local server I’m testing. ROOT_URL=

When I get to the setup wizard on I can fill in name, username, email, password and click on Continue. Continue turns light blue and the process just hangs. I’ve tried this on Chrome and Firefox

I’ve checked all the docker logs and everything seems to be running normally. Any ideas?

I did check the post where there seemed to be a similar issue: Can't get Setup Wizard to progress beyond 'Step 1' - 'continue' button does nothing

But changing the email had no affect on the lack of progress of the setup wizard

Anything in browser logs or server logs at all? This sounds kinda like a client side issue
