Facing problem installing plone on windows 11

Hey everyone, After submitting the agreement , I am going through the plone documentation for installing it. I had successfully installed the Docker. I had never used Docker before. But after that when I run the command: docker run --name plone6-backend -e SITE=Plone -e CORS_ALLOW_ORIGIN='*' -d -p 8080:8080 plone/plone-backend:6.0

I am getting this error: docker: error during connect: This error may indicate that the docker daemon is not running.: Post "http://%2F%2F.%2Fpipe%2Fdocker_engine/v1.24/containers/create?name=plone6-backend": open //./pipe/docker_engine: The system cannot find the file specified.
See 'docker run --help'.

can anyone help me to solve this.

I would suggest to install Plone on a linux machine (ex-Ubuntu ) ,you will run into lesser errors.
But the following steps can solve this problem:

  1. Open cmd as administrator
  2. Launch command: "C:\Program Files\Docker\Docker\DockerCli.exe" -SwitchDaemon

I was facing the same issue in Win 11, exiting the docker and restarting it resolved the issue.

Hey, I had run those backend frontend command provided in the plone documentation. But after that , in docs, it is written that:" Point your browser to http://localhost:3000 and you should see the new Plone site." After setting frontend backend, I visit to above link, but there it shows this site can't be reached.

So, anyone can tell What I need to do?

yes, same works for me also. After doing the same, it had created the two containers.

I had the exact same issue, here is the thread of the same.
