/graylog/data/journal and /graylog/config from the examples in the documentation have to be existing local directories which are mounted into the Graylog Docker container.

See for details.

Hello thanks for the answer but can you be more verbose i’m new to docker !
where should i create this directories ? what the full path ? i went to
/user/share and created these directories but error still happenned !

You can use an arbitrary path on your host machine for these directories, they don’t have to be at /graylog/data/journal and /graylog/config.

Just make sure to mount them at the correct path inside the container, i. e. /usr/share/graylog/data/journal and /usr/share/graylog/data/config.

Well, you can see the error message on your screenshot:

If REST and Web interface are served on the same host/port, the protocols must be identical!

TLS (HTTPS) must be used on both listeners (Graylog REST API and Graylog web interface) if they’re running on the same network interface (port).

hello, i keep fighting to make graylog works with ssl
i generated ssl with letsencrypt. seem like letsencrypt privkey is not in
pkcs8 format so i used openssl to do the change.

any tutorial with using letsencrypt ?

See for details about configuring HTTPS in Graylog.
