ISP changed my IP

I finally realized why I’m offline, my ISP changed my IP address. and my node shows the old IP. How do I correct this? thanks

Hello @wizardofwhere, you will have to stop and remove the old container and create a new one with the updated ip. It might be better for you to use a hostname instead of an ip like that this does not happen again if your isp changes your ip. You can use a service like no ip, instructions can be found here Create a Free Hostname using NoIP

Thanks for the help. I tried making changes but see this error how do I fix it?
Error response from daemon: Conflict. The container name “/storagenode” is already in use by container “03caf7e011250da07ac952a6b7446c3aa5cab96cbb2022f2f9182014fbb716f2”. You have to remove (or rename) that container to be able to reuse that name.

The error means that a container named storagenode has not been removed, you need to stop the container, remove it and then run the docker run command ie

  1. docker stop storagenode
  2. docker rm storagenode
  3. docker run etc etc etc
