docker-compose restart

Estimated reading time: 1 minute
Usage: restart [options] [SERVICE...]

Options:
-t, --timeout TIMEOUT      Specify a shutdown timeout in seconds. (default: 10)

Restarts all stopped and running services.

If you make changes to your docker-compose.yml configuration these changes are not reflected after running this command.

For example, changes to environment variables (which are added after a container is built, but before the container’s command is executed) are not updated after restarting.

If you are looking to configure a service’s restart policy, please refer to restart in Compose file v3 and restart in Compose v2. Note that if you are deploying a stack in swarm mode, you should use restart_policy, instead.
