I will like to use file provider so i can manage reverse proxy for services/apps that are running on remote servers just like nginx for example. Issue is i want to run the traefik as a docker container on the server hosts where traefik will be running
Is it possible to do? before i end up wasting several hours
I'm not sure about your expectations.
You can use the file provider with Traefik inside a container, it's not a problem, but you have to take care of the different networks between the Traefik container and your services/apps.
I will be routing to the services/apps via their ip addressed and they will be reachable from traefik
