Can anyone help, thanks very much.

Hi @zyh94946, in Traefik v2 , the static and dynamic configuration are separated, as explained in the documentation: https://docs.traefik.io/v2.0/getting-started/configuration-overview/ .

The HTTP Routers and middlewares, for instance, are object only picked in the dynamic configuration (as per their respective documentation https://docs.traefik.io/v2.0/routing/routers/ and https://docs.traefik.io/v2.0/middlewares/overview/ ).

In order to configure HTTP routers and middleware, you must enable the "file provider" (ref. https://docs.traefik.io/v2.0/providers/file/) and point it to the TOML (or yaml) file containing the configuration.

Try to change:



    filename = "traefik.toml"

Thanks for your reply, this is my mistake, I go and look the documentation. :slight_smile:

Hi @zyh94946 do not worry, it was not a mistake. I put the documentation links only to help you to learn on this complicate topic :slight_smile: Have fun with Traefik!

Thank you for solving my question :smile:

Hey @dduportal, does this advice apply to dynamic configuration with Docker labels? More generally - are dynamic config files and Docker labels the same thing?

Traefik gets its dynamic configuration from providers: whether an orchestrator, a service registry, or a plain old configuration file.


The dynamic configuration sources can be:

  • a file
  • the labels from Docker
  • an Ingress file
  • anf IngressRoute file
  • ...
