ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED error while running Playwright tests in Docker? Here's how you can fix it:
First, ensure your Docker container can access the internet and resolve domain names. Test this by running a
ping command inside the container.
Docker containers use the host machine's DNS settings by default. Make sure these are correct and functioning.
If domain name resolution is still an issue, use explicit IP addresses in your Playwright tests. This bypasses DNS resolution issues.
If Docker is behind a firewall or proxy server, ensure it allows outgoing connections from Docker containers and doesn't block necessary ports or protocols.
Make sure you're using the latest version of Playwright and its dependencies in your Docker image.
To check if the issue is Docker-specific, try running your Playwright tests on your local machine. If they work fine, the issue is likely with Docker's networking.
The official Playwright documentation and community forums can provide additional help.
ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED error can have multiple causes. Analyze your setup, network configuration, and error messages to identify the root cause.
If you still have questions, please ask a question and I will try to answer it.
