Binder fails with DockerException


I have recently been trying to build a binder container from my GitHub repo through
I keep running into this error:

Container engine initialization error: (‘Check if docker is running on the host.’, DockerException(“Error while fetching server API version: (‘Connection aborted.’, ConnectionRefusedError(111, ‘Connection refused’))”))

I was previously able to build the images smoothly.
Do you know what might be causing this issue?
Is this an error related to binder reducing capacity (

Yes, it’s related to that. We’re adding some new hosts but there are still some problems.
