    Latest mention: Container restarts constantly after running docker-compose up, but not after docker run | | 2021-01-18

    Ah then you probably want to run the ssh daemon as your command line in the dockerfile instead of running it in the background as a service. You probably won't need stdin_open since that just lets you feed input to it from the shell. Here's an example of a ssh daemon for ubuntu:
