Connection Refused

I'm trying to run Forem locally using docker on a Macbook M1 but am getting the following error on firing the command bin/container-setup

Problem with dial: dial tcp connect: connection refused. Sleeping 20s

I'm looking forward to make some contributions, so please help me figure out this issue so that I can run locally.

Hey @vivek7405 ! Thank you for wanting to contribute to Forem!

I am going to try to help you debug this error. I have a few suggestions but first can you send a screenshot of the full output from when you started the setup containers script to when you saw the connection error. This will help us see if there were any other earlier errors and make it easier to give you the right suggestions to fix this issue. Thanks! πŸ™
