  1. Copy Container from source directory again, or try to restore Container from backup.
  2. If the Container still fails to deploy or launch then re-create the Container, this will recreate any missing configuration files.
  3. Invalid xml configuration files (error codes -8 through to -13) typically occur when XML tags are malformed, this usually happens as a result of incorrect editing of configuration files.
  4. Contact Cloudhouse Support.
