Please update to the latest version of Baserow, 1.4.2 which no longer exposes the redis, db and mjml containers. Additionally, 1.4.2 only exposes the backend, web-frontend and media containers on localhost and not on If you were previously relying on docker-compose.yml publicly exposing Baserow then please follow the Make Baserow publicly accessible section in the docker how to guide.
