1. Installing Docker
$ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://p80.pool.sks-keyservers.net:80 --recv-keys 58118E89F3A912897C070ADBF76221572C52609D $ sudo apt-add-repository 'deb https://apt.dockerproject.org/repo ubuntu-xenial main' $ sudo apt-get update
Make sure you are about to install from the Docker repo instead of the default Ubuntu 16.04 repo:
$ apt-cache policy docker-engine
You should see output similar to the follow:
docker-engine: Installed: (none) Candidate: 1.11.1-0~xenial Version table: 1.11.1-0~xenial 500 500 https://apt.dockerproject.org/repo ubuntu-xenial/main amd64 Packages 1.11.0-0~xenial 500 500 https://apt.dockerproject.org/repo ubuntu-xenial/main amd64 Packages
$ sudo apt-get install -y docker-engine
Check that Docker is running:
$ sudo systemctl status docker
The output should be similar to the following, showing that the service is active and running:
● docker.service - Docker Application Container Engine Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/docker.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled) Active: active (running) since Sun 2016-05-01 06:53:52 CDT; 1 weeks 3 days ago Docs: https://docs.docker.com Main PID: 749 (docker)
Ctrl+C to exit.
add your user to the Docker group with the command:
$ sudo usermod -aG docker $USER
2. Working with Docker images
Once your user has been added, you can run the docker command as your standard user.
To check whether you can access and download images from Docker Hub, type:
$ docker run hello-world
The output, which should include the following, should indicate that Docker in working correctly:
Hello from Docker. This message shows that your installation appears to be working correctly. ...
ERRORS & SOLUTIONS
If you get an error like:
docker: Got permission denied while trying to connect to the Docker daemon socket at unix:///var/run/docker.sock: Post http://%2Fvar%2Frun%2Fdocker.sock/v1.28/containers/create: dial unix /var/run/docker.sock: connect: permission denied. See 'docker run --help'.
$ sudo usermod -aG docker $(whoami)
$ sudo usermod -aG docker yourusername
NOTE: None of these worked for me when using Vagrant local development server. In this case, just prepend all commands with ‘sudo’.
$ sudo docker run hello-world
