How to setup docker
How to setup docker on different systems so that it starts automatically on startup, and authenticate.
sudo apt update && sudo apt install wget # Install wget just in case you don't have it wget -qO- https://get.docker.com/ | sh # Install docker - NB: doesn't actually start the docker service sudo usermod -aG docker `whoami` # Add yourself to the docker group # Now log out and back in again sudo service docker start # Make sure the docker service is running
NB: If you’re using 16.04 pre-release, you’ll probably need to manually set your
docker.sources file to use
xenial doesn’t seem to exist yet.
NB: You’ll probably also need to fix docker’s DNS using this guide
This is out-of-date. You should now use use Docker Toolbox
# Install dependencies brew tap caskroom/cask brew cask install virtualbox brew install boot2docker # Setup boot2docker to run on on startup ln -sfv /usr/local/opt/boot2docker/*.plist ~/Library/LaunchAgents # run at startup echo '$(boot2docker shellinit)' >> ~/.bash_profile # Initialize boot2docker launchctl load ~/Library/LaunchAgents/homebrew.mxcl.boot2docker.plist # Run now boot2docker init # Initialize VM boot2docker up # Start boot2docker echo -e "\n`boot2docker shellinit`" # Set environment variables # Test docker works docker run hello-world
When you restart your computer, docker should now work seamlessly.
For some people the above method doesn’t seem to work properly. In this case, create a new image with TLS disabled as follows:
boot2docker stop # Stop any running VM boot2docker delete # Delete existing VM boot2docker init # Make a clean VM boot2docker up # Start the VM boot2docker ssh # Log into the VM $ sudo echo 'DOCKER_TLS = "no"' >> /var/lib/boot2docker/profile # Turn off TLS $ exit boot2docker restart # Restart everything
# Login to hub.docker.com with an account that has access docker login # Check you can now pull the python-auth image docker pull ubuntudesign/python-auth # If you can't see ubuntudesign/python-auth then ask someone to add you
Setting up Docker on Canonicals DNS
First you will need to edit your Docker configuration file (/lib/systemd/system/docker.service)
sudo vim /lib/systemd/system/docker.service
Edit the line starting ExecStart with the following:
ExecStart=/usr/bin/docker daemon --dns 184.108.40.206 --dns 10.20.64.1 -H fd://
Save and Quit
Then follow that with two commands:
sudo systemctl daemon-reload sudo service docker restart
