How to Install Docker on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

  1. First, log in to your Ubuntu server as the root user using your favorite SSH client.
  2. Next, you’ll want to update your operating system with all the latest packages. To do this, use the command:
    sudo apt-get update
  3. To install Docker, you will first need to install the Docker Package using the command:
    apt-get -y install
  4. Next, you’ll need to configure the proper path and links to ensure that docker will work properly. You can do this by using the commands:
    ln -sf /usr/bin/ /usr/local/bin/docker
    sed -i ‘$acomplete -F _docker docker’ /etc/bash_completion.d/docker
  5. To enable Docker to start when your server boots up, use the command:
    update-rc.d defaults
  6. Lastly, you’ll need to download the docker container using the commands:
    docker pull Ubuntu
    docker run -i -t ubuntu /bin/bash

And there you have it!
