- First, log in to your Ubuntu server as the root user using your favorite SSH client.
- Next, you’ll want to update your operating system with all the latest packages. To do this, use the command:
sudo apt-get update
- To install Docker, you will first need to install the Docker Package using the command:
apt-get -y install docker.io
- 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/docker.io /usr/local/bin/docker
sed -i ‘$acomplete -F _docker docker’ /etc/bash_completion.d/docker
- To enable Docker to start when your server boots up, use the command:
update-rc.d docker.io defaults
- 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!
