A quick guide to setting up Docker on a Linode Ubuntu server. As I go deeper into exploring docker and building applications and services in new ways, I wanted a post that acts as a starting point.
$ sudo apt-get update
First, add the GPG key for the official Docker repository to the system:
$ curl -fsSL https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu/gpg | sudo apt-key add -
Add the Docker repository to APT sources:
$ sudo add-apt-repository "deb [arch=amd64] https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu $(lsb_release -cs) stable"
Then Install Docker
sudo apt-get install -y docker-ce
Check the Docker Status
sudo systemctl status docker
That's it docker is now running on our Linux server. I will be adding more posts to the blog as I explore docker more.
