How to Set-up and Configure Docker On AWS cloud
- an EC2 instance (Linux).
What is docker?
- Docker is open source and written in Google’s Go language. It is based on containerization (OS-level virtualization), where the physical server and operating system are virtualized to produce multiple instances.
Step 1. Launch a Linux instance on AWS:
You can refer this blog for Launching EC2 instance.
I have already launched a Linux Ec2 instance on AWS.
Step 2. Connect to the EC2 instance and install Docker:
I have connected Ec2 instance with Putty.
- Then run this command to update the yum package :
$ sudo yum update -y
- Installing docker by running this command:
$ sudo yum install docker -y
Step 3. Configure Docker :
For non-root users in Linux, you might need to proceed with below steps to avoid permission issues.
- Create the docker group using following command
$ sudo groupadd docker
- Add user to the docker group using following command:
$ sudo usermod -aG docker $USER
Log out and log in again so that the changes get reflected.
Step 4. Start Docker service :
- Start docker service using following command:
$ sudo systemctl start docker
- To check docker service status (running or not) using following command:
$ sudo systemctl status docker
