Step 1: Register Your Account
Step 2: Choose Your Cloud Instance
From your Cloud Dashboard, go to the ‘Add VM’ section. Here, you’ll find a variety of cloud instance options. Select the one that suits your needs. If you need help deciding, our Instance Pricing Guide can guide you.
Step 3: Install Docker
With your cloud instance ready, you can proceed to install Docker. Connect to your instance via SSH and run the following commands:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https ca-certificates curl gnupg lsb-release
curl -fsSL https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu/gpg | sudo gpg --dearmor -o /usr/share/keyrings/docker-archive-keyring.gpg
"deb [arch=amd64 signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/docker-archive-keyring.gpg] https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu \
$(lsb_release -cs) stable" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/docker.list > /dev/null
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install docker-ce docker-ce-cli containerd.io
This will install Docker on your cloud instance. To verify the installation, type
docker --version. You should see the version of Docker that’s been installed.
Step 4: Run Your First Docker Container
Now that Docker is installed, you can run your first Docker container. Let’s run a simple “Hello World” application to test everything is working correctly:
sudo docker run hello-world
You should see a message indicating that your Docker installation is working correctly.
Congratulations! You now have a Docker environment set up on your ServerStadium cloud instance. You’re ready to start deploying applications in Docker containers and leveraging the powerful features of ServerStadium’s cloud instances.
