Enable Docker Engine API

  1. Navigate to /lib/systemd/system in your terminal and open docker.service file

    $ vi /lib/systemd/system/docker.service
  2. Find the line which starts with ExecStart and adds -H=tcp:// to make it look like

    ExecStart=/usr/bin/dockerd -H=fd:// -H=tcp://
  3. Save the Modified File

  4. Reload the docker daemon

    $ sudo systemctl daemon-reload
  5. Restart the docker service

    $ sudo service docker restart
  6. Test if it is working by using this command, if everything is fine below command should return a JSON

    $ curl http://localhost:2375/images/json
  7. To test remotely, use the PC name or IP address of Docker Host

Run Docker commands as a non-root user

To create the docker group and add your user:

  1. Create the docker group.

    $ sudo groupadd docker
  2. Add your user to the docker group.

    $ sudo usermod -aG docker $USER
  3. Log out and log back in so that your group membership is re-evaluated.

    On Linux, you can also run the following command to activate the changes to groups:

    $ newgrp docker 
  4. Verify that you can run docker commands without sudo.

    $ docker ps
