Docker Tutorial Series, Part 2: The 15 Commands

  • May 07, 2014

In part one of our Docker Tutorial Series, we learned about the basics of #Docker. We examined how it works and how it’s installed. In this post, let’s now learn the 15 Docker commands and get some hands-on experience in how they are used and what they do.

First, let’s check if Docker is properly installed by running the following command:

docker info

If this command is not found, then it indicates Docker has not been properly installed. A proper install would look similar to the following image:


docker info

At this point, there are no images or containers. So, let’s create one by pulling a pre-built image using the command:

sudo docker pull busybox
docker pull busybox
