To start, make sure our system is up to date

Update your systems:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Once the system is up to date, we install Docker followed by portainer which is a simple management solution for Docker. It consists of a web UI that allows you to easily manage your Docker containers, images, networks, etc.. For more info – https://portainer.readthedocs.io/en/stable/

sudo apt install docker.io
sudo systemctl enable docker
sudo systemctl start docker
sudo systemctl status docker

Once that is done, we are now ready to install the program portainer as our first docker container…. This will enable you to manage Docker

Create a disk for you portainer instance

sudo docker volume create portainer_data

sudo docker run -d \
–name=”portainer” \
–restart on-failure \
-p 9000:9000 \
-v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \
-v portainer_data:/data \
portainer/portainer

Now you should be able to connect to portainer…. To do this you navigate to http://IP.OF.HOST:9000

It will prompt you to create a username, once you do that, click on create user After that choose Local and then click on connect.

Done!
