I started using docker about 2 days ago and just as I know myself I already put it in production without knowing too much about it. Of course I had a bad experience, especially when after using a wordpress docker and doing development on the site, I did run:
and then I did run:
Then I logged into my docker and I saw ….. ALL MY CHANGES GONE!
Clearly I do not have a good understanding of docker and docker-compose, so I decided to install an interface to help me understand the concept. I chose Portainer.
Here are some usefull commands:
docker run -d -p 9000:9000 -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock portainer/portainer //create portainer without naming it docker run --name portainer -d -p 9000:9000 -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock portainer/portainer //create portainer naming it docker ps //To show only running containers docker ps -a //To show all containers docker ps -l //To show the latest created container docker ps -n=-1 //To show n last created containers docker ps -s //To display total file sizes
To reset the environment:
docker ps -aq ;docker stop $(docker ps -aq) ;docker rm $(docker ps -aq) ;docker rmi $(docker images -q) ;docker network rm $(docker network ls)
