How to install CUPS sodtware in httpd server?


(Sukumarrdjf) #1

I have a docker image of a server whose base image is httpd:2.4 whose base image is alpine linux . I need to install CUPS software for configuring printers in the server. How do I proceed with installation.

I have included the apk update and apk upgrade commands in Dockerfile which updates alpine linux and trying to install CUPS using apk add cups which is mentioned in

But it is giving me the below error:

OCI runtime create failed: container_linux.go:348: starting contaier process caused "exec: \"apk\": executable file not found in $PATH": unknown

Can someone please tell me where am I going wrong in this and point me in right direction. Why is it not able to find the apk command which is from the base image - alpine linux .

Here’s the Dockerfile :
FROM httpd:2.4
RUN [“apk”, “update”]
RUN [“apk”, “upgrade”]
RUN [“apk”, “add”, “cups”]
