Install Docker on different directory. Ubuntu Vivid 15.04

(Fmontada) #1

Hi team
with this command “$ curl -sSL | sh” we are able to install Docker on Ubuntu.
Question, How can we change the default docker installation directory. because we need to install docker on a AWS EBS to persist the installation.

For this to work you can mount the AWS EBS to /var/lib/docker so that once the docker daemon starts it will create the required FS layout inside /var/lib/docker

Hi ranjandas thanks for your replay

Our problem is that we are using Atlassina Bamboo onDemand (AWS) for Continues Integration and the AMI that they provide come with Docker 1.5.0 , with this version of Docker we are no able to push Images to the Docker Hub , we read that version has some incompatibility.

The Atlassian team support suggest install Docker on a EBS and use this installation instead of the one that come with the AMI

could you check the link below

Hi Francisco

Unfortunately both your links are private. So I won’t be able to take a look at it.

If an old version of Docker is causing the issue why can’t you upgrade the docker version in the AMI.
