Prepare images for personal use on different machines


i just started using docker and need help with a project. so far, i have created a docker machine and launched an image.

docker-machine default (
service nginx

nginx is launched by this command: docker run -d -p 8000:80. it works, an i can access the nginx server through

when i ssh into default (via docker-machine ssh default), i cannot access the web folder; /var/www/ does not even exist.

i was planning to set up different docker machines running specific services (in this case TT-RSS on nginx), configure them (not just a basic setup, actually create different users, subscribe to rss feeds etc), then export these fully configured docker image to a server. is this possible?

thanks in advance :slight_smile:
