Using Docker with PufferPanel

Using Docker on an OpenVZ VPS

Some VPS providers use a technology called OpenVZ for their virtualization.

Only OpenVZ kernel version 042stab105.4 or higher support Docker. You can check your kernel version by running uname -a

We recommend using a KVM VPS or dedicated server if you are planning to use Docker.

If you don’t know if your VPS is OpenVZ or not, run test -e /proc/user_beancounters && echo This VPS is OpenVZ and see if the message “This VPS is OpenVZ” prints out.

First, install Docker on the node. Please follow Docker’s installation instructions located at https://docs.docker.com/get-docker/

Next, add the docker group (if not there) and add pufferpanel as a user of this group.

sudo groupadd --force --system docker
sudo usermod -a -G docker pufferpanel

Restart PufferPanel.

systemctl restart pufferpanel
