Hi Guys,

I installed docker engine on my local system. I also launched one docker container. Now I want to run docker inside that docker container. How can I do that?

Hi@akhtar,

There are different ways to run docker inside docker container. One way is, you can manually install docker inside your container. But the easier way is you can share or mount your local docker engine inside docker container. Use the below given command to implement this task.

$ docker run -it -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock --name os1 imahe_name

Now you can run docker commands inside your docker container.
