Installing Docker in Virtual Box

Installing Docker in Virtual Box on Ubuntu

In this tutorial we will see the easy way of installing docker along with the required packages and making the docker command sudo free.

Install necessary packages

sudo apt-get install libapparmor1 aufs-tools ca-certificates

Head over to to download the latest version of docker. After downloading run the following command to install.

sudo dpkg -i docker-engine_1.9.1-0~trusty_amd64.deb

Now check the docker version

docker --version

output should be

Docker version 1.9.1, build a34a1d5

To use docker command without sudo , let's add our user to docker group, in this case am adding 'ajeet' user to docker group

 sudo usermod -aG docker ajeet

Now, shutdown the virtual Box and restart it again for the changes to take effect.

Next we will install docker-compose. Click here to know how to install docker-compose.
