How to Install Docker and Portainer in a Promox 7 LXC Container

Update the apt package index and install packages to allow apt to use a repository over HTTPS:

apt-get update

Install Docker

apt-get install \
    apt-transport-https \
    ca-certificates \
    curl \
    gnupg \

Add Docker’s official GPG key:

curl -fsSL | gpg --dearmor -o /usr/share/keyrings/docker-archive-keyring.gpg

Use the following command to set up the stable repository. To add the nightly or test repository, add the word nightly or test (or both) after the word stable in the commands below.

echo \
  "deb [arch=amd64 signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/docker-archive-keyring.gpg] \
  $(lsb_release -cs) stable" | tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/docker.list > /dev/null

Update the apt package index, and install the latest version of Docker Engine and container.

apt-get update
apt-get install docker-ce docker-ce-cli

Verify docker is running on the system

systemctl status docker

Install Portainer

–name=”portainer” \
–restart on-failure \
-p 9000:9000 \
-v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \
-v portainer_data:/data \
