Install docker

Here are docker install instructions from the docker website (pick which os)

Or use another containerization software e.g. podman

See if docker installed, install if not


[ec2-user@ip-172-30-0-157 ~]$ sudo su -

[root@ip-172-30-0-157 ~]# docker
-bash: docker: command not found


Linux docker install instructions

Note, you need a linux with systemd.  It is not recommended to use amazon linux if it doesnt have systemd or an easy way to install docker

The centos-extras repository must be enabled. This repository is enabled by default, but if you have disabled it, you need to re-enable it.
