Any plans to add docker support?


Jan 23, 2014
Hi people!

Proxmox now suport LXC and KVM, but maybe developers have any plans to add docker support?

As many times stated in this forum by the dev members, Docker support will never be added directly to Proxmox. Your best bet is to install Docker inside a LXC container (Now that nested containers are officially supported by Proxmox, that should be a fairly easy task to do, and you can even backup the container once you're done). If you're a GUI person like me you can always install "Portainer" and manage your Docker containers from there.

but maybe developers have any plans to add docker support?

no plans. but you can run docker in VMs or in nested LXC containers.
Has there ever been a reason to "never support Docker" tho ? Is it licensing or what is the reason ?
