I learned about Proxmox LXC containers, and I understand that the approach is different than how we used to host Docker containers in Portainer.

I did some research and I found the following options to host Docker containers in Proxmox:

1-Create a LXC container , install Docker in it and make it a Container template.

2-Create a LXC container , install Portainer in it and use Portainer ‘s LXC container to host so many other containers

3- Do the above two options in a VM



I am new to Proxmox and its Containers so I wanted to consult with this forum and learn what is the most popular and common way to host Docker style containers in Proxmox

VM, it's explicit in the manual: https://pve.proxmox.com/pve-docs/pve-admin-guide.html#chapter_pct

Lots of threads on this forum about problems with Docker in a container.
