Test your Docker Engine 

 

To verify that Docker Engine is working correctly, type the following command

If you receive a message ‘Cannot connect to the Docker daemon‘, means that you will need to start the Docker service. Run the following command:

 

sudo systemctl start docker

or

sudo service docker start

 

Then re run the command to verify Docker is running 

 

sudo docker run hello-world

Run the following command to confirm Docker Compose is installed:

 

docker-compose -version

 

The Docker Compose version should be displayed.
