AUFS was not found in /proc/filesystems

AUFS is recommended to install Discourse on dedicated server with Docker.
I try since 5 days to install Discourse on my CT (container with Ubuntu).
It’s a fresh installation of Ubuntu.

When I type dockerd in console, I’ve this:

ERRO[2019-01-22T15:55:35.218720575Z] 'overlay' not found as a supported filesystem on this host. Please ensure kernel is new enough and has overlay support loaded.  storage-driver=overlay2
ERRO[2019-01-22T15:55:35.222390331Z] AUFS was not found in /proc/filesystems       storage-driver=aufs
ERRO[2019-01-22T15:55:35.225749945Z] 'overlay' not found as a supported filesystem on this host. Please ensure kernel is new enough and has overlay support loaded.  storage-driver=overlay
ERRO[2019-01-22T15:55:35.225833587Z] Failed to built-in GetDriver graph devicemapper /var/lib/docker

And I can’t install Discourse if my Storage Driver is VFS. I can’t change VFS into other driver.

What are you installing on? a local machine or a VPS?

I try to install it on a VPS (Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS).

It’s a VPS works on Proxmox.

Try contacting Your VPS provider, I was using a provider called skysilk, they too are using tech from proxmox and they didn’t support docker (AUFS/OVERLAY) due to some weird kernel issues. maybe your Provider has a similar problem?
