Docker problems -- Cannot start docker

docker

(Bobby) #1

Whenever I try to start docker I get this error:

Cannot connect to the docker daemon - verify it is running and you have access

Here is some basic infos about the environment I am running docker in:
OS: Ubuntu 12.04

Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!

I can not start docker questions are probably best at: https://forums.docker.com/

But you are going to need to provide more details.

I would go to the docker forums, but when I login it says “Error updating information” in a plain text page so here is the best option for me.

When I do docker info I get this:
Get http:///var/run/docker.sock/v1.16/info: dial unix /var/run/docker.sock: permission denied. Are you trying to connect to a TLS-enabled daemon without TLS? admin@discourse:/var/discourse$

Docker start returns this:

start: Rejected send message, 1 matched rules; type="method_call", sender=":1.12" (uid=1000 pid=13388 comm="start docker ") interface="com.ubuntu.Upstart0_6.Job" member="Start" error name="(unset)" requested_reply="0" destination="com.ubuntu.Upstart" (uid=0 pid=1 comm="/sbin/init")

And lastly, ./launcher bootstrap app outputs this:

time="2015-01-07T02:09:32Z" level="fatal" msg="Get http:///var/run/docker.sock/v1.16/info: dial unix /var/run/docker.sock: permission denied. Are you trying to connect to a TLS-enabled daemon without TLS?" Cannot connect to the docker daemon - verify it is running and you have access

Can you set an email up on your docker account, raising that issue with the team
