The above error is what I get while installing docker discourse.

Is there any work around? : LXC VPS
Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

(Jeff Atwood) #2

Your system is unable to work with Docker.

(Cee Kay) #3

Are you sure? So changing to another VPS is the only option?

(Cee Kay) #4

Is it because it is LXC container or is it because ubuntu is not supported?

(Rafael dos Santos Silva) #5

Ubuntu is the recommended distro, but running a container inside a container isn’t the most common setup.

Usually we see people using KVM VPSs.

(Cee Kay) #6

Thank you Falco.

So, I can run it error free inside a KVM(Full virtualization) right?

(Rafael dos Santos Silva) #7

Yes, we usually recommend Digital Ocean because it runs out of the box there.

If you browse our #hosting category you will see some recommendations of upcloud, hetzner, vultr. Google cloud and AWS works too.


Most likely the LXC container. It’s possible to run Docker inside LXC/LXD, but it depends on the configuration of the container. You should get a KVM VPS*. I’m using OVH, other mentioned Scaleway and the specs for the 7€ KVM VPS from sound good, too.

*I even run SmartOS (not Linux, but open sourced Solaris kernel) on the cheapest KVM VPS from OVH.

Thanks brother. By the way I am considering to jump to Linode?

Does linode works well with our discourse?, does it support docker install?

I may go to VPS. I found a good offer from them

(Matt Palmer) #10

Yes, Linode will work fine.


Since full virtualisation (i.e. kvm) is quite cheap nowadays, I would stay away from OpenVZ, especially if you want to use Docker.

VirMach has KVM. An offer through lowendbox
