Installing in Docker

Installing in Docker

A Docker image was created with Ubuntu 18.04 and all the required files already installed. 

  • Open a terminal window
  • Create a Docker container
    • docker run -it algorand/testnet
  • This should put you at the bash prompt inside the Docker container within the ~/node directory.
  • You should now configure telemetry as described in the installing a node guide. In this step should only have to run:
    • ./diagcfg telemetry name -n <name>
  • After this, you should be able to start the node as described in the installing a node guide.

Note we do not currently configure the container for any persistent storage, so when you stop the container your node is wiped - there is no persistence!
