Installing in Docker

Installing in Docker

A Docker image was created with Ubuntu 18.04 and the required libsodium-dev and wget packages pre-installed. We also install a certificates package as the certs required for S3 are outdated.

  • Open a terminal window
  • Create a Docker container
    • docker run -it algorand/node
  • This should put you at the bash prompt inside the Docker container (the remaining steps are identical to Ubuntu above, starting after the ‘Install the libsodium-dev package’ step)

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!
