Unable to Connect to Docker

Problem: Inability to connect to Docker could be due to several different causes.

Solution: Please check the following:

  1. Make sure the user account running docker is part of the docker group. Test it by running the following Linux command:

    id Output: uid=1000(ec2-user)gid=1000(ec2-user)groups=1000(ec2-user),4(adm),10(wheel),190(systemd-journal),**991(docker)**
  2. Make sure that you have added the docker user to the docker group.

  3. If steps 1 and 2 don’t solve the issue, exit the shell and log back in.
