For security, HostJane does not send this to you by email.

You must login to your hosting account to review these credentials.

2. Login with SSH

Login to your server with PuTTY on Windows or an OpenSSH client in linux and MacOS devices:

docker run hello-world

The server will connect to Docker and download the latest image:

3. The docker user

For security reasons, since it’s best not to run everyday administrative tasks as the root, we automatically create a docker user and docker group for you.

The docker user can run containers but has limited privileges.

You can switch to this user by typing the following on the command line:

su - docker

Add any other user to the docker group to run containers with that user.

To find more information on running Docker containers, go to Red Hat’s guide.

You now have the basic information to start using your new cloud server running Docker on your chosen Linux distribution.
