Managing Docker with Portainer
The graphical interfaces makes it much easier to manage Docker containers. Let’s look at a few of the features that Portainer offers.
We’ve accessed the Dashboard by pointing our web browser to https://localhost:9443. The Dashboard offers a convenient overview of stacks images, containers, volumes, and networks.
Portainer provides a simple and easy way to manage Docker Containers.
Click the ‘Containers’ menu on the left and you’ll see the page below.
We can start, stop, restart, create a new container, access the shell of the container, see the container log, and stats of the container from this Portainer container management.
Click the ‘Images’ menu and you will see something like this.
We see a list of docker images on our system. We can manually create a new docker image, or pull/download new images from the Docker Hub repository.
