Docker on OpenVZ 7 vs KVM

bustersgbustersg Member

I'm used to setup both Docker and Docker Compose on KVM to run WordPress etc.
There is a cheap OpenVZ 7 deal which I like to subscribe to and migrate existing WordPress docker over.

How difficult will it be to setup Docker on OpenVZ 7 vs KVM. Is running Docker more prone to errors vs KVM? When provider says is OpenVZ 7, does it means 100% Docker will run?

    Docker can be installed in just a few commands on Linux. OpenVZ 7 should support it (if you have enough resources, such as RAM, just like in KVM).

    The big question is: why use Docker in the first place? You don't really need Docker for a Wordpress. Personally, I don't like Docker, but that's just my taste.

    Fastmako (aff) - great VPS for your needs.

    From my experiences hosts that uses OpenVZ7 does support docker, but some may require some kind of tweaking from the provider's side. Sometimes it requires a ticket as well. TBH it's best to ask the provider before purchasing

    personally i prefer plain LEMP for wordpress but i learning Docker so i use it for a purpose at least. i find it troublesome to reach out to configure nginx/ php config etc vs LEMP setup.

    a few commands is right, CentOS 7.6 installed Docker in 6 commands. 8 if you want specific stuff.

    Lame! Debian 10 does it in 5.

    apt install -y apt-transport-https ca-certificates wget gnupg2 software-properties-common 
    wget -O - https://download.docker.com/linux/debian/gpg | apt-key add
    echo "deb [arch=amd64] https://download.docker.com/linux/debian buster stable" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/docker.list
    apt update
    apt install -y docker-ce docker-ce-cli docker-compose
