How to Start Portainer?

How can I start Portainer?

Searching the web leads to this installation page:
https://www.portainer.io/installation

This page assumes the user knows what to do already.

I executed:

docker volume create portainer_data
and
docker run -d -p 8000:8000 -p 9000:9000 -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock -v portainer_data:/data portainer/portainer

Now what???

The page says:
“You’ll just need to access the port 9000 of the Docker engine where portainer is running using your browser.”

I JUST don’t understand.

I checked my browser “localhost:9000” and get

This site can’t be reached
localhost refused to connect.

I check docker images and see the image.

I check docker ps and see that portainer is not running.

I tried docker start portainer and got not such container.

How do I start portainer? Or where can I find a more complete installation guide?

Hi,
If it doesn’t work, try to execute your instruction with “sudo”.

$ sudo docker …

Check if port 9000 is free on your machine.

$ netstat tulpn

Try accessing on : 127.0.0.1:9000 instead of localhost.

Hope this help.
