Implementing the Portainer GUI
You can manage Docker by using the command line interface (CLI), but you might find the process easier with a graphical user interface (GUI). This article describes the implementation of the Portainer GUI.
Installing Portainer as a container
Start by logging on to your Docker host.
Run the following command to pull the image from Docker Hub.
docker image pull portainer/portainer
This command will start the Portainer container.
docker container run --restart always -d -p 9000:9000 -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock portainer/portainer
Now you can use your preferred browser to access Portainer.
- Start by browsing to http://dockerhost-ip-address:9000/
- Here you can enter the following:
- Username: (e.g. steven)
- Select the Local option.
- Click Connect.
If you have a corporate logo, you can use this in Portainer.
- Create a .png file (width 310px, height 110px).
- Place it on your public website in the images folder (e.g. mysite.com/images/portainerLogo.png).
- In Portainer, go to Settings.
- Select Use custom logo.
- Enter the location of your logo (e.g. https://mysite.com/images/portainerLogo.png).
