Unable to connect to MongoDB in Docker container - How to fix this error


This article covers solution to the error "Unable to connect to MongoDB in docker container".

Basically, this Docker error happens when there is a port issue.

if a container listens on 127.0.0.1, then the host can't map ports to it.

You need to listen on 0.0.0.0 or similar, and then the -p can reach the container's interface.


How do Docker ports work?

The -P command opens every port the container exposes. 

Docker identifies every port the Dockerfile exposes and the ones that are exposed with the Docker container build --expose parameter. 

Every exposed port is bound directly on a “random” port of the host machine.

The docker build command builds Docker images from a Dockerfile and a “context”. A build's context is the set of files located in the specified PATH or URL . 

The build process can refer to any of the files in the context. 

For example, your build can use a COPY instruction to reference a file in the context.

Docker error while loading shared libraries


This article covers how to fix docker #error while loading shared libraries which happens in the process of building a docker image.
The docker run command creates a container from a given image and starts the container using a given command. It is one of the first commands you should become familiar with when starting to work with #Docker.
Docker containers make it easy to put new versions of software, with new business features, into production quickly—and to quickly roll back to a previous version if you need to.
They also make it easier to implement strategies like blue/green deployments.

To stop all running containers:
1. kill all running #containers with docker kill $(docker ps -q)
2. delete all stopped containers with docker rm $(docker ps -a -q)
3. delete all images with docker rmi $(docker images -q)
4. update and stop a container that is in a crash-loop with docker update --restart=no && docker stop.

Docker originally used Linux Containers (LXC) and was designed for Linux kernel only.

In the case of Windows, Docker uses Hyper-V which is in-built virtualization technology provided by Windows. Docker uses Hypervisor framework in the case of MacOs for virtualization.

Docker is a platform and tool for building, distributing, and running Docker containers.

Kubernetes is a container orchestration system for Docker containers that is more extensive than Docker Swarm and is meant to coordinate clusters of nodes at scale in production in an efficient manner.

DEBIAN_FRONTEND noninteractive in Docker


This article will guide you on why you should not set the DEBIAN_FRONTEND value to noninteractive is a 'cosmetic' change. If you really need to change its setting, make sure to change it back to its default value afterward. Simply prepending an apt command with DEBIAN_FRONTEND=something does not persist after the single command to which it is applied. 

apt-get update downloads the package lists from the repositories and "updates" them to get information on the newest versions of packages and their dependencies. 

It will do this for all repositories and PPAs.

To Preserve Configuration Files:

During package installation or upgrade, Debian may wish to prompt the user on overwriting a configuration file. 

This preference can be appended to the installation command:

apt-get install -q -y \
-o Dpkg::Options::="--force-confdef" \
-o Dpkg::Options::="--force-confold" \
postfix

This command will instruct the installer to quiet any messages, assume yes, and then upgrade configuration files if no changes are present in the new package.
