How do I upload a Docker image to DigitalOcean?

Last updated on September 25, 2022 @ 2:18 pm

There are a few ways to upload a Docker image to DigitalOcean. The simplest way is to use the DigitalOcean command line interface. You can use the following command to upload a Docker image to a DigitalOcean Droplet:

docker images | grep hello > my-image.img

You can also use the DigitalOcean Droplet Manager to upload a Docker image. You can use the Droplet Manager to create a new Droplet, select the Images tab, and select the my-image.

PRO TIP: Docker is a powerful tool that can help you automate the deployment and management of your applications. However, it is important to understand the basics of how Docker works before using it in production.

One common question is how to upload a Docker image to DigitalOcean. While there are a number of ways to do this, we recommend using the command line tool, docker-machine. This tool will help you create and manage your Docker hosts on DigitalOcean.

Before using docker-machine, you will need to create a personal access token with read/write permissions. You can do this by going to the Applications & API section of your DigitalOcean control panel. Once you have your token, you can use the docker-machine create command to create a new Docker host. For example:

$ docker-machine create –driver digitalocean –digitalocean-access-token

This will create a new Docker host with the specified hostname. You can then use the docker-machine ls command to view all of your hosts:

$ docker-machine ls
