How do you make an image in Linode?

Last updated on December 18, 2022 @ 10:27 am

Making an image in Linode is simple, you can follow these steps:

1. First, create a directory to store your image.

2. Then, create a file named “config.yml” in that directory, and add the following lines:.

  • image: “Linode/”

3. The “image” line specifies the name of the image to create. The “Linode” line specifies the Linode host to use for the image. You can find the Linode hostname by running the following command:

  • hostname

4. The image will be created on the Linode host specified in the “Linode” line. You can use the “ls” command to list the contents of the “image” directory.

PRO TIP: If you are not familiar with Linode, or image creation, we strongly recommend that you seek out assistance before attempting to create an image. Incorrectly creating an image can result in data loss.

5. To create the image, run the following command:

  • docker build -t .

6. The “docker” command will create a Docker image based on the “config.yml” file you provided.

7. The “build” command will automatically configure the image to use the Linode instance specified in the “image” line. The image will be named “” and it will be stored in the “image” directory.
