Question

How do I create a Docker droplet?

I went here: https://marketplace.digitalocean.com/apps/docker and clicked the “Create Docker Droplet” button but I see no indication that the droplet it’s creating has Docker installed.

Hi there @swearingendw,

Yes, you could use the image from the Marketplace to quickly deploy a Droplet with Docker preinstalled and configured.

If you need to install Docker manually on an existing Droplet, you could follow the steps from this tutorial here:

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby

never mind, it’s under Marketplace
