How to Correctly Upload a Docker Image?

I’ve built my Docker container, saved it as an image with “docker save…” and uploaded it to DigitalOcean where it goes into “pending” status on the Images–>Custom Images page. Then it gets deleted and is no longer visible. Any idea where to start troubleshooting? It seems like there might be some check performed on the image that is failing–??

For storing docker image on DigitalOcean, you should use Container Registry You can check out Container Registry by choosing Images, and choose Container Registry tab. If you haven’t created one, you will be prompted to create one when accessing the page. After creating a Container Registry, you can then login, build your Docker image, and push to your container registry.
