I have VDS like lxd/container (I see it df -h). Os is installed debian 7.11. Kernel:

uname -r

I want to run mysql in docker which installed into VDS. I pull mysql:

docker images
mysql/mysql-server   5.5      5eb4590ee5eb     8 days ago      180MB

but when I tried to run from root I excepted error

# docker run --privileged --name=mysql2 -d mysql/mysql-server:5.5
docker: Error response from daemon: OCI runtime create failed: container_linux.go:296: starting container process caused "process_linux.go:398: container init caused \"rootfs_linux.go:58: mounting \\\"proc\\\" to rootfs \\\"/var/lib/docker/vfs/dir/52c9680a80799cb05d6d423b329cd15486882b7e196dcbd435084287f0d823bf\\\" at \\\"/proc\\\" caused \\\"permission denied\\\"\"": unknown.

When I installed docker I excepted warning mount: permission denied, but docker installed. When I run docker, I receive warning

service docker start
mount: permission denied
mount: permission denied
mount: permission denied
mount: permission denied
[....] Starting Docker: docker

but service running

service docker status
[ ok ] Docker is running.

I didn't see syslog, my directory /var/log is

Can you help me please?

  • I use docker in LXD containers all the time?? Here is just one guide for doing so but maybe it will help you... blog.simos.info/how-to-run-docker-in-a-lxd-container – bmullan Jan 27 '18 at 12:58
  • Thank you. I can't check it because I have access only LXD-container. But I'm understanding why I got error. – Viktor S Jan 29 '18 at 7:51

Docker can't be run in a container without a specialized setup. Get a proper virtual machine if you want to use Docker.

  • I understand it, but I haven't choice. What is specialized setup meant you? – Viktor S Jan 26 '18 at 11:13
  • You can look it up if you like, but you won't be able to set it up unless you also run the container host (you don't; you leased a container from someone else). Not to mention it isn't all that reliable. – Michael Hampton Jan 26 '18 at 17:14
