With the help of the Vultr Docker application, you can easily deploy Docker on your Vultr server instance. Meanwhile, you can facilitate Docker managing tasks with one of those graphical tools such as DockerUI and Shipyard.
In this article, we will be covering the process of installing
Shipyard on a Vultr Docker server instance to manage your Docker containers.
Deploy a server instance using the
Vultr Docker on CentOS 7 x64 application.
If applicable, update the systemâs libraries and kernel to the latest available version. Updates such as this usually require a reboot.
sudo yum update sudo shutdown -r now
After the reboot, log in from your terminal using the same
sudo user and start Docker:
sudo systemctl start docker.service sudo systemctl enable docker.service
Next, we will covering the process of installing
Shipyard on a Vultr Docker server instance. You can pick either of them depending on your requirements and preference.
DockerUI will listen on port port
9000, so you need to modify the firewall configurations:
sudo firewall-cmd --add-port 9000/tcp --permanent sudo firewall-cmd --add-port 9000/tcp
Install DockerUI using the following command:
sudo docker run -d -p 9000:9000 -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock portainer/portainer
Note: For now, SELinux is disabled in the Vultr Docker app, so you don't need to add the "--privileged" parameter in the command above.
Visit DockerUI from your browser:
http://[YourServerIP]:9000, then you can manage your Docker containers and images in the intuitive interface of DockerUI.
For example, you can easily pull the latest Ubuntu image from the official Docker repository:
Click the "Images" menu on the above, then click the "Pull" button. In the pop-up window, input the image name "ubuntu", leave other fields blank and click the "Pull" button.
Wait for a while, then click the "Refresh" button. You will find that the Ubuntu image has been pulled into your current Docker container.

Shipyard will listen on port port
8080, so you need to modify the firewall configurations:
sudo firewall-cmd --add-port 8080/tcp --permanent sudo firewall-cmd --add-port 8080/tcp
Then install Shipyard using the following command:
sudo sh -c "curl -sSL https://shipyard-project.com/deploy | bash -s"
A successful installation will conclude with the following message:
Shipyard available at http://[YourServerIP]:8080 Username: admin Password: shipyard
Now you can log in and use Shipyard from your browser using the info above.
