Terminal Access to a Xibo Docker Container

First, we need to know the name of the docker container we want the bash terminal for. This can be done by running the following command on your docker server:

docker ps

Once we have copied the name of the container we wish to connect to, we can run the following command to get a bash terminal to the container:

docker exec -i -t CONTAINID bash (Ex docker exec -i -t xibo_cms-web bash)

Keep in mind that Xibo uses alpine Linux for its base OS. The docker image does not come with a text editor and one will have to be installed. This can be done by running the following command:

Apk add vim

If you don’t like vim you can install another text editor of your choice. For more information on the alpine package manger, follow this link (https://wiki.alpinelinux.org/wiki/Alpine_Linux_package_management).

In future posts, we will be talking about the useful things you can do with the information above. If you don’t want to worry about this type of work or need help with your Xibo instance, check us out at mysignage.rocks.
