Q

How to Start Alpine Container with the "docker container start" command?

A

If you want to start the Alpine container with its default command, you can use the "docker container start" command.

1. Run "docker container start" command with console attached and interactively. You see no output messages on the console.

$ docker container start --attach --interactive my_alpine

2. Check the container status.

$ docker container list --latest

CONTAINER ID  IMAGE   COMMAND    CREATED             STATUS                    NAMES
fddc7452d4f6  alpine  "/bin/sh"  About a minute ago  Exited (0) 5 seconds ago  my_alpine

As you can see, the default command, "/bin/sh", starts a shell and exits immediately. So the default command is doing nothing.
