If you have the Python Hello Website Container running as shown in the last tutorial, you continue to test it.

1. Check the conainer status:

$ docker container list     
CONTAINER ID  IMAGE       COMMAND                CREATED        STATUS        PORTS               
7da8f1fa7fcc  python-web  "python hello-web.py"  6 seconds ago  Up 3 seconds>80/tcp

2. Send a HTTP request to localhost:8080 which is mapped to the port 80 on the container.

$ curl http://localhost:8080

<h3>Hello World!</h3>
<b>Hostname:</b> 7da8f1fa7fcc<br/>
<b>Visits:</b> <i>cannot connect to Redis, counter disabled</i>

3. Attach a TTY shell console to the container and test it there.

$ docker container exec --tty --interactive 7da8f1fa7fcc /bin/sh 

# ps -ef
root         1     0  0 01:55 ?        00:00:00 python hello-web.py
root        56     0  0 02:07 pts/0    00:00:00 /bin/sh
root        62    56  0 02:07 pts/0    00:00:00 ps -ef

# cd /app
# ls
Dockerfile  hello-web.py  package.lst

# curl
<h3>Hello World!</h3>
<b>Hostname:</b> 7da8f1fa7fcc<br/>
<b>Visits:</b> <i>cannot connect to Redis, counter disabled</i>

# exit

As you can see, our new Python Hello Website is working correctly. You can access it from the host system as http://localhost:8080 or on the container as
