Running the node through docker container minimizes the hassle to install the required utilities for running the node.
In this method, we advocate the user to install the database(PostgreSQL) in a host machine, and the containerized image is connected with the PostgreSQL in the host. So, their database will remain unaffected when the user accidentally stops the container.
The docker method of running the node is tried and tested in the below-mentioned environments.
1. Standalone host OS: Ubuntu Linux — 20.04
2. AWS EC2 hosted OS: Ubuntu Linux — 20.04
In environments other than those mentioned above, the setup steps may not work, we are trying to set it up in other environments, and you will hear from us on this.
