Docker - How to Check Container Overview and Logs

Here I describe how to run containers and how to consult the logs.

I run the following on the CLI of my Ubuntu VM.

View which containers are running and their status:

sudo docker ps -a

Check the logs of a container, for example if it won’t start:

sudo docker logs <container name>

Adjust the following:

sudo docker logs <container name>
Replace <container name> with the name of the container

It is also possible to use these docker commands without sudo.
