Dozzle is a log viewer for Docker containers through web browser. Dozzle doesn’t store log information, it is for viewing container logs only.
This tutorial explains how to install Dozzle inside a Docker container in the Linux. Commands have been tested on Ubuntu.
Make sure you have installed Docker in your system. If you are using Ubuntu, installation instructions can be found in the post.
- Host network
Run the following command to create a container for Dozzle that uses host network:
docker run -d --name=dozzle --restart=always --network=host \ -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \ -e DOZZLE_USERNAME=admin \ -e DOZZLE_PASSWORD=pwd123 \ amir20/dozzle
- User-defined bridge network
User-defined bridge network can be used for listening on different port. By default, Dozzle service is listening on port 8080. It can be changed with
docker network create app-net
docker run -d --name=dozzle --restart=always --network=app-net \ -p 8081:8080 \ -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \ -e DOZZLE_USERNAME=admin \ -e DOZZLE_PASSWORD=pwd123 \ amir20/dozzle
Note: don't forget to change admin password.
Open a web browser and go to
<IP_ADDRESS> is the IP address of the system. Log in to the web interface using username and password.
To completely remove Dozzle, remove its container:
docker rm --force dozzle
Remove Dozzle image:
docker rmi amir20/dozzle
If a user-defined bridge network was created, you can delete it as follows:
docker network rm app-net
