Cannot connect to the Docker daemon at unix:/var/run/docker.sock. Is the docker daemon running?

296

I have applied every solution available on internet but still I cannot run Docker.

I want to use Scrapy Splash on my server.

Here is history of commands I ran.

docker run -p 8050:8050 scrapinghub/splash
sudo docker run -p 8050:8050 scrapinghub/splash
sudo usermod -aG docker $(whoami)
sudo docker run -p 8050:8050 scrapinghub/splash
newgrp docker
sudo docker run -p 8050:8050 scrapinghub/splash
reboot
sudo docker run -p 8050:8050 scrapinghub/splash
docker run -p 8050:8050 scrapinghub/splash

You can see I tried to restart my server as well, but it didnt help.

see output of ps -aux | grep docker

You can try out this:

systemctl start docker

It worked fine for me.

P.S.: after if there is commands that you can't do without sudo, try this:

gpasswd -a $USER docker

Just Run

sudo dockerd

dockerd is the daemon service for docker containers, because it is not running in background we're not able to take any actions related to the service, which needs be restarted.
