WebFaction
Community site: login faq

I want to host Docker on my WebFaction account, but the installation instructions (https://docs.docker.com/install/linux/docker-ce/centos/) all require that I have higher permissions than shared hosting allows.

I know Digital Ocean has the option for Docker but I don't want to use multiple webhosting services, and I like WebFaction.

I'm running into lots of problems trying to host certain kinds of apps here, including Etherpad, OnlyOffice, and Docker. I got NextCloud running, but I can't hook it up to any apps because WebFaction won't host those apps.

Any insight will be greatly appreciated.

OK. I'm looking at Digital Ocean's droplets for this stuff.

Installing docker would require root permissions, which we do not provide to our shared users. So, unfortunately it doesn't look possible to install at this point in time.

Please note that most software should be able to be setup on our platform from source, https://docs.webfaction.com/software/home-install.html?highlight=install%2520source#installing-software-from-source
