To start Minikube with Docker, follow these steps:

  1. Install Docker: First, make sure you have Docker installed on your machine. You can download and install Docker from the official Docker website (https://www.docker.com/get-started).
  2. Install Minikube: Download and install Minikube based on your operating system from the Minikube GitHub repository (https://github.com/kubernetes/minikube/releases).
  3. Start Minikube: Open your command prompt or terminal and run the following command to start Minikube with Docker: minikube start --driver=docker This command tells Minikube to start with the Docker container runtime.
  4. Verify Minikube status: Run the following command to verify the status of your Minikube cluster: minikube status If the cluster has started successfully, you should see a message indicating that the cluster is running.


Now you have Minikube started with Docker as the container runtime. You can start deploying and managing Kubernetes resources using the kubectl command-line tool.

  1. First, make sure you have Docker installed: Visit https://www.docker.com/get-started, download Docker, and follow the installation instructions for your operating system.
  2. Next, install Minikube by downloading it from the Minikube GitHub repository: https://github.com/kubernetes/minikube/releases. Choose the version compatible with your OS and follow the installation instructions.
  3. Open a terminal or command prompt and start Minikube with Docker by running the following command:
1
minikube start --driver=docker


This command tells Minikube to use Docker as the container runtime.

  1. Verify the status of your Minikube cluster by running:
1
minikube status


If the cluster has started successfully, you should see a message indicating that it is running.

  1. Once Minikube is up and running with Docker, you can begin deploying and managing Kubernetes resources using the kubectl command-line tool. This setup allows you to work with Kubernetes locally on your machine.
