If you come across this error, you should fix it by:
- Checking the permissions on the socket file and to do that run:
- The above code will output something like the code shown below, where in this case the owner of the /var/run/docker.sock socket is root and the group is docker
- Once you now know the owner of the socket and the group, you run:
Replace root with the name of the owner in your /var/run/docker.sock socket and group with the name of your group
Voila! That's it!
