Hi, I wonder if anyone has any ideas about this please? I have Docker installed, I've followed the instructions at https://docs.airbyte.io/quickstart/deploy-airbyte but I'm not getting very far. 😉 macOS 11.0.1 Video and error output are attached here. Thanks,

it's your first time with docker in this machine?

could you try:
docker run hello-world
is a simple container to validate docker is ok

Ah, thanks everyone. I don't use Docker very often and didn't have the server running - I assumed that
docker-compose-up
would spawn the server. I wonder if that would be a useful, albeit perhaps obvious, statement to make on https://docs.airbyte.io/quickstart/deploy-airbyte ? It says to install Docker, but nothing about having the server running. Again, looking back - obvious, but there are "step by step" instructions in "Deploy Airbyte" so perhaps that vital step of launching Docker should also be included?

I bet there won't be many people who make the same mistake @[DEPRECATED] Marcos Marx but for the sake of a "_Ensure Docker Server is running_" one-liner, it might cover "my special case". lol! 🙂

tbh, there a few people that try airbyte and need to install docker for the first time, it's the first time having this particular problem. Docker sometimes can be hard to install, nowadays is much simpler. Having a very well getting started doc is important to us, so yes, is a small feedback but very important one @Steve 😄
