Run under docker or similar

At the time of writing of this guide we don't provide out of the box docker images so you have to make your own. It's of a moderate difficulty but in the end it makes it easier to learn how to customize the final image. So in my opinion it a net possitive when it comes to total effort invested.

make your own docker image

start docker

create a directory for the image

mkdir nice_project
cd nice_project

write some magic to the Dockerfile

nano Dockerfile

FROM alpine:edge

RUN apk update && apk upgrade
RUN apk add hinsightd

CMD ["hinsightd"]

and build and start the container

sudo docker build -t nice_project .
sudo docker run nice_project -p 80:8080 --rm -it nice_project

that should create an image that listens on the internal 8080 port, has it's config files at /etc/hinsightd/ and the docroot for the default vhost at /var/www/localhost/htdocs/
