After running this command you will see all these options. I am using the first image – “httpd”

docker run httpd

Now, Check whether your container is up or not, Below command will list all the running containers

docker ps


d951ce6735dd httpd “httpd-foreground” 5 seconds ago Up 3 seconds 80/tcp optimistic_beaver

Using the below commands helps to know the running containers as well as non-running containers

docker ps --all

Note:- If you are trying to access it in the browser it will not because as it is running on a container we need to make a connection between the inside container and outside container.

docker run -p incoming_port:inside_port image_id

Docker run -p 8080:80 d951ce6735dd
