Unfortunately it is not currently possible to install Docker on shared-hosting.

This includes installing Docker on Ecenica shared-web hosting, or installing Docker on Ecenica Managed VPS with cPanel/WHM installed.

The reason why you cannot install Docker is because Docker requires specific user privileges which would pose a security risk to you and other users hosted on the shared server.

Whilst it is not possible to install Docker on shared-hosting, it may be possible to deploy your application to your Ecenica shared-hosting using one of the following pre-installed features;

  • SSH
  • Git
  • SFTP
  • WP-CLI
  • Composer

Please check your application and Ecenica plan for feature availability and compatibility.
