Docker common issues

The Fire CI agent needs the Docker daemon to be running on your system.

If it's not you'll get the following error:

  Cloning into 'fireci'...
  ...
  git checkout -b
  
  HEAD is now at 777ee45... Fire CI is awesome
  Couldn't connect to Docker daemon. You might need to start Docker.
If your daemon docker is not running then start the Docker executable.

You should have an icon tray saying Docker is running. This is how it should look on Mac and Windows 10:

IMPORTANT: In some cases the daemon runs but is somehow not visible to client applications. This is an OS related that can be easily solved: open a terminal and run the command 'docker build .'. It will fail with an error but it somehow "awakes" the daemon and then all applications can use it.
