Updating source code on a working bind server linux
You can even run graphical apps and it doesn’t require a VM.
Onwards we go…While the Docker daemon cannot run directly on WSL, you can use the Docker CLI to connect to a remote Docker daemon running through Docker for Windows or any other VM you create (this article covers both methods).
line is not necessary but it will fix folder and file permissions on WSL mounts so everything isn’t 777 all the time within the WSL mounts. Once you make those changes, sign out and sign back in to Windows to ensure the changes take effect.
to open the task manager, goto the “Services” tab, find the “Lxss Manager” service and restart it.
Ensure Volume Mounts Work This article expects you to have WSL set up already.
If you don’t, I have another article that goes over how to set up an amazing WSL based development environment within Windows.
At this point you must close your terminal and open a new one so that you can run Docker without sudo. We’re going to install Docker Compose using PIP instead of the pre-compiled binary on Git Hub because it runs a little bit faster (both are still Python apps).This seems to only happen if you sign out of Windows instead of doing a full reboot and will likely be fixed in a future 18.03 patch. You’ll be able to access your mounts and they will work perfectly with Docker and Docker Compose without any additional adjustments. If you’re using Con Emu, then you’ll want to make sure to upgrade to the latest alpha release (at least which you can see in the title bar of the settings). Technically you could use a symlink instead of a bind mount, but I’ve been burned in the past when it came to using symlinks and having certain tools not work because they failed to follow them correctly. However, feel free to use symlinks inside WSL to access your bind mount. Yes I know, that means you will be prompt for your root password every time you open a terminal, but we can get around that too because Linux is cool like that.It contains a patched file to support a custom WSL root mount point. If you’re running 17.09 (Fall 2017) you’ll need to do something else.
Here’s step by step instructions for both versions of Windows: First up, open a WSL terminal because we need to run a few commands.
If you do that, goto the “Shared Drives” setting and enable it.
