docker ps to find the container ID:
$ docker ps CONTAINER ID IMAGE COMMAND CREATED STATUS PORTS NAMES 81b2ad3194cb alexdebrie/livegrep-base:1 "/livegrep-github-re…" 2 minutes ago Up 2 minutes compassionate_yalow
docker exec -it ID bash to start a bash session in that container:
$ docker exec -it 81b2ad3194cb bash
I made the mistake of using
docker attach 81b2ad3194cb first, which attaches you to the command running as CMD in that conatiner, and means that if you hit
Ctrl+C you exit that command and terminate the container!
