How To List and Attach to Docker Containers

List Containers

First we’ll list which containers we have running:

docker ps


Your result should look similar to this:

CONTAINER ID IMAGE COMMAND CREATED STATUS PORTS NAMES
9c09acd48a25 fedora:20 /bin/bash 55 minutes ago Up 53 minutes furious_heisenberg


To list all local containers use -a option:

docker ps -a


It is some times handy to view the latest created container, including non-running containers. Simply use the -l option:

docker ps -l


Attach to a Specific Container


To attach to a specific container you must have the <reference_page_text>Container ID. In this case, we’ll attach to the container with the ID 9c09acd48a25 :

docker attach 9c09acd48a25
