Troubleshoot docker error when using sail up

Troubleshooting Docker

If you are seeing the message Docker is not running. when executing sail up:

Ensure you have completed all steps in the Install Docker section from Preparing your Environment tutorial. It is important to ensure the usermod command has been executed, and done so as root.

It is possible Docker may simply not be running, so try starting it.

su - 
systemctl start docker

If the problem persists, try restarting the computer to ensure all changes have been loaded.

If you are continuing to see problems after completing these steps, reach out to me. I'd love to both help you resolve this problem, and get information about it added here to help anyone else who encounters it in future!
