I tried setting up a speckle server following the guides in the repo here: GitHub - speckleworks/SpeckleServer: Speckle Server 🚀
I have successfully set up a Docker droplet on Digital Ocean and ssh with root and also created a new user following the instructions here: Initial Server Setup with Ubuntu 16.04 | DigitalOcean
After this I executed the suggested commands in the “5 min Docker Install”. However, when I run the docker-compose up command it gives the following error:
sigve@docker-speckle:~/speckle$ docker-compose up
ERROR: Couldn’t connect to Docker daemon at http+docker://localhost - is it running?
If it’s at a non-standard location, specify the URL with the DOCKER_HOST environment variable.
I read this:
With the exception of the local Docker Machine setup, configurations where it’s even possible to set $DOCKER_HOST to something else are dangerously insecure. Remember that being able to reach the Docker socket is equivalent to unrestricted root-level access over that system.

Someone run into the same issue? I’m really new to this…
