To install a standalone instance of Akeyless Gateway, run the following command:
docker run -d -p 8000:8000 -p 8200:8200 -p 18888:18888 -p 8080:8080 -p 8081:8081 -p 5696:5696 --name akeyless-gw akeyless/base
After executing the above command, a new container named akeyless-gw should run on Docker (use
docker ps for confirmation). It contains a single instance of Akeyless Gateway.
