[fix] Cannot connect to the Docker daemon at unix:var/run/docker.sock. Is the docker daemon running?


docker - Cannot connect to the Docker daemon at unix
Docker Error Message:
Last login: Sat Feb 12 15:03:21 on console
 % docker run hello-world

docker: Cannot connect to the Docker daemon at unix:///var/run/docker.sock. 
Is the docker daemon running?.
See 'docker run --help'.

If you try to execute the Docker run command in Terminal and you get the above error, then it's because Docker Desktop is not running.

Fix:
  1. Go to Spotlight Search,
  2. Type: Docker and open the App
  3. You would see it on your Apple Menu bar,
  4. Make sure you see: "Docker is running"
    Make sure docker is running
    Make sure docker is running
