NAME


docker-commit - Create a new image from a container's changes

SYNOPSIS


docker commit [-a|--author[=AUTHOR]] [-c|--change[=[DOCKERFILE INSTRUCTIONS]]] [--help]
[-m|--message[=MESSAGE]] [-p|--pause[=true]] CONTAINER [REPOSITORY[:TAG]]

DESCRIPTION


Create a new image from an existing container specified by name or container ID. The new
image will contain the contents of the container filesystem, excluding any data volumes.

While the docker commit command is a convenient way of extending an existing image, you
should prefer the use of a Dockerfile and docker build for generating images that you
intend to share with other people.

OPTIONS


-a, --author=""
Author (e.g., "John Hannibal Smith ⟨hannibal@a-team.com⟩")

-c , --change=[]
Apply specified Dockerfile instructions while committing the image
Supported Dockerfile instructions:
CMD|ENTRYPOINT|ENV|EXPOSE|LABEL|ONBUILD|USER|VOLUME|WORKDIR

--help
Print usage statement

-m, --message=""
Commit message

-p, --pause=true|false
Pause container during commit. The default is true.

EXAMPLES


Creating a new image from an existing container


An existing Fedora based container has had Apache installed while running in interactive
mode with the bash shell. Apache is also running. To create a new image run docker ps to
find the container's ID and then run:

# docker commit -m="Added Apache to Fedora base image" \
-a="A D Ministrator" 98bd7fc99854 fedora/fedora_httpd:20

Note that only a-z0-9-_. are allowed when naming images from an existing container.

Apply specified Dockerfile instructions while committing the image


If an existing container was created without the DEBUG environment variable set to "true",
you can create a new image based on that container by first getting the container's ID
with docker ps and then running:

# docker commit -c="ENV DEBUG true" 98bd7fc99854 debug-image
