    You have to restart the docker daemon with the -g option.

    docker -d -g /home/user1/docker


    docker -d --graph="/home/user1/docker" 

    Keep in mind that once you do this, all your images for that docker daemon instance will get stored on /home/user1/docker

    And also that generally the Docker daemon runs a root. So it’s probably better to specify a directory owned by root

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
