Default Docker entrypoint

I am creating an image from another image that set a specific entrypoint. However I want my image to have default one. How do I reset the ENTRYPOINT?

I tried the following Dockerfile:

  • Docker container doesn't reload Angular app
  • docker selenium hub not accessible from different machine (in same network) [docker selenium grid not working]
  • Reduce memory consumption in rake assets:precompile
  • Issues with running a consul docker health check
  • Docker Container from php:5.6-apache as root
  • /var/run/docker.sock: no such file or directory. Are you trying to connect to a TLS-enabled daemon without TLS?
  • FROM some-image
    ENTRYPOINT ["/bin/sh", "-c"]
    

    Unfortunately it doesn’t work like the default entrypoint as it need the command to be quoted.

    docker run myimage ls -l /    # "-l /" arguments are ignored
    file1 file2 file3             # files in current working directory
    
    docker run myimage "ls -l /"  # works correctly
    

    How do I use commands without quoting?

  • Connection refused: PHPUnit selenium in Docker
  • .docker/config.json vs .dockercfg
  • Unable to run Spring Mvc tutorial example in a tomcat Docker
  • Can't clone public repo from within Dockerfile
  • docker how to commit but exclude directory from image
  • restart nginx container when upstream servers is updated
  • One Solution collect form web for “Default Docker entrypoint”

    To disable an existing ENTRYPOINT, set an empty array in your docker file

    ENTRYPOINT []
    

    Then your arguments to docker run will exec as normal.

    The reason your ENTRYPOINT ["/bin/sh", "-c"] requires quoted strings is that without the quotes, the arguments to ls are being passed to sh instead.

    Unquoted results in lots of arguments to sh

    "/bin/sh", "-c", "ls", "-l", "/"
    

    Quoting allows the complete command (-c) to be passed to sh

    "/bin/sh", "-c", "ls -l /"
    
    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
