Docker client not working under ubuntu 12.04.4

Followed the instructions of installing docker (0.0.9) under ubuntu server 12.04 but every time I run any docker subcommands I got:

read unix /var/run/docker.sock: connection reset by peer

it happens with docker ps, docker info, etc,
running:

  • Building Go app with “vendor” directory on Jenkins with Docker
  • ssh Client into boot2docker
  • Node C++ extension loading in docker only Segfault on Google Compute Engine
  • docker-compose to run django with mongodb
  • Docker Compose (docker-compose) couldn't connect to docker daemon on Windows Server 2016 TP5
  • python creating directories and writing files inside docker container
  • service docker status
    

    reports that docker daemon is running, I have defaults everywhere on a clean 12.04 server installation without firewall. Can you please advice where to look?

  • How to write compile and make log in Dockerfile?
  • Some paths of cgroup of a docker container are missing
  • How to run Linux and Windows docker containers at single windows machine?
  • Docker cannot connect to the host machine
  • docker and image size limit
  • Official Dockerfile uses apt-get commands
  • One Solution collect form web for “Docker client not working under ubuntu 12.04.4”

    what do you get when you run

    ps aux | grep docker
    

    is the Docker daemon in there?

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