Dockerfile – how to run script?

Created a docker file, but unable to get run the rail setup script i.e ./bin/setup to execute

What am I doing wrong? RUN /bin/bash -C "/usr/src/app/bin/setup" this does not work.

    I was facing a similar dos/unix issue. I did a git check out of a file in windows and added it to docker image(linux). If that is the case sed is your friend. Just add following to your Dockerfile:

    RUN /bin/sed s/\\r//g -i /usr/src/app/bin/setup

    Might save you from installing an additional package. Hope it help!

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