unable to evaluate symlinks in Dockerfile

When I input

docker build -t tutum/apache-php .

  • Visual Studio docker app: error mounting source path
  • Get IP address of Docker with Ansible
  • Simple HTTP proxy / routing for my docker containers?
  • Is it possible to use vagrant + aws provider + docker provider?
  • Updating docker-compose Ubuntu 15.10
  • Docker - Mount Windows Network Share Inside Container [duplicate]
  • in docker, it will output the error

    unable to prepare context: unable to evaluate symlinks in Dockerfile path: GetFileAttributesEx C:\User\gao\Dockerfile: The system cannot find the file specified.

    What does this mean? Any advice is helpful. Thank you.

    It means your Dockerfile is missing or incorrectly named. If you want to build a differently named Dockerfile, you can run docker build -t tutum/apache-php -f ./Dockerfile.dev .

    You also appear to be trying to build in a namespace that is in use (tutum) which is strongly recommended against. If you want their image, just run a docker pull tutum/apache-php.

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