How do I set up Docker to work with Artifactory on a non-standard SSL port

 

In order to configure Docker to push images to Artifactory using SSL on a port other than port “443”, please use the following steps:

 

1. Edit the .dockercfg file (typically located in your docker-user’s home directory) so that the URL will include the SSL listening port, for example:

 

{

  “https://docker.jfrog.com:5000” : 

    {

      “auth” : “YWRtaW46QVAyZFVadUM0WEh4Z1Q2cld1aHExdlNBMkRk”,

      “email” : “abcd@yourdomain.com”

    }

}

 

2. Edit the nginx.conf file to listen to the SSL port and add the port to the the “proxy_set_header Host $host” line, for example:

 

listen 5000 ssl;

proxy_set_header Host $host:5000;

 

Please reload NGINX after making the changes above (sudo nginx -s reload)

 

3. Tag the docker image that you want to push, so that it will include the SSL port, for example,

 

docker tag ubuntu docker.jfrog.com:5000/ubuntu

 

4. Run “docker push” to push the image, for example:

 

docker push docker.jfrog.com:5000/ubuntu
