Accessing unsupported archived documentation

Supported documentation includes the current version plus the previous five versions.

If you are using a version of the documentation that is no longer supported, which means that the version number is not listed in the site dropdown list, you can still access that documentation in the following ways:

  • By entering your version number and selecting it from the branch selection list for this repo
  • By directly accessing the Github URL for your version. For example, https://github.com/docker/docker.github.io/tree/v1.9 for v1.9
  • By running a container of the specific tag for your documentation version in Docker Hub. For example, run the following to access v1.9:
  docker run  -it -p 4000:4000 docs/docker.github.io:v1.9
