Please note that ArangoDB will only work on 64bit.
To start the official Docker container you will have to decide on an authentication method. Otherwise the container won’t start.
Provide one of the arguments to Docker as an environment variable.
There are three options:
Disable authentication completely. Useful for local testing or for operating in a trusted network (without a public interface).
Start ArangoDB with the given password for root
Let ArangoDB generate a random root password
To get going quickly:
docker run -e ARANGO_RANDOM_ROOT_PASSWORD=1 arangodb/arangodb
