docker run -it <image>:<tag>  --restart always [/bin/bash]

-d for daemon
--name for name
-p to expose port

Stop docker container gracefully:

docker stop <container id|name>

Stop all running containers:

docker stop $(docker ps -a -q)

Start docker container:

docker start <container id>

Start all containers:

docker start $(docker ps -a -q)

Kill container immediately:

docker kill <container id>
