Pterodactyl's Daemon (Wings) uses Docker to host services. This means to be able to properly run this daemon your hardware needs to support Docker.
Proper Virtualization and Dedicated Servers
If your VPS server is hosted using OpenVZ, Virtuozzo or LXC things may not work as expected. Make sure that your server can run Docker before going through the full setup. If your VPS which essentially is a container does not run Docker, contact your hosting provider and ask about adding a kernel that actually supports it.
If you are uncertain which virtualization engine is used for your server, you can check the following:
Should output the following if your server runs on KVM (proper virtualization):
[...] Hypervisor vendor: KVM Virtualization type: full [...] `
If this is not the case, you can also check
dmidecode -s system-manufacturer
If the output is:
- VMware, Inc.
- some mainboard manufacturer
then you are good.
If it's something like
then you might encounter some issues running docker.
If everything is good you can continue the manual installation path
