Docker load

Docker load

docker load restores a Docker image from a tar archive.

It is mostly used in conjunction with docker save command to transfer a Docker image without using Docker Hub or another registry.

To load an image from a file named nginx-backup.tar, the following command can be run:

docker load -i nginx-backup.tar

This command also recognizes gzip, bzip2 and xz compression, and decompresses the file automatically. Therefore, it can be used even without decompressing manually:

docker load -i nginx-backup.tar.gz
