## How to build and use the docker images
## After starting a container
After starting a container you can go to [http://localhost:8080/](http://localhost:8080/) or []( if you use boot2docker.
It might take a while before the docker container is responding to queries.
You can check the status with `sudo docker logs -f gitlab-ce`.
You can login to the web interface with username `root` and password `5iveL!fe`.
Next time, you can just use docker start and stop to run the container.
## How to build the docker images
This guide will also let you know how to build docker images yourself.
Please run all the commands from the GitLab repo root directory.
People using boot2docker should run all the commands without sudo.
