[SOLVED] Installing Docker on CentOS 6 after removal of docker-io ~ Linux Fixes

For some time, the docker-io package has been used to install Docker on CentOS 6.

Since early this month, this package no longer appears to be available:

No package docker-io available.
Error: Nothing to do

docker-io was previously part of the epel repository and has been the recommended way to install Docker (albeit, an older version) on CentOS 6 in a number of places.

Is there any other way Docker can be installed on CentOS 6?

I’m not sure why docker-io suddenly disappeared, but the same version previously available through the epel repository can be installed directly from this rpm hosted by Docker:

[root@server]# yum install

[root@server]# docker --version
Docker version 1.7.0, build 0baf609
