Grab Files from a Docker Container

Almost as simple as a standard copy command:

$ docker cp messages:/home/virgo/ /tmp

This docker command copies the Virgo Server located in the directory /home/virgo/ from inside the messages container to the /tmp folder of the current system. This allows to investigate the Virgo container locally:

$ cd /tmp/virgo
$ ./bin/ -clean

Note: Since the installation directory of the Virgo container changed you need to add the -clean flag.
