I kept having issues with Docker in Almalinux 8/Cloudlinux 8/Centos 8. Basically, any time that the server would reboot, my Docker containers would fail to start. If I restarted the Docker service manually, it would start working. The problem is that Docker manipulates iptables, but when the Firewall would start, Docker’s iptables would be overwritten. After doing a lot of Googling, it seems I have found a solution.
To resolve this create the following in /etc/csf/csfpre.sh
iptables -t nat -N DOCKER
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -m addrtype --dst-type LOCAL -j DOCKER
iptables -t nat -A OUTPUT ! -d 127.0.0.0/8 -m addrtype --dst-type LOCAL -j DOCKER
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s 172.17.0.0/16 ! -o docker0 -j MASQUERADE
iptables -t filter -N DOCKER
iptables -t filter -A FORWARD -o docker0 -j DOCKER
iptables -t filter -A FORWARD -o docker0 -m conntrack --ctstate RELATED,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT
iptables -t filter -A FORWARD -i docker0 ! -o docker0 -j ACCEPT
iptables -t filter -A FORWARD -i docker0 -o docker0 -j ACCEPT
