How Do You Enter a Docker Container?

Problem scenario
You have a Docker host that is running Linux (the server with Docker containers).  You want to run commands inside a Docker container.  How do you get into a Docker container?

You need to know the container ID of a running container.  To find it run this: docker ps -a

Run this command:
docker exec -it <container ID> bash
