Alpine Linux - Install BASH

The steps below show you how to install BASH inside Alpine Linux. The only reason I need this is because I quite often find that third-party docker images are using Alpine Linux and I would like to use BASH when poking around inside.

Once you know these steps, you can figure out how to install other packages you might need.


apk update
apk upgrade
apk add bash
