This issue is outside the control of the docker image, and more to do with how docker itself is running the container. Docker running on fedora or CentOS will run just fine with the instructions you've listed (see output below). The issue comes in docker not allowing the cap_set_file permission without being run as a privileged container. See for example ->


What are you using to run the docker images?

On my CentOS 7 system, this works just fine.

[jperrin@monster docker]$ cat Dockerfile
FROM centos:centos7
RUN yum -y install httpd
[jperrin@monster docker]$ docker build --rm -t jperrin/httpd .
