Install Docker (Compose) on Oracle Linux 8
2 min read
Welcome! I couldn't find a simple, straightforward tutorial on how to do this. Everything written here is a summation of the Docker documentation on CentOS, as that is what OL is built upon. I will be using Oracle Linux 8 build 2020.12.17-0, for reference. Now, on to the tutorial!
Installing Docker Engine
First, install yum-utils
sudo yum install -y yum-utils
Next, we add the Docker repository
sudo yum-config-manager \ --add-repo \ https://download.docker.com/linux/centos/docker-ce.repo
Now, we can install Docker. Answer
y for all prompts.
sudo yum install docker-ce docker-ce-cli containerd.io
Lastly, start Docker
sudo systemctl start docker
Optionally, run the
hello-world image to make sure everything works
sudo docker run hello-world
Installing Docker Compose
First, download Docker Compose
sudo curl -L "https://github.com/docker/compose/releases/download/1.27.4/docker-compose-$(uname -s)-$(uname -m)" -o /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
Add execution perms to the download
sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
Lastly, we need to link to the
sudo ln -s /usr/local/bin/docker-compose /usr/bin/docker-compose
Now, everything should work. Run
docker-compose --version to confirm.
And that's it! Easy, right?
Thank you for joining me on this adventure and I hope this was some help!
