As you have seen from previous articles deploying a single container can be easy but what if we need to deploy multiple containers that need to communicate with each other? Docker Compose is the tool you are seeking but first we have to install it.
You can find the instructions here:
First, let’s make sure we don’t already have it installed:
$ docker-compose version
Ok, so no Docker Compose
$curl -L “https://github.com/docker/compose/releases/download/1.27.1/docker-compose-$(uname -s)-$(uname -m)” -o /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
Gets the latest stable release of of Docker compose
$chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
Apply the executable permissions to the binary
$ docker-compose –version
This will show you the current version, this proving a successful install
As you can see I like to keep things easy and simple. As always, I hope y’all found this useful.
