The first thing you need to do is install Docker if you don't have it already.
Docker requires a 64-bit operating system running kernel version 3.10 or higher.
To check your current kernel version, open a terminal and use
uname -r to display your kernel version:
# uname -r 3.10.0-229.el7.x86_64
Run the Docker installation script.
# curl -sSL https://get.docker.com/ | sh
If you would like to use Docker as a non-root user, you should now consider adding your user to the "docker" group with something like:
# usermod -aG docker your-user
Remember that you will have to log out and log back in for this to take effect.
Docker compose 1.6 or newer is required. Install it like this:
# curl -L "https://github.com/docker/compose/releases/download/1.12.0/docker-compose-$(uname -s)-$(uname -m)" -o /usr/local/bin/docker-compose # chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
Test the installation:
$ docker-compose --version docker-compose version 1.12.0, build b31ff33
