Install docker & docker-compose on Oracle Linux

Install docker & docker-compose on Oracle Linux

By default on the new Enterprise Linux distributions, docker engine has been replaced by podman, a docker compliant engine. In order to install docker and docker-compose, you can follow this simple tutorial.

Install Docker Engine

To install docker engine we’ll add first the docker repository:

sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo
Code language: JavaScript (javascript)

And now we can proceed to install docker:

sudo dnf install -y docker-ce docker-ce-cli containerd.ioCode language: CSS (css)

And we can start docker with systemctl

sudo systemctl start docker

Install docker-compose

First let’s download docker-compose to /usr/local/bin

sudo curl -L "$(uname -s)-$(uname -m)" -o /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
Code language: JavaScript (javascript)

And make it executable

chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-compose

Finally, let’s add a link to docker-compose to /usr/bin (this step is not needed if you have /usr/local/bin in your PATH).

ln -s /usr/local/bin/docker-compose /usr/bin/docker-compose

Et voilá, everything is set. You can check if docker-compose is working by running docker-compose --version

  1. Do not use specific versions, use latest.

    sudo curl -L “$(uname -s)-$(uname -m)” -o /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
