Install docker-compose in CentOS

Recently, I installed CentOS 8 for one of our in house development server. The server is used to run various docker images for development purpose. For which we wanted to use docker-compose too. To install docker-compose run:

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

The application is installed in /usr/local/bin/docker-compose. To make it executable run

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

It can be run by typing the full path, but here I will show two options one by creating an alias and another by create a soft link: To create an alias which will work for the user logged in, open your ~/.bashrc file and add the following line

alias docker-compose=’/usr/local/bin/docker-compose’

Now, you are ready to go. You can simple run with ‘docker-compose’ The other method is creating alias, to create an alias, you can add it to any of your executable bin folder,

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