curl -L https://raw.githubusercontent.com/plankanban/planka/master/docker-compose.yml -o docker-compose.yml
Next, edit the
docker-compose.yml file, and change the following variables
BASE_URLvariable to the actual IP address of your server
SECRET_KEY-- Change this to a random string/password other than
user-avatars-- Set this to a path within your server, where the user-avatars would be stored
project-background-images-- Set this to a path within your server, where the project-background-images would be stored
attachments-- Set this to a path within your server, where the attachments would be stored
db-data-- Set this to a path within your server, where the db-data would be stored

Next, run the docker-compose command to start the container,
docker-compose up -d
Wherein you'll see the following output,
