How to Install and use Docker Compose on Ubuntu 23.10

Compose is a tool for defining and running multi-container Docker applications. With Compose, you use a Compose file to configure your application's services. Then, using a single command, you create and start all the services from your configuration.

Update Your System

First, make sure your package list is up to date,

apt update -y

apt upgrade -y

Install Docker

If Docker is not already installed on your system, you can install it using the following commands,

apt install

Install Docker Compose

To install Docker Compose, you can use the below commands. You may need to download the latest version of Docker Compose from the official GitHub repository,

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

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

The above command will download and install the latest version of Docker Compose.

Verify Docker Compose Version

Check if Docker Compose was installed successfully by running,

docker-compose --version


root@server:~# docker-compose --version
Docker Compose version v2.23.0
