Install Docker CE and Docker-Compose on CentOS 8

Install Docker CE and Docker-Compose on CentOS 8

Docker is a set of Platform as a Service (PaaS) products that uses operating system level virtualizations to deliver software in the form of containers. Docker CE (Community Edition) is the strip down version of Docker EE (Enterprise Edition). Docker CE is free and open source and distributed under Apache License 2.0.

In Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 8 / CentOS 8, Support of Docker has been removed by the vendor. Whereas a new containerization platform libpod (Podman's Container Management Library) has been introduced inplace of Docker.

However, we can still install Docker and it’s dependencies on CentOS 8 / RHEL 8 from third party yum repositories.

In this article, we are installing Docker CE and docker-compose on CentOS 8.

 

This Article Provides:

     

    Environment Specification:

    We have configured a CentOS 8 (minimal) virtual machine with following specification.

    • CPU - 3.4 Ghz (2 cores)
    • Memory - 2 GB
    • Storage - 20 GB
    • Operating System - CentOS 8.0
    • Hostname - docker-01.recipes.com
    • IP Address - 192.168.116.206 /24

     

    Adding Docker CE yum Repository on CentOS 8:

    Connect with docker-01.recipes.com using ssh as root user.

    Docker CE is available to download from Docker's official website. However, we can also install it from Docker CE yum repository.

    Add Docker CE yum repository using dnf command.

    [root@docker-01 ~]# dnf config-manager --add-repo=https://download.docker.com/linux/centos/docker-ce.repo Adding repo from: https://download.docker.com/linux/centos/docker-ce.repo

    Build cache for Docker yum repository.

    [root@docker-01 ~]# dnf makecache CentOS-8 - AppStream 7.0 kB/s | 4.3 kB 00:00 CentOS-8 - Base 2.2 kB/s | 3.9 kB 00:01 CentOS-8 - Extras 1.7 kB/s | 1.5 kB 00:00 Docker CE Stable - x86_64 6.5 kB/s | 21 kB 00:03 Metadata cache created.

     

    Installing Docker CE on CentOS 8:

    After addition of Docker CE yum repository, we can now easily install Docker CE on CentOS 8 by using a dnf command.

    Docker CE requires containerd.io-1.2.2-3 (or later) package, which is blocked in CentOS 8. Therefore, we have to use an earlier version of containerd.io package.

    Install docker-ce with an earlier version of containerd.io using following command.

    [root@docker-01 ~]# dnf -y install --nobest docker-ce Last metadata expiration check: 0:21:14 ago on Wed 25 Dec 2019 10:25:37 PM PKT. Dependencies resolved.

    Docker CE has been installed on CentOS 8.

     

    Create a Container using Docker in CentOS 8:

    Let's put Docker into action by creating a simple container.

    For this purpose, we are using official image of Alpine Linux from Docker Hub.

    [root@docker-01 ~]# docker search alpine --filter is-official=true NAME DESCRIPTION STARS OFFICIAL AUTOMATED alpine A minimal Docker image based on Alpine Linux⦠5945 [OK]

    Pull Alpine Linux image from Docker Hub.

    [root@docker-01 ~]# docker pull alpine Using default tag: latest latest: Pulling from library/alpine e6b0cf9c0882: Pull complete Digest: sha256:2171658620155679240babee0a7714f6509fae66898db422ad803b951257db78 Status: Downloaded newer image for alpine:latest docker.io/library/alpine:latest

    List locally available docker images.

    [root@docker-01 ~]# docker images REPOSITORY TAG IMAGE ID CREATED SIZE alpine latest cc0abc535e36 23 hours ago 5.59MB

    Create and run a container using Alpine Linux image.

    [root@docker-01 ~]# docker run -it --rm alpine /bin/sh / # cat /etc/os-release NAME="Alpine Linux" ID=alpine VERSION_ID=3.11.2 PRETTY_NAME="Alpine Linux v3.11" HOME_URL="https://alpinelinux.org/" BUG_REPORT_URL="https://bugs.alpinelinux.org/" / # uname -a Linux c0089c037e24 4.18.0-80.11.2.el8_0.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Sep 24 11:32:19 UTC 2019 x86_64 Linux / # exit

     

    Installing Docker-compose on CentOS 8:

    Additionally, we are installing docker-compose on our CentOS 8 server, so we can create and run multiple containers as a single service.

    Download docker-compose package from GitHub.

    [root@docker-01 ~]# curl -L https://github.com/docker/compose/releases/download/1.25.1-rc1/docker-compose-`uname -s`-`uname -m` -o /usr/local/bin/docker-compose % Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Time Time Current Dload Upload Total Spent Left Speed 100 617 0 617 0 0 546 0 --:--:-- 0:00:01 --:--:-- 546 100 16.2M 100 16.2M 0 0 184k 0 0:01:29 0:01:29 --:--:-- 276k

    Grant execute permissions to docker-compose command.

    [root@docker-01 ~]# chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-compose

    Check docker-compose version.

    [root@docker-01 ~]# docker-compose version docker-compose version 1.25.1-rc1, build d92e9bee docker-py version: 4.1.0 CPython version: 3.7.4 OpenSSL version: OpenSSL 1.1.0l 10 Sep 2019

    We have successfully installed Docker CE and Docker-Compose on CentOS 8. We have only explored the installation of Docker CE here, if you wish to learn more about containers then you should read Docker in Action by Manning Publications.
