    Step One

    Follow the first post to create an account and install Docker.

    Step Two

    In the terminal window, we’ll need to install Docker compose using the following command;

    sudo curl -o /usr/local/bin/docker-compose -L “https://github.com/docker/compose/releases/download/1.11.2/docker-compose-$(uname -s)-$(uname -m)”

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

    1-1 - Webmin Docker on Dply

    Step Four

    In this step, we should create the docker-compose file to deploy Let’s Chat use the following command to do that;

    nano docker-compose.yml

    1-2 - Webmin Docker on Dply
