Installing ownCloud Docker Container on Dply


We’ve covered installing Docker on Dply.co in a previous post, this post will be a follow on to this post and we’ll use Docker containers to install an ownCloud image on dply.co

This post will be an introduction to deploying web applications on dply.co using Docker containers, please note that the free tier of dply.co is only for 2 hours so you should only use it for trial purposes, of course, you can always pay to make it a production version/extending the availability of the VM.

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;

curl -L https://github.com/docker/compose/releases/download/1.12.0/docker-compose-`uname -s`-`uname -m` > /usr/local/bin/docker-compose

Step Three

You’ll then need to apply executable permissions for the binaries using the following command;

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

Step Four

In this step, we shall create the ownCloud compose file from which we’re going to start the ownCloud container, use the following command to achieve that;

nano docker-compose.yml

Step Five

Copy and paste the following commands in the newly created file and then close it, it’s worth noting that using this code will make you use SQLite as the database;

container_name: owncloud
image: owncloud
